Mushroom Thyme Chicken

This Mushroom Thyme Chicken is creamy and tender with a slight kick of bacon flavor 🙂 It turned out absolutely delicious, especially over some hot white rice made in my handy rice maker! Get yours, here! This is definitely a keeper recipe that we will be making often from now on. John loved it – so that’s always a plus!
