      This was really a surprise. I don't know what I expected, but this turned out better! I chose this recipe because I'm on Atkins and it's very low carb. I used thin-sliced chicken breasts that probably equaled the 3 called for. I really don't like when recipes call for x number of chicken breasts, as they vary so widely in size, so I guess. Anyway, I deviated a bit from the recipe in that I used beef broth (that was all I had) and I lightly salted the chicken breasts during cooking. I used about 5 slices of bacon. The recipe didn't indicate what to do with the bacon, so I crumbled it. My DS pronounced it "yummy" and told me I should keep the recipe to make again, so that's a rave review from him.
