Creamy parmesan mushroom chicken with bacon is a dish that both the chicken lovers and the bacon lovers can enjoy! One nice thing about this dish is that you can cook it all in one skillet. And that makes clean up a whole lot easier. It is a nice looking dish, one that your family will love. I love the hint of garlic and the mushrooms that really bring out the flavor in creamy parmesan mushroom chicken with bacon. The bacon gives it a little color and the parsley as well. Otherwise it might be too much the same color. I like a little contrast. However, you can leave any of those things out that your family does not care for. I have been trying to get my family to eat more mushrooms, because I know that they are good for you.
Summer is going so fast. My husband and I decided that we had better use some of our Amusement Park tickets before our grandson went back to school. Last week our granddaughter was sick and so we didn’t go. Since school starts next week yesterday was the day. The only drawback was that my grand kids made grandma sick!:( I went anyway. I have one of those fun summer colds. What do you do for a cold. I have been taking extra vitamins and Echinacea. I am not sure that it has been helping, but I guess that is really isn’t hurting. I know that I don’t have the strongest immune system, but I can usually get away without getting a cold. Not this time. My nose is just like someone turned on the faucet. I know; TMI. I was really hoping that you can all give me the magic cure. No one has time for a summer cold. I know that this too shall pass, and I will be feeling like a million bucks soon.
We did have fun at the Amusement Park, and there were a lot of people there. We floated the lazy river and then the kids road some rides. I stayed with the baby while she was asleep. I sat on the bench and the other kids went off and rode some fun rides. I am always so thankful for benches and shade. If we didn’t have shade, we would all melt. I hope that you are all having a great summer and that this dish, creamy parmesan mushroom chicken with bacon makes your summer easier and less stressful. Enjoy!
