You can’t go wrong with chicken smothered in a creamy and delicious sauce.  But when you add bacon bits and mushrooms to it it takes it to a whole different delicious level.   Oh and let us not forget about the thyme.  Thyme is one of my favorite herbs to use in cooking and adds such amazing flavor.  Seriously this creamy sauce is out of this world.
