Justin's Favorite Elegant Chicken

I am guessing Justin likes this dish because it is not one, not two, but Three kinds of meat. If you are wondering what beef chips are, I have no idea and neither does Moi. Ha! But this sounds DE-licious!

4 whole boneless chicken breasts
4 oz. dried chipped beef, cut into about 1 inch pieces
1/2 pint sour cream
8 slices bacon
1 can cream of chicken, mushroom, or celery soup

Cut the breasts in half and wrap them in bacon. Rinse chipped beef
to remove some of the salt. Place 1/2 of the chipped beef in bottom
of 9x13 inch baking pan. Lay chicken breast halves on top. Layer
rest of chipped beef over chicken. Blend sour cream and soup and
pour over layers. Sprinkle with paprika. Cover with foil. Bake at
275 degrees for 3 hours or at 350 for 1 hour. It's best when slow-cooked,
but can be baked in 1 hour. You can also put it together ahead of time
and store in refrigerator until baking.

Chipped beef is the western PA version of shaved beef. It's much more common to see chipped ham, however.

I think it is the same as "sandwich steak" in grocery store meat sections.
