  • 1
    In 10-inch nonstick skillet, cook bacon over medium-high heat 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and chicken. Reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove chicken to plate; cover to keep warm.
  • 2
    Drain drippings, reserving bacon and garlic in skillet. Reduce heat to medium-low. Carefully stir in broth and whipping cream; cook and stir until hot. Using whisk, slowly stir in cream cheese and mustard until cheese is melted and sauce is smooth. Stir in chopped thyme. Cook about 3 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until sauce just starts to boil and is thickened.

    Serve sauce with chicken. Garnish with thyme sprigs.

Expert Tips

  • Cream cheese can curdle or scorch if it’s cooked too quickly or if the heat is too hot. For a creamy, smooth sauce, cook cream cheese over low heat and slowly incorporate broth, adding a tablespoon at a time.
  • Serve the chicken and sauce with cooked linguine or your favorite pasta.
