Chicken Recipes: Chicken Casserole with Bacon and Glazed Carrots

Chicken is one of my favorite kind of meat. I have to admit, though, that the only part I like to cook with is the breast- skinless boneless breast. This is why you will only find chicken breast recipes in the poultry section but you can surely substitute them with thighs, wings, or a whole skinned chicken. How to be Super Mom's simple chicken recipes are always easy and mouthwatering. If you are a fan of bacon then this is the recipe for you. 

Preparation time: 20 minutes
