Smothered Chicken

So this is actually partially a recipe from my family cookbook Frankensteined together with the way Ruby River Steakhouse makes their Smothered Chicken. My husband Brandon and I fell in love with the Ruby River Smothered Chicken back when we first got married. We could not find the recipe for it anywhere so we decided to put a few really close recipes together and It turned out even better than we had hoped.


  • Boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used chicken tenders in this.)

  • Bacon

  • Sliced mushrooms

  • Sliced green peppers

  • Sliced onions

  • Shredded Cheese

  • 1/4 Cup Honey

  • 1/4 Cup Mustard


Preheat oven to 350° to get it heated up. Start by cooking bacon in a pan. You will use this same pan to cook the chicken. After the bacon is cooked set it aside. We used maple smoked bacon and it gave it amazing flavor. 

Now thoroughly cook the chicken in the bacon drippings. This will give your chicken amazing flavor. I used chicken tenders instead of chicken brests because the portions are a better size for my smaller children. 

At the same time, you are cooking the chicken you will start sauteing sliced onion, sliced green pepper, and mushroom in butter. You can also salt and pepper it to taste.

When the chicken is cooked and the veggies are all sauted you can move on to the next step.

To make the honey mustard glaze you will heat the honey and mustard in a pan on medium heat until the two ingredients mix. 

Place chicken on a baking sheet. Now drizzle the honey mustard glaze over the chicken.

Now top chicken with the sauted veggies, and the bacon you cooked earlier.  

Top with cheese and put in the oven at 350° for 10 min until it is warmed through and the cheese is melted.

Take out of the oven and serve. The flavors of the chicken, bacon, honey mustard glaze, and veggies are amazing. I hope you get a chance to make this. It is so yummy and it smells as good as it tastes. Enjoy! Let me know how you like it in the comments below.
