DIRECTIONS

  • Over medium heat, cook bacon until semi-crisp, reserving drippings.
  • Drain bacon on paper towels and crumble when cool.
  • Sauté sliced chicken in bacon drippings until no longer pink.
  • Remove from pan and set aside.
  • In the same skillet, add the butter and cook onion, peppers and garlic until just tender.
  • Stir in the flour and cook for 1 minute.
  • Add 3/4 cup of the broth, and the milk. Cook and stir until bubbly.
  • Stir in cheese and sour cream; then add the chicken and crumbled bacon to the sauce.
  • Reheat, stirring to melt cheese, but do no allow to boil to avoid separation. If the sauce is too thick, add the remaining 1/4 cup chicken broth and/or a little more milk.
  • Serve over cooked penne pasta and sprinkle with chopped green onions before serving.
