  1. Heat up a tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until golden. Season with salt and pepper, and set aside.

  2. Using the same skillet, cook the bacon. When it starts to brown, add the mushrooms. When they are cooked, add the pickles. Add the wine and let it simmer until it evaporates.

  3. In a bowl, mix together the sour cream, cooking cream, and mustard. Add the mixture to the skillet.

  4. Add in the chicken and soft cheese wedges. Let it cook until the cheese is melted.

  5. Serve hot and enjoy!


  • When cooking chicken breasts, ensure they're of even thickness for uniform cooking.
  • Taste the sauce before returning the chicken to the pan. Adjust seasoning as needed with salt, pepper, or additional herbs or spices to balance flavors.
  • Once the chicken is added back to the pan, simmer it gently in the creamy sauce until the chicken is cooked through and the flavors meld together. Be careful not to overcook the chicken, as it can become tough and dry.
  • Consider garnishing with fresh herbs like parsley or chives for a pop of color and added freshness before serving.
