Creamy One Pan Mustard Bacon Chicken

This recipe was from the Hormel website.  I took about 25 minutes to prepare and it was great for after work.   The flavors were amazing and Ted and I really enjoyed the sundried tomatoes.  This was a delicious meal and we will do it again!

Serves 4

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (approximately 4 to 6 ounces each)
