Chicken/Bacon

Chicken/Bacon

This meal is is sort of a hodgepodge of recipes I found and then modified to fit my specific needs.  The list of ingredients for the whole meal are as follows:

  • 4 chicken breast
  • 1 lb bacon
  • 1 cup mexican blend finely shredded cheese
  • as much whole grain pasta as you think you need
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 4 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2-15 oz cans green beans

I cup the bacon up and then cooked thoroughly.  I set the bacon aside and added half of the drippings to the green beans.  I dumped the rest of the drippings.  Then I added 2 tbsp olive oil and a tbsp butter to the pan.  Then I added the cubed chicken breasts (and half a tsp salt) and cook until almost done.  I added 1 clove garlic (minced) and finished cooking the chicken.  Once the chicken was done, I added the bacon back in and topped everything with the cheese.  I let stand (removed from the heat) until the cheese melted.  Meanwhile, in a large pot of water, I cooked my noodles as per the directions on the box.  In a small sauce pan I melted 2 tbsp butter.  Then I added 3 garlic cloves (minced), 2 tbsp lemon juice, and 1/2 tsp salt.  I heated until the garlic was tender.  I tossed the sauce with the cooked, drained noodles. The green beans and bacon drippings I heated until there was almost no liquid left.  The meal was delicious.
