Cooking Instructions

1. Place bacon pieces into a 9 inch skillet. Turn heat to medium. Cook bacon until it is browned and crisp, stirring often. Remove bacon, leaving the fat behind in the skillet.

2. Turn heat down to medium low. Add onion and carrot to the pan; cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add mushrooms. Cook for about 10 more minutes, stirring often, or until vegetables are tender. Remove vegetables from the skillet.

3. Remove chicken from marinade, saving marinade. Add chicken to the skillet. Turn heat up to medium. Cook until chicken pieces are cooked through, about 5 minutes, stirring constantly.
