Please meet bacon wrapped Italian Chicken. You will not regret meeting. Trust me. No run to the grocery store and buy bacon and skinless, boneless chicken thighs.

Boneless Skinless Chicken Thighs and Bacon

I wrapped each chicken thigh with a slice of bacon. I cut a part one of the thighs to make two smaller pieces for the little people in my house.

Then place the chicken in the bottom of your crock pot. I of course use crock pot liners.

Then gather a few of the other ingredients you need for the sauce.

I used 1/2 cup of sour cream, but cream cheese could also be used, 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and one envelope of Itaian seasoning mix as well as 1/3 cup of flour.

Mix together completely.

Since I used cream of mushroom soup I added a handful of whole mushrooms to the crock pot.

I then spread the Italian seasoning mixture over the chicken and mushrooms.

I cooked on low for 4-6 hours.

I cooked up some pasta right before dinner time.

I spooned the chicken  over the pasta.

    They can be practical as well as delicious and beautiful.
    Should someone who works for themselves fail they will probably have to return to a day job.
    What theey look for and appreciate silently is love and affection.
