Chicken Dish Recipe




"One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating." ~ Luciano Pavarotti

This is a new favorite of mine -- a recipe given to my parents long ago by dear friend Margaret. That's why it's called Maggie's Chicken, or nicknamed T.B.E. Chicken Dish (The Best Ever). Hope you enjoy it on one of these cold days.

T.B.E. Chicken Dish

10 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
Bacon
1 pint sour cream
1 small jar Armor Chipped Beef


Wash and pat dry breasts. (Okay, guys, no wisecracks!) Put one slice of beef on bottom of each breast and wrap with a bacon slice. Mix sour cream and soup together in a small bowl. Place wrapped breasts in a casserole baking dish, leaving a bit of room between each. Pour over the soup/sour cream mix. Cover with foil and bake at 300 degrees for about 3 1/2 - 4 hours. Voila.


Behold:


Note: The gravy looks like it's stuck bad to the casserole dish, but it's one of my parents' clay dishes, so it just appears to be a mess. Dad cooked this one for my family, and it may have just stayed in the oven a tad too long. :) But the gravy and gras-du (pot liquor) are some of the yummiest things about this recipe.

Glad I don't have to scrub that dish back to sparkling clean when I've finished stuffing my face.

Hilary said...

It looks and sounds delicious but I can feel my hips growing just looking at it! But, yum!

Literary Nut said...

Yeah, that does look pretty scrumptious, but like jinksy said...I'm so glad I don't have to scrub that pan clean!

Terri Tiffany said...

What is armour chipped beef?? I love the quote up top!

Kathryn Magendie said...

Morning Angie - kiss little butter buns Bandit for me - snuggly little puppy poo! :)

Angie Ledbetter said...

LOL, Jinksy. I added a note about that to the post.

Well, Hilary, that's what good food's supposed to do. :) Nah, it won't hurt ya if you only eat "richly" every now and then.

Welcome, Literary Nut! The clean-up wasn't too bad. i just let it soak overnight.

Thanks, Terri. Loved dat quote myself. Look for chipped beef (small glass jar by Armor) on the aisle with tuna, canned ham, etc.

Kathryn, will kiss that cutie boy when I get home from Mom's later today. Soooo presh!

Mmmm...

Debbie said...

Why do you want to go and make us all hungry so early in the day?

Michelle H. said...

Well, you just added the 21 lbs I lost during the holidays. Thanks, I think.

you are so going to get a comment about the "patting the chicken" part from you-know-who ;-)

Suldog said...

Off your topic, but I felt you should know, considering my own posting today:

I just wanted to make sure that you know that I know the difference between Louisiana Andouille and French Andouille (although I'm not sure if I know the correct spelling in either case.) Yours contains butt meat, while theirs contains everything leading up to the butt. Thus, I would eat yours, but theirs is putrid.

Ang said...

I don't think I've ever eaten chipped beef. It sounds great. A definite "must try" for the Ross's. Thanks Angie.

Angie Ledbetter said...

Janna, yea.

I wanted y'all to be hungry like I am most of the time, Debbie. :)

Michelle, a little yummy comfort soul food won't pack the pounds back on! (And I'm as surprised as you that someone passed on the chicken-patting comment.)

Oh, Suldawg, my friend. That is such a loaded comment, I darest not touch it. LOL But OUR andouille is good eats.

Ang, I want reportage when ya do!

A yes, unfortunately Luciano took that time out a little too often.

Melissa Marsh said...

Chipped beef - oh wow, my Mom used to fix this on toast all the time.

That chicken sounds YUMMY.

Last time I patted the chicken, oh nevermind. With the other ingredients, you could use road apples instead of chicken and it would be great. Oren

Angie Ledbetter said...

Hey, Nannette! Thanks for stopping by. Poor Luciano...at least he lived life large in every way. :)

Mine too, Melissa. Comfort food from childhood.

LOL *slaps Oren's fingers*. Road apples?

this sounds pretty similar to something I make...except mine is more of a chicken rice casserole. Made it last night, in fact!
