I have made this dish over the years with a couple variations. One way is to wrap one or two slices of dried beef around the chicken breast, then wrap a couple of slices of partially cooked bacon around that. I've also pounded the breasts and rolled them with the dried beef, wrapped the rolls with bacon and then browned them to crisp the bacon before baking in sour cream mixture. If I want to be lazy, I'll wrap the chicken in the bacon brown to crisp and then finely chop a few slices of the dried beef and mix it into the sour cream soup mix. With all methods I always make extra sauce and always add sliced fresh mushrooms and a bit of sherry.This is really one of our favorite recipes. I'm not sure that I'd like it with the whole dried beef slices underneath it all. I think the beef needs to be more incorporated into the dish.


I've been preparing this recipie for many years in my crockpot. I think it's the very best way to do it. When it's done the chicken falls apart from being cooked so long. The flavour is amazing, and it reheats wonderfully for the next few days. (Assuming there is any left!) I have tried the variations with low fat substitutions and sound it always tastes pretty much the same... always delicious. When done in the crockpot, just create layers of the chicken wrapped with bacon, dried beef, and soup mixture. I also like to top it off with a few fresh mushrooms near the end of the cooking process.


Thanks for "exposing" what my husband used to refer to as his grandmother's secret recipe! I have loved this ever since he made it for me the first time, and I like being able to make it myself now. Our ingredients are basically the same, but the assembly is a little different. Instead of dried beef, we use the inexpensive thin sandwich beef (Carl Buddig brand in our area). I have never felt the recipe is overly salty, so the luncheon meat must help with this. In addition, I use chicken breast tenderloins instead of the whole breast. For assembly, we wrap 2 slices of the beef around the chicken tenderloin, then wrap the bacon around it, then pour the sour cream/soup over the top of the assembled pieces.
