  • 4 chicken breasts
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 8 slices bacon, chopped
  • 16 oz.  chicken broth

Season chicken with salt and pepper; coat with flour. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook chicken on both sides just until browned. Remove from pot and set aside.

Cook bacon in the same pot until crisp. Drain off excess fat. Stir in broth, browned chicken and potatoes. Cover and cook for 20 minutes or until chicken and potatoes are cooked through.
