Country Club Chicken

Gooey cheese, bacon, chicken - amazing dinner under 25 minutes !

I love anything Country Club, sandwiches, salads and especially this Country Club Chicken which is served over pasta. The dish can also be served with rice.

It is a very filling dish and can easily feed 6 – 8 people. When I put the recipe together on paper, it looked just right for about 4 servings, but boy, was I wrong ! The bacon and cheese make the dish very rich and filling and even though the quantities look on the scant side, it is not.

Next time you need to feed a crowd (especially if you have teenagers with friends over!) this is the perfect dish to make. I have never come across anyone not liking the Country Club Chicken, and it is in fact now one of the most requested chicken recipes – not only from my family, but even when we have an informal dinner with friends.

What I love most, and you will too if you are anything like me, is that only one skillet is used to cook all the ingredients ! Less dishes – bonus !
