Ingredients

Are you making this? 
3/4 pound bacon; cut into 1 inch pieces
1 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 tablespoons sour cream
1/8 tablespoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
12 ounces skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 Eggs; beaten
1 cup dry bread crumbs
4 potatoes; peeled and cubed
1 sweet onion (such as Vidalia); chopped
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons sour cream

Original recipe makes 3 Servings

Servings  

Preparation

Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned but still soft. Reserve the bacon grease in the skillet, and cool the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Once cool, mix the bacon together with the feta cheese, 3 tablespoons of sour cream, oregano, and black pepper in a small bowl; set aside.

Lay a chicken breast flat onto your work surface. Use the tip of a sharp boning or paring knife to cut a 2-inch pocket in the chicken breast. Repeat with the remaining chicken breasts. Spoon the bacon mixture into the pockets. Pour the flour, egg, and bread crumbs into separate, shallow dishes. Gently press the chicken breasts into the flour to coat. Dip each into the beaten egg, then press into bread crumbs.

Reheat the bacon grease over medium heat. Brown the chicken breasts on both sides in the hot fat, about 2 minutes per side. Reserve the bacon grease in the pan. Place the breasts on a baking dish, and bake in the preheated oven until the chicken is no longer pink and the filling is hot, 20 to 25 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Meanwhile, place the potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain.

While the potatoes are boiling, cook the onion in the remaining bacon grease over medium heat until very tender and golden brown, about 10 minutes. Once the potatoes are done, mash together with the onion, butter, and remaining 3 tablespoons of sour cream. Serve the chicken breasts accompanied by the mashed potatoes.

Notes

It's always tempting to cook chicken longer, do NOT in this instance. Using 3, thick, boneless, skinless breasts, be sure to cook no more than the amount specified. (Nothing worse than overdone, dry chicken!)

Eh...not bad. Just a little bland for all the work that went into it.

This dish is great! I made it for a dinner party and it was a hit. The steps to this meal are not really difficult but just a bit tedious. The end result is way worth it! I will definitely be making again.

I made a friggin' mess of my kitchen making this, but it is DELICIOUS. If you're not all that seasoned in the kitchen (like me) this may be a bit difficult to make and takes a long time, but the meal itself is excellent.

As Drallen said, a little challenging for me as well for a beginner but I pulled it off!! It turned awesome!

Delicious and filling! A little challenging for me, but well worth it after I received such rave reviews from my family!

great, simple recipe. Add more condensed soup to have more moist chicken and extra gravy... serve with rice or pasta.. yum!

Good basic 'meat and potatoes' meal.

so good I did not want to share. I had extra feta/bacon/sour cream mix and mashed this into the potatoes. Awesome.
