Smothered Chicken

There's a little place in Speedway called Dawson's on Main. They make smothered chicken so delicious, that we had out rehearsal dinner there. The only problem is that we live around half an hour from said chicken. So, I decided to try to copy it. Here's what goes into it:

Chicken Breasts
Green Onion
Dijon Horseradish Sauce
Shredded Cheese Blend (Mine had cheddar, jack, and something else, but it's up to you)

I think that's all, so I started with the chicken. I grilled two chicken breasts until they were cooked through but not overdone, because I knew I was putting them in the oven. You can totally slice open the tops of the breasts because we're covering it all up later. I didn't do anything to the chicken this time, but I think next time I'll pound the chicken to make it a little thinner. It didn't take so long to cook, but it would have been easier to eat.

Cook the Bacon. If I have to tell you how to do this, I'm a little scared. Put it in a pan...

Then Saute the mushrooms in a little olive oil. They should get just a tiny bit brown.

Ahhh, the sauce. It is a delicious thing. I'd looked up a bunch of recipes to make it online. I was shopping for the ingredients, when I saw this:
I know, premade, who know's what's really in it, but it tastes great, and it was guaranteed to work out, whick the homemade sauce was not.

Break up the bacon and get your other ingrdients ready, it's time to stack.

Put the chicken in an oven safe pan, or on oven safe plates.

Layer on the dijon sauce, and don't be afraid. It's really good. I have no measurements at all, because I just kept putting it on there until it "felt right". I would suggest doing the same.

Then the bacon. I considered just slapping the whole strips on there, but I broke it up in the end so it would be easier to cook.

Then mushrooms. I really loved these mushrooms. I think they have had a little bacon grease in them, because I only used one pan, and I don't know how well I did draining it, but wow. I really piled those on.

Then green onions. I dont' know if the original recipe called for those, but boy I love them.

Top it all with cheese, and put it in the oven at 350 until the cheese is melted.
