Loaded Bacon and cheese Chicken
This loaded bacon Chicken is the ultimate in flavor! It is loaded with sauteed onions, bacon and mushrooms and then topped with bacon gravy and cheese. What is not to love? I served this with mashed potatoes and used the bacon gravy that was over the chicken (so good!) The onions are optional but I honestly love them in this recipe. Yum!~
