Creamy Dutch oven chicken - made in the oven instead of over coals. A favorite chicken recipe!

Yes it’s true, the title of this chicken is a complete lie. It was probably originally made in a dutch oven, but I have never made it that way. I just bake it in a 9×13 dish. We continue to call it dutch oven chicken anyway. Hmmm, I hope I am not teaching my children that it is ok to deceive people. Great, now I have guilt. Dang.

Dutch oven chicken is a family friendly recipe that is always well received.

My good friend Sherie brought this dish when I had my last baby (four years ago, my how time flies!) It has been a favorite ever since. I don’t always have the bacon, but when I do use it, it adds a wonderful flavor to the dish. I’ve used the Costco real bacon crumbles in place of the bacon strips, and they work great!

I served this with a green salad, and we had enough leftovers for my husband and I to eat it for lunch the next day. So at my house, this makes 8 servings.
