3 medium slice Bacon
454 gm Chicken breast, boneless, skinless (cut into tenders)
1 dash Salt and pepper
1 dash Garlic powder
1 tbsp Butter, grass-fed, salted
171 gm Shiitake mushrooms, raw (or button mushrooms)
1/2 cup Chicken broth (stock), low sodium
1/2 cup Heavy whipping cream, 38% M.F.
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1 bunch Parsley, fresh (chopped; for garnish)


  1. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add three slices of bacon and cook until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and crumble then set aside.
  3. You should have about 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings remaining. (Note: If there isn’t about 1 tablespoon of bacon drippings, add 1 tablespoon butter to the pan before adding chicken). To the bacon drippings add in 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast tenders seasoned with salt, black pepper and garlic powder. Cook about 4 minutes on each side, until juices run clear and the chicken is cooked through.
  4. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
  5. Melt butter. Add in mushrooms and cook until tender.
  6. To the pan add chicken broth. Bring to a simmer, then add in heavy whipping cream. Stir to combine. Allow the sauce to simmer for 4-5 minutes to thicken, then add in finely grated parmesan cheese.
  7. Return chicken to pan. Add in crumbled bacon.
  8. Garnish with finely chopped parsley.
