Company Chicken with Chipped Beef

 

The chicken is wrapped in bacon, placed on top of chopped chipped beef and then covered in a creamy sauce and sprinkled with almonds. This is a recipe you can find in lots of old church cookbooks. It makes a wonderful family dinner.

Ingredients needed:

  • a jar of chipped beef
  • boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • bacon
  • sour cream
  • condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • slivered almonds

The chicken is wonderfully tender and moist with lots of flavor from the chipped beef. The key to this recipe is cooking the chicken at 300 degrees for a full 2 hours. The lower oven temperature and a long cooking time makes the chicken get extra tender. I’ve even seen some recipes that call for cooking the casserole for 3 hours at 275 degrees.

I think a longer, slower cooking time works really well with both chicken and pork.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH CHICKEN AND SOUR CREAM BAKE:

RECIPE TIP:

Most chipped beef is really salty. I recommend soaking it in warm water for 5 to 10 minutes to remove some of the salt. Drain it and blot it dry with paper towels.

Whether it be a Sunday supper, Church Potluck, family meal, or a special occasion, this Company Chicken will get rave reviews.

Ingredients

  • 1 (4.5-ounce) jar chipped beef
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup

Instructions

  • Soak chipped beef in a bowl full of warm water for 5 minutes. Drain and blot dry with paper towels. Roughly chop the chipped beef and place in the bottom of an 8x12-inch baking dish.
  • Cut each chicken breast in half lengthwise so you have 2 long, skinny pieces for each one.
  • Wrap a piece of bacon around each one and place on topped of the chipped beef.
  • Whisk together sour cream and condensed cream of mushroom soup in a medium bowl.
    Pour over chicken. Sprinkle with almond slivers.
  • Bake uncovered in a 300 degree oven for 2 hours.

Notes

Soaking the chipped beef removes some of the salt so that the casserole isn't too salty.

  1. I made this primarily because I had everything on hand. I soaked the dried beef, as I always d when I make chipped beef on toast, and didn’t change a thing. It was delicious! Served it with brown rice and fresh green beans. Will put in the monthly rotation, maybe every other month, a lot of fat and calories, but so worth it!

  2. I had this recipe for years and lost it seems like as simple as it is to make I would have continued to make it. It is delicious and even with the virus and not shopping often, I have everything on hand. So thanks for a fantastic recipe
