Bacon Isn't Just For Breakfast Anymore
Cooking chicken breasts in bacon drippings adds a nice salty flavor to an already savory piece of meat. But add some apple cider and you've got a delicious dinner that gives home cookin' a new spin.
Searing chicken in a skillet over a medium flame on the stove keeps chicken nice and moist. It usually won't get over cooked and even if you simply sprinkle salt and pepper over it, it always has a delicious flavor. But if you add some spices, or cook the chicken in olive oil or drippings, you get a whole new flavor experience without adding a heavy gravy. This dish from Cooking Light does just that.
By cooking the breasts in bacon grease, the chicken takes on a delectable flavor you wouldn't expect. Then adding the shallots, chicken stock and apple cider to the same skillet, allow you to combine sweet and savory to create a mouthwatering experience straight from the farm.
