Slice the chicken breasts into two thin cuts.

Pound each chicken slice into 3/4-inch thick.

Add the bacon grease into the skillet and enough oil to submerge the chicken. Allow it to become hot.

Add the chicken and cook each side for 5 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove the chicken from the skillet onto a clean plate.

Remove the oil from the skillet, then add butter and allow it to melt.

Add flour and cook until it forms into a paste.

Add the half & half and broth. Stir until well mixed and thick.

Add the rest of the gravy ingredients. Stir until well mixed and allow it to boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for a few minutes.

Add a bit of the kitchen bouquet and stir until well blended.

Put the chicken back to the skillet and toss until well coated with the sauce.

Chop the bacon, then spread them over the chicken.

Cover the skillet and cook for about 10 minutes or until done.

Sprinkle parsley on top.

Serve with mashed potatoes and enjoy!
