Creamy Chicken

Yet another recipe using some of my favourite ingredients.  It’s not like you can go wrong by combining, bacon, garlic, mushrooms, chicken and cream plus some other yummy ingredients, unless you are a vegetarian that is.  Then, sadly you are going to have to wait for my vegetarian chapter.
