A few months ago, I made this Creamy Brussels Sprouts Casserole and knew that I needed to make a recipe with a similar sauce with chicken.

The combination of coconut cream, paprika, nutritional yeast, and bacon was magic. A magic that needed to be replicated over and over.

And that sauce was the basis for this dairy-free bacon mushroom sauce chicken.

How to make this chicken with dairy-free bacon mushroom sauce:

To start, you have to microwave the bacon. I like to do this so that it is crispy. I also prefer to do it this way because sometimes bacon oil is overpowering in recipes.

So, you place the bacon in between two paper towels and microwave it on a microwave safe plate.

Then, cook the mushrooms in a pan for a few minutes, add the chicken and the garlic powder, onion powder, ginger, salt, and paprika.

After a few minutes of the mushrooms and chicken cooking, add the coconut aminos and cook for a bit longer.

Lastly, add the coconut cream, bacon, and nutritional yeast and let it simmer.

How to serve this bacon and mushroom sauce chicken:

I love making rice, coconut rice or broccoli rice and topping it in this Creamy Dairy-free Bacon and Mushroom Chicken. The rice absorbs the sauce and it all tastes SO good.

I also love making grilled veggies and topping it in this chicken as well.

I can see this chicken bacon mushroom recipe going well with potatoes too. YUM.
