Chicken, Bacon and Asparagus

This was a wild idea dish stemming from the fact that I had asparagus that had to be eaten. I started off cooking some rice and knew I wanted chicken for dinner. So, I ended up throwing bacon into the mix for an unusual flavor combination that my husband absolutely loved.

Ingredients:

4 Chicken Breasts
12 Bacon Slices, cut into 3″ pieces
4 c Asparagus, cut into 3″ pieces
1 1/2 c Rice, uncooked

Instructions:

Cook rice according to directions. When done, set aside and keep warm. In the meantime. Add bacon to a large skillet and begin cooking. Add the chicken breasts on top of the bacon. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes turning the chicken and stirring the bacon occasionally. Once the bacon and chicken are nearly done, remove the cover and add the asparagus. Cook until the asparagus is tender. Serve with the rice.
