This is a little something special I came up with. It consists of cooked boneless chicken breasts smothered in bacon, mushrooms, artichokes, olives, and mushrooms in a creamy sauce. Serve over cooked penne pasta, if desired.

This recipe was amazing! Its not the healthiest of recipes but it tasted wonderful and my friends and I all agreed that it desevered 5 stars. I made only a couple slight changes: I cooked the chicken breasts in olive oil with Italian seasoning before cutting into pieces. I used herb and garlic feta cheese and sliced olives. The name of the recipe really should be Arti-Cheesy Chicken Pasta as the Penne pasta is not listed in the ingredients and should be. I used approximately 20oz. of Penne pasta. One of my friends recommend that I double the garlic next time. Serve with a side of green salad topped with balsamic vinaigrette. Read More

My cousin made this dish for us and all six of us loved it! A bit salty because of the bacon and soup. Also try using 1/2 of the cream or substitute milk for half of the cream because it is very rich. A very filling dish all by itself. Read More

This sauce was VERY good. I omitted the artichoke hearts because I don't like them. I used herb and garlic feta and turkey bacon as we don't eat red meat. Very awesome sauce I think you could probably use most any variation of things and it'd still come out wonderful. Next time I will probably use a little less feta and maybe some parmesan or something. Very yummy indeed. Read More

Wow this was really good its not very often that I find a recipe that my husband enjoys as much as I do. I love cooking and although this took quite a bit of time to prepare it was well worth the wait while it was simmering I added 1.5 Tablespoons of italian seasoning and some pepper. The recipe didn't say how to cook your chicken or whether or not to cut it up. I boiled my raw chicken breasts for 20 minutes and cut them into bite size pieces before adding into the recipe anyways this was great and anyone thinking about trying.... SHOULD.:) Read More

Yummy! I did lighten my version by subbing chicken broth for the cream soup and a little white wine and milk for the heavy cream. Wait to salt after adding feta as it can be pretty salty itself. Served over bowtie pasta -we were extremely happy!! Read More

This was very good but I made a few changes. Instead of artichoke hearts I put in broccoli florets and I used turkey bacon and half and half to cut out some of the fat. I served it over pasta. Very yummy. Read More

This is now my new favorite low carb dish. The flavor of the sauce is fantastic. Of course being a vegetarian I had to change it up. No bacon I used olive oil and bacon salt which is a vegetarian product to saute the mushrooms. I used the full 8 oz. of flavored feta since that's what was in the package. I used soy chicken strips instead of the chicken. I eliminated the olives yuck. I added a chopped onion and used frozen quartered artichokes instead of the marinated ones. The first time I made it I had some homemade low carb cream of mushroom soup in the fridge this time I had homemade cream of broccoli soup in the fridge. Both were equally as good. I put it over pasta for my husband and ate it without for myself. I gave it only 4 starts because I don't think I would have liked it with the bacon and olives even if I weren't a vegetarian. Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. Read More

Made this with a few revisions used turkey bacon instead of regular only 5 pieces (you may have to add 1 tbsp of Olive Oil or Butter for mushrooms) I also used Organic 1% milk instead of cream and added a tomato to the mix. I also added quite a bit of crushed red pepper. This is a yummy dish served over rice! Read More
