This delicious One Pan Creamy Chicken dish (adapted from here with slight adjustment) is very easy to cook as all you need to do is to dump all the ingredients together. The chicken meat is lightly pan-fried and the rich creamy sauce made up of bacon, onion and parmesan cheese is absolutely tasty. Besides adding baby spinach, you can opt to add broccoli and extra mushrooms. The total cooking time takes less than 20 minutes and it is ready to serve with crusty bread. It is also great with pasta as a one-dish meal or a quick meal.
