This is kind of like the Smothered Chicken they used to have at Cracker Barrel, but SBD friendly. Hubby likes his with salsa on top. I like mine plain. Hope you like it too!

Chicken was dry and relatively unappetizing. I am not sure how to modify the recipe to make hte chicken more moist.

I thought this would be amazing but my chicken dried up in the oven. I thought the flavor combo sounded amazing, but was just disappointed with the chicken. Maybe next time i will put a little bit of broth in the casserole dish. I also crumbled the bacon which was a great idea.
