Bacon Dijon Chicken

Happy Monday!  Do you have a busy week ahead?  I know I do and this one skillet dinner is definately on the menu.  It comes together quick and is loaded with tons of flavor (& even a little green) making this a dish for everyone.  

One Pan and Done

I love one pan dishes.  It makes life so much easier, especially on those busy weeknights.  This dish is the perfect one dish meal.  You start with the chicken and then you fry up the bacon and then make the super rich dijon sauce that is loaded with tons and tons of flavor.  

The beauty of this dish is that the flavors build one upon another.  It starts with the chicken and then the bacon…everything really is better with bacon.  Once you add in the cream, mustard, spinach and cheese you have a very flavorful dish that was super easy to make.

Feeling a Little Fancy

This dish once all put together not only is delicious but it also looks a little fancy.  This quick one pan dish would be perfect for a dinner party or a special occasion dinner.  

I made this dish for a welcome home dinner and everyone loved.  They thought I had worked on it ALL DAY, little did they know… well I guess they will know now.  Of well, it was delicious and looked AMAZING!

Don’t forget the sides…

I love a good main dish but I am really all about the sides.  One of my favorite KETO sides is this Roasted Cauliflower Mash.  It is perfect with this dish, especially when you pour some of the delicious dijon sauce over the mash.  

I also love these Roasted Brussels Sprouts with this dish.  They add a nice smokiness to the dish that works really well with the richness of the dish.
