Chicken with Rosemary, Bacon, Cream Sauce

Every now and then you have to splurge with a little bacon, right?  It makes the house smell great and it makes any meal taste better.  This week, I made a quick and easy chicken recipe with a rosemary, bacon, cream sauce.  It was delicious!  Hearty for these fall nights.  I put it over rice, but you could easily put it over quinoa or gluten free pasta instead.

Chicken with Rosemary, Bacon, Cream Sauce

Pieces:

  1. 2 chicken breasts
  2. 6 slices bacon
  3. 1 cup coconut milk
  4. 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  5. 2 tsp. pepper

Process:

  1. Cut the bacon into small pieces, maybe a half inch by half inch.  Tip:  I use kitchen scissors!
  2. In a large saute pan on high heat, saute the bacon until it starts to sizzle, but isn’t fully cooked (about 3-4 minutes).
  3. Drain the bacon fat and put the bacon bits back into the pan.
  4. Push the bacon aside and place the chicken breasts in the pan.  Sprinkle the chicken generously with pepper on both sides.  Saute the chicken on high heat about 2 minutes each side, just to brown the outside.
  5. Turn the heat down to medium.  Add the coconut milk and rosemary.
  6. Cover and let simmer until the chicken is cooked through and the coconut milk cooks off, about 15-20 minutes.  You may take off the lid for the last few minutes.
  7. Serve hot over rice, quinoa, or pasta by adding the chicken and spooning a generous amount of bacon and sauce over it.  Garnish with rosemary.

Happy Allergy Free Eating!
