Red Apple Inn's Famous Breast of Chicken

Party Potpourri, is a wonderful Southern cookbook for anyone who loves to entertain!  It's a delightful guide with over 500 recipes and one that I refer to most frequently.  I bought it a while back when  #3 and me were visiting The Peabody Hotel in Memphis.  These scrumptious recipes have been compiled by The Junior League of Memphis, Inc. which "is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism and to improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable."

I was never a Jr Leaguer, but I do respect the integrity and accomplishments these ladies contribute to their communities. And, I especially love the Breast of Chicken, Eden Isle recipe I found in it the other day from Arkansas' own fine restaurant and lodge, The Red Apple Inn in Heber Springs. You must visit this quaint little town nestled in the beautiful Greers Ferry Lake area of Arkansas. Stay at the Inn and enjoy the golf, shopping, or lake amenities this exclusive resort has to offer. There is a dress code for the restaurant, so check first and if you don't get in the door...you can always make your own Breast of Chicken, Eden Isle style!

Breast of Chicken, Eden Isle
6 chicken breasts, boned
6 slices bacon
1 small jar of dried beef
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 1/2 cups of sour cream
1 8ounce package of cream cheese

Pepper, but do not salt the chicken breasts. Wrap a slice of bacon around each breast. Place layer of dried beef in bottom of baking dish.  Place the bacon wrapped breasts in the dish.  Cover with mixture of chicken soup, sour cream, and cream cheese.  Cover lightly with foil. Place in 325 degree oven for 2 hours.  When tender, remove foil and let brown slightly.  Serve on a bed of rice. Serves 6.

And by the way, you don't have to go all the way to Memphis these days to visit the Peabody and their twice-daily march of  famous ducks... the ducks are also at the Little Rock Peabody Hotel which is now in downtown Little Rock! We love to go for exotic fruity drinks at the cool bar and always to watch the ducks...you will too! And, hey little guy...don't get your feathers in an uproar...it's a chicken recipe!
