This one comes from my mother-in-law, Sandi. Which she got from one of her dear friend/co-worker, Brenda. She’s been making this one for as long as I can remember, and don’t forget I’ve been eating at her kitchen table for about 25 years now. I remember being invited to my then boyfriends house for dinner, and this was a dish she made I’ll never forgot. SO good! I love the fact that I now serve it to her grandkids, while making something that brings back memories for the hubs. One of those full circle moments.

It’s one of those comfort dishes and every time I make it, there are NEVER any leftovers. It has quickly become one of my children’s favorites. They refer to it as, “Grandma’s Chicken with the gravy” and I love that.

It’s quite simple to throw together. Can even be done ahead of time and refrigerated on busy days. I’m all about that! Now, if you’re watching your calories, it may not be the best choice, but heck….who cares! I don’t. It’s that good, and to me it’s worth splurging on. I have however tweaked the original recipe with brown rice + ‘low fat’ + ‘reduced sodium’ ingredients. Which hasn’t really altered the taste, so I’ll leave that up to you.

  • 6-8 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • I-2 package(s) of Buddig Beef or jar of dried beef
  • 1 large 22 oz can ‘fat free’ Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 16 oz ‘light’ sour cream
  • 1 pkg. bacon, uncooked
  • 1/4 cup of chicken stock or sherry

Pre-heat oven to 275 degrees.

Place a slice of dried beef under chicken breast and secure by wrapping each breast with a piece or two of uncooked bacon. Then place wrapped chicken breast in baking dish. Repeat with each breast.

In a medium size bowl mix together sour cream + cream of chicken soup and chicken stock (or sherry). Pour evenly over chicken, using a spatula to spread and cover chicken evenly.

Bake covered with foil for 2 hours. Remove foil and bake an additional hour. Total cook time three hours. Yes, 3 hours. Nice and slow. It makes for really tender chicken and a delish gravy. You’ll see, totally worth the wait.

Remove from oven and let stand 10 minutes, allowing sauce to set up a little. Carefully scoop up chicken breast and place on top of your carb of choice. I suggest serving over rice or wide egg noodles. My family digs it over short grain brown rice. Be sure to ladle that yummy gravy over top. The *BEST* part!

I usually pair with a steamed green veggie and whole grain dinner rolls. Dang, this is making me hungry just typing this.

Seriously. Enjoy!

So excited to try this one too, Landyn! I look forward to all your posts – especially the recipes! I am absolutely going to make this next time I have company over – I love that it’s something I can prep ahead of time and put into the oven, rather than watch over the stove. BTW, My mother in laws name is Sandy too! 🙂

Oh Kristina! GREAT! I’m happy you are enjoying! Hope your Sandy is as good as mine! Xx

We call this Chicken wrapped in bacon at my house and the only difference is I use Cream of Mushroom soup. Delish!

I made this last night and my family loved it! And that’s saying a lot considering my kids (ages 8&6) can be quite picky! I look forward to trying other recipes!

P.S. The new blog looks great! I check daily….ok sometimes several times a day for new content! 😎

Hi Landyn, love your blog, lifestyle tips, and menu items! I am loving the ‘E’ bread also! You mentioned you have given up dairy so in recipes like Sandi’s Chicken with the delicious gravy do you make a different meal for yourself or do you use nondairy sour cream, etc.
Thanks
