Cooking With Sodium

My dad is away for the night so we made it our goal to have a super salty meal for dinner.
This is probably the most unhealthy main course you will ever hear of.

Are you ready?
Chicken. Bacon. Blue cheese. Awesome.

Chicken breasts (trim the fat and tenderize with one of those fun hammer things)
Blue cheese dressing

First, fry and crumble the bacon - try not to "test" too many pieces because you really want it on the chicken, too.

Next, place the chicken in the pan with a tiny bit of bacon grease, toss in some chopped onions, salt and pepper, and fry until cooked. I covered the pan for a bit to help steam the onions.

When the chicken is done, put it in a separate dish. Turn the stove off and, in the still warm pan, mix in some blue cheese into the bacon grease and onions (Obviously you don't want too much bacon grease in the pan, but having a little bit in there makes the sauce even more awesome). Pour the sauce over the chicken and top with bacon. I still had some time before I was serving my meal, so I placed mine in the oven at 350 for five or ten minutes.

Pair your chicken with something healthy (we had spinach) to ease your conscience and enjoy!


P.S. I decided today that I wanted to make chicken with blue cheese and bacon, but I didn't have a recipe. I looked on Google and found this one and this one, and used them as inspiration, but I mostly made up this recipe.
