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.

A GREAT recipe !!! Very flavorful- Thanks Jaclyn, good job !!
Hello, I can’t have cream so do you think I could use unsweetened coconut milk?
Yes that or canned coconut cream should work well.
This was amazing! The only thing I changed was the heavy cream. I used Half & Half and reduced the amount to half of what was called for which in my opinion was perfect. I served this with creamy mashed potatoes topped with creamed corn. So good! What a great recipe. Definitely sharing it with my besties!
I made this last night. It was really good. My husband loved it. Two chicken breast made enough for us to have another meal plus a lunch for my husband. I am a dump cook who never measures but didn’t change any of the ingredients and it is definitely a keeper. It is not difficult to make. To make it even easier, I always have fried bacon bits in the freezer to use in salads, soups or whatever needs fresh bacon.
