This version features a mushroom-cream cheese sauce ladled over the meats.
INGREDIENTS (for 6 servings):
- 1 (4 pound) chicken, cut into pieces
- 1 (2 ounce) package smoked dried beef
- 12 thick slices bacon
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
Preheat oven to 275 degrees F (135 degrees C).
Tear dried beef into strips. Lay strips in the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Skin the raw chicken pieces and wrap 1 piece of bacon around each piece. Place all of the chicken pieces in the baking dish on top of the beef.
Mix the cream cheese, cream of mushroom soup and cream of celery soup together and pour mixture over the chicken. Bake in the preheated oven for 2 hours. Let cool 10 minutes and serve.
