A Chicken Dish We're Programmed to Go Bananas For
Few foods have a smell that intoxicates the senses as much as bacon does). You can harness this power by incorporating the salty, smoky meat into an ooey, gooey casserole, which combines crisp, chopped bacon with sweet potatoes, sautéed chicken breasts seasoned with sage and thyme and a creamy white sauce. It's even better with a glass of sparkling wine (the bubbles are a lovely complement to salty, crunchy foods.)
