Good chicken breasts


One of my readers wrote a while back and asked if I would do a post about some recipes that work well for Sunday dinner. This chicken recipe is one of our favorites.

Good Chicken Breasts
10 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (for each piece of chicken you need a slice of ham and a slice of bacon)
10 slices deli ham
10 slices bacon (I use turkey bacon)
toothpicks
8 oz. sour cream
8 oz. can sliced mushrooms, drained (optional)
1/2 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1 can cream of chicken soup

Trim chicken breast of any fat and skin. Cut in half if they are really large.

Wrap each piece with a slice of the ham and a slice of the bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Place in a large baking pan. This part of the recipe can be done on Saturday night.

Mix together the sour cream, dried onion soup mix, and cream of chicken soup. Before baking top the chicken breasts with the mushrooms and then the soup mixture. Cover the pan with foil. Bake at 250 degrees for 3 1/2 hours. Before serving stir the sauce.

This is good with mashed potatoes or noodles.

If you have any recipes that you have found that work well for Sunday dinner feel free to link or post them here - I'm always glad to have some new ideas.

    A couple of years ago I got a new oven so now I can set it to cook while we are at church. I’m always on the lookout for Sunday dinner menus so I’ll give this one a try! Thanks for including pictures. This looks yummy!

    Wow, Becca. This one looks yummy! I’m sure the ham and bacon really add a delicious taste, but I’m tempted to try it without the pork. We’re trying to limit the excess calories–and the rest of the ingredients can go low fat. Hmmm. Worth a try anyway! 🙂

    Oh, I forgot to mention that I noticed the cucumbers there as a delicious looking side dish! 🙂

    Rhonda, it was actually cooked zucchini and onions!

    The ham and bacon do add a really good taste to the chicken–sort of like chicken cordon bleu. I use very thinly sliced ham and the turkey bacon which is a little lower in fat than the real stuff. I’m sure it would still taste pretty good without the additional meats. You’ll have to let me know if your try it.

    Hi Becka ~ i just posted a recipe that fits in the category of “Sunday After Church” meals. Here’s the link: http://girottifamily.typepad.com/mountain_musings/2009/02/holiday-shopping-beef-stew.html

    I think your Chicken Breasts recipe looks delicious…we girls would like it, but unfortunately, the guys would think it’s too gloppy.

    One of our favorite bake-during-church dishes is a chicken cordon bleu casserole, which is basically recipe-less. Pound chicken breast halves to uniform thickness, top with thin-sliced ham, sprinkle on some mozzarella shreds, and roll up. Place them in a casserole dish. Spread a can of cream of chicken soup over it, sprinkle Italian herbed breadcrumbs on top and more mozzarella over all. Cover with foil and bake for an hour or so. The gravy it makes is terrific!

    Deb and Danette, Both of you have posted recipes that sound delicous! I can always use new ideas for Sunday, so I’ll have to give these a try.

    OK, Becka. I’ve got all the ingredients (including the ham and turkey bacon!) and I’m set to go for tomorrow. My family loves “gloppy,” Deb, so that’s all the more reason to try it. Thanks for the tips! 🙂

    MMMMMmmmmm, good! The whole family loved the chicken, Becka. They pronounced it “definitely company worthy,” which is a very high compliment in this family. I served it with brown rice, buttered carrots, and ford hook lima beans. My gravy didn’t look like yours, however, and now that I look back at the recipe, I realize I used a whole envelope of onion soup mix, rather than 1/2. So, that does make a difference! Next time I’ll remember to use only 1/2. I used fresh baby bella mushrooms–very yummy. Thanks for the recipe. Very easy and very impressive. We really must come up with a better name for the dish, however. Good Chicken just doesn’t do it justice. 🙂

    I’m glad you all enjoyed the chicken. Your menu sounds really good. Let me know if you come up with a better name.
    I have another recipe for chicken that was named Stupid Chicken. I renamed it Sunday chicken. :>)

    Our family has the same Sunday after church meal every Sunday…roast beef. I buy a large rump roast and stick it in the oven at 9 am…totally frozen. I cook it at 300 degrees. When we get home at 1:30, the roast is perfectly done. I always get complimented that my roasts are moist.

    We also have sourdough rolls that I make the night before and let rise in the refrigerator. In the morning I shape them, put them in a 9×13 dish, and refrigerate again. When we get home from church, I hike the oven up to 375 and bake the rolls while cooking the mashed potatoes and peas. We sit down to eat 20 minutes after arriving home. It’s our favorite meal of the week!
