Farmer's Market Chicken

The key to this aromatic dish is fresh, plump tomatoes. The right tomatoes will result in a dish with tender chicken, meaty mushrooms, and a taste that will give you pleasant dreams! I used sharp garlic cheddar cheese from the market, but sharp cheddar will also do.
  • 2 large chicken breasts, skinned and boned
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 medium tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 large Portabella mushroom, sliced
  • 1/4 c. sliced black olives
  • 4 slices of hickory-smoked bacon, cooked
  • 1 c. shredded sharp cheese

Place the chicken breasts in a small roasting pan. Spread the minced garlic over the breasts and layer the remaining ingredients over the chicken in the following order:

  • onion slices
  • tomato slices
  • Portabella slices
  • sliced olives
  • onion slices
  • tomato slices
  • bacon slices
  • shredded cheese

Cover the roasting pan and cook for 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

  • Yields: 2 servings
  • Preparation Time: 45 minutes
