This one pot chicken bacon mushroom Florentine is a huge hit in my house, even with our increasingly picky kids! It’s a great way to pack some protein and vegetables including mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and spinach into a hearty, filling meal. While we had a week of nice weather here in Minnesota, we’re back to chilly 40’s this week and I knew it would be the perfect time to make this for dinner.
One Pot Chicken Bacon Mushroom Florentine Recipe
One of my favorite things about this meal is that it only uses one pot for cooking. It does take a few steps and some prep, but nothing too crazy and I can usually have it on the table within 45 minutes from start to finish. You start by cooking the bacon and while the bacon is cooking you can thaw and cut up your chicken.
Once the bacon is done, you take it out and use the same pan with some added oil to cook the chicken. While the chicken is cooking, I chop the bacon into small pieces and also chop the sundried tomatoes and mushrooms. When the chicken is fully cooked, you’ll add in the mushrooms, sundried tomatoes, and garlic. Once the mushrooms are tender, add the flour and fully mix.
At this point you’ll add the broth, heavy cream, salt, pepper, and garlic powder to the pan. Whisk until this is incorporated and then bring to a low boil and add the noodles. Simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the noodles are soft. If it looks like the sauce isn’t cooking the noodles you can add a little milk or half and half, but I think the recipe has the perfect amount.
Once the noodles are fully cooked, add the bacon, parmesan cheese, and spinach to the pan and stir until the spinach is wilted. That’s all there is to it! This meal pairs great with caeser salad or a side of roasted sweet potatoes. Check out the full recipe below!

Hi there! I’m Amber, a 32 year old wife and mom of two from central Minnesota. I love to travel and to be outside with my kids anywhere the weather is warm! When I have a spare free moment, I love to read and scrapbook as well as binge-watch Netflix long after the kids are asleep. I drink too much Caribou Coffee and have a real sweet tooth but also try very hard to consume organic foods and use eco-friendly, fair trade products as much as possible. I also love socializing and sharing about my favorite products!
