Recipe: chicken and bacon stir fry

Ingredients to make a single, good sized serving
1 small chicken breast (or half a bigger one)
2 slices of lean back bacon (cut most of the fat off if you want).  I used smoked because I like it.
Half a yellow pepper (or red or orange)
1 medium sized mushroom
a very small glug of olive oil
a dollop of philly
a splash of dry white wine
a smidgeon of cream
chopped parsley

Slice the chicken, bacon, pepper and mushroom
Heat the oil and gently fry the bacon until it releases the fat.  Add the yellow pepper and gently saute.  Then ad the chicken and mushroom, turn the heat up and fry until the chicken is just cooked (it won't take long as the chicken is sliced).
Splash in the wine and bubble it away.  Then add the philly and cream and stir until; the sauce is bubbling and smooth.  Check for seasoning and add a little white pepper and some fresh chopped parsley.  I found no salt was needed as the bacon was sufficient.

You could serve with rice or pasta but I had it with broccoli from the garden and smooth, creamed mash.
