Preparation Time5 min
Cooking Time30 min
Five Ingredients or LessYes
- 8 ounces Bacon, cut into 1-inch pieces
- 1 1/4 pound Skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
- 1/2 cup Dry white wine
- 1 (10-1/2-ounce) Can Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or Campbell's® Healthy Request® Condensed Healthy Request® Cream of Mushroom Soup
Cook the bacon in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Remove the bacon from the skillet and drain on paper towel. Reserve 1 tablespoon drippings in the skillet.
Season the chicken. Heat the drippings in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat (make sure the skillet and drippings are hot before adding the chicken- it will jump-start the browning and prevent the chicken from sticking). Add the chicken and cook for at least 3 minutes before turning (if it doesn't turn easily give it another minute on that side) then cook until both sides are well browned. Remove the chicken from the skillet.
Add the wine to the skillet and heat to a boil, stirring to scrape up the browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Stir in the soup and heat to a boil.
Return the chicken and bacon to the skillet. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Season to taste.
