Country Club Chicken is a Hit Here!

I seldom cook with canned soup these days, but it definitely has its place in this tasty dish!

This recipe with BACON caught my eye over at Cathy’s great blog, Wives with Knives.  Evidently, the recipe has been making Pinterest and blog rounds lately, and since Kathy said it was delicious ~ it will be making repeat performances at her house; I had to give it a try. 

It’s comfort food all the way.  A creamy sauce of bacon, mushrooms, white wine, cheese, apple and onions, smothering juicy chicken, in a large bowl filled with plenty of spaghetti ~ what’s not to like about this?

I am happy to say, this is absolutely scrummy and more than worthy of the effort to cook it.  I would not hesitate to serve it to company.  Country Club Chicken will be making repeat performances here also!  I hope you try it! 

Country Club Chicken


1 pound spaghetti
4 chicken breasts
1 large onion, diced
7 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 can cream of mushroom soup
4 or 5 slices bacon
1/4 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
2/3 cup sharp cheddar
1 apple (I used Granny Smith), peeled and diced
Pepper and salt, if desired


Cook bacon in skillet until crisp; set aside and crumble. Do not drain pan.
Season chicken with salt and pepper and brown on each side in same skillet you cooked the bacon in; place in casserole dish.
Cook the onion for 3 minutes. 
Add mushrooms and cook for an additional 3 minutes. 
Add the chopped apple and cook for another 3 minutes. 
Pour in the white wine and deglaze the pan.
Add the mushroom soup, bacon and grated cheese; mix well.
Season with pepper and salt, if desired.
Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

While chicken is baking, cook spaghetti according to package directions.
Place spaghetti in a large bowl.
Top with chicken and pour the sauce over all and serve.

It’s delicious and just as good leftover, if you are lucky enough to have any left!  And, it’s equally delicious served over mashed potatoes or rice!

  1. This is so retro and probably should be in my new book in progress, "Back in the Day."

  2. I don't use much canned soup either, but I think I may have a can hiding somewhere in the pantry for emergencies. This looks like a perfect reason to find it! It looks really good. :)

  3. This is a family pleasing meal! My husband will eat anything that has bacon in it. Thanks for sharing it, Pam!

  6. Hey Pam, this is definitely a comfort food!

  7. It sure does sound like it could be a favorite... and of course, it's got bacon, how could it really be bad??

  14. Hi,

    I have a quick question about your blog, do you think you could email me?


  15. I remember using canned soup in recipes many years ago. I've no recollection why or when ! It was a surprise ingredient and worked amazingly well.

    Must say, this sounds rather good.


I love eating chicken with my bare hands. It makes me want to snarl at people, even more than usual.
