Are you looking for a great low-carbohydrate chicken recipe? Would you like to know how to prepare a quick and easy chicken recipe that will make your family and friends think you are a superstar in the kitchen? Well, hold on to your spatula, because Bacon and Mushroom Skillet Chicken is all that and more!
Have you ever wondered just how many chicken recipes there are in the world? I set out on a search to find out but sadly I couldn’t find an exact number. The website Allrecipes alone lists over five thousand. So, I think I can safely say that worldwide chicken recipes must number in the tens of thousands.
I know at our house we have chicken several times a week, prepared lots of different ways, and I’m always on the lookout for new and easy chicken recipes. But as much as we like all of the other chicken dishes I make, this recipe for yummy bacon, mushroom, and thyme chicken is one of our all-time favorites, and I know your family will love it too.
Bacon and Mushroom Skillet Chicken is the perfect dish! This skillet chicken thigh recipe is quick, it’s easy, you only have to use one pan, and it’s delicious. Plus, not only is it great for busy weeknight family dinners, but it’s also perfect company fare too! And the best part, you can have it on the table in less than 30 minutes.
Just the name alone should peak your interest. I mean really, bacon, what’s not to love? And mushrooms, is there anything better? And chicken thighs, well, enough said! But wait, as if it couldn’t get any better, combine the bacon, mushrooms, and chicken with a rich, creamy, decadent sauce made with heavy cream and well, you get the idea! Is your mouth watering yet?
What to serve with Bacon and Mushroom Chicken Skillet?
I usually serve Bacon and Mushroom Chicken Skillet over my Creamy Make-Ahead Mashed Potatoes, along with a salad, and can I just tell you it is scrumptious! We are having the leftovers tonight, and I can’t wait! And, yes, the leftovers are just as good the next day!
Can you substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the chicken thighs?
Of course; I prefer dark meat myself, but my husband prefers white meat. Either works well in this easy chicken recipe.
