Smothered BLT Chicken – Beautifully browned pan seared chicken breasts are blanketed with a flavorful sauce that’s generous with bacon, fresh tomatoes and spinach. There’s even cream and parmesan for a rich upgrade. It’s undeniably delicious!

While this may not be a traditional smothered chicken like you’ll find in the South, this is my idea of something even better!

It’s easy to prepare and it has the most delicious blend of fresh flavors. It’s like a BLT sandwich transformed into a crave-able chicken dish.

One change here however is that we do substitute spinach for the traditional lettuce, the “L” of BLT. This is because lettuce wouldn’t hold up well to cooking and doesn’t have near as much flavor as spinach. Soggy lettuce, no thanks.

I’m nearly certain this is one of those entrees that will wow your family and friends. That’s basically a given right? Because it includes bacon!

I recommend pairing this with pasta of sorts, we like this lemon orzo. Then also steamed asparagus is a nutritious and colorful pairing.
