Bacon Rosemary Chicken

The second I saw this over at Cassie Craves I knew I had to make it!!! She raved about it and she was sooo right. This is one of the best meals I have ever made. Gray and I both couldn't get over how perfect the flavors were and moist the chicken was! Tomorrow I am posting the perfect side for this recipe! Thanks Cassie for another winner!

2 to 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup flour
5 slices bacon (chopped)
1 medium onion (chopped)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 tbsp fresh rosemary (chopped)
1/8 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp butter
1 cup chicken broth

Fry bacon in a pan until crispy. Remove bacon leaving about 2 tablespoons of grease in the pan. Place flour in a bowl and coat the chicken. Add butter to the pan and heat over high. Once the butter has melted turn the temperature back down to medium high heat. Add chicken and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until brown. Remove chicken, place on a plate and cover. Reduce heat to medium. Saute onion with salt and pepper until the onions are tender. Add garlic, rosemary and red pepper. Cook for 30 seconds, do not let garlic burn. Add chicken broth and let thicken into a sauce, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the chicken and bacon back to the pan. Turn chicken at least once so it gets soaked in the sauce. Cook for 4 to 6 more minutes. Serve hot with sauce.
