Eat For A Week, Episode 17: Last Flight for the Bird (remix)

The first family recipe I've decided to "remix" for this is one called Last Flight for the Bird. My grocery bill for this one was just shy of $22. I had to get everything but the rice.


large bowl
oven-save baking dish


4 chicken breasts
1 16 oz. packet of bacon
16 oz. potato leek soup
1 can condensed cheddar cheese soup
8 oz. swiss cheese, grated,
1 head of broccoli, chopped into bite-sized bits
6 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
about 3/4 Cup uncooked rice


Preheat oven to 375°.
Wrap each chicken breast in a slice of bacon then return them to the refrigerator until needed.
Chop remaining bacon into about 1" bits and cook in skillet until crispy.
In a large bowl combine rice, soups, garlic, broccoli, cooked bacon, and about 2/3 of the swiss cheese. *
Mix well.
Transfer mixture to an oven-save baking dish. Nestle the bacon-wrapped chicken into the dish
Top with remaining swiss cheese.
Cover with foil and bake in 375° oven for 45 minutes.
Remove foil and return to oven for 20-30 minutes or until top is golden brown.
Let cool 10-15 minutes before serving.

Music for this episode was "Breakfast of Champions" by The Hybiscus Journals.

* If I'd had it on hand, I would have included a couple tablespoons of spicy mustard in this mix.

This actually sounds a lot like another recipe she makes where she breads chicken and broils/bakes it and then makes a sauce with swiss cheese and mustard and serves the sauce over the chicken. Yum!!

I think hubby would dig this recipe a lot more than the original, as well. Sans broccoli, though. :o(
