ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 5 thick-cut bacon strips, diced
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 2 to 3 medium ripe pears, peeled and diced
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • 1/4 cup snipped chives

directions

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in oil on both sides for about 10 minutes or until juices run clear.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan, cook bacon until crisp. Drain, reserving 1 tablespoon drippings; set bacon aside.

Gradually stir broth into the drippings, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil. Boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Add pears; return to a boil. Boil, uncovered, for 5 minutes or until pears are tender.

Combine cornstarch and water until smooth; add the chives. Gradually stir into pear sauce; bring to a boil.

Cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened and bubbly. Stir in bacon. Serve over the chicken.
