    Made this last night for supper along with Cheesy Potatoes 21334. It tasted sooooo good. Even my picky husband and 7 yr old were pleased. The only changes I made was that I omitted the tomatoes (we hate them), crumbled the bacon, and drained the sauce before adding the cheese to be melted. The sauce that I drained beforehand, we used to pour back over the chicken once we had cut it. Very good recipe! I will share it!

    This was so good and easy. I used garlic salt instead of regular salt. I used Kraft BBQ sauce which is great on chicken. I cut up pieces of Applewood Smoked Bacon and sauteed instead of frying strips. (I find it easier to cook bacon more evenly if you can stir it around, plus it seems to be less messy.) I also made sure to drain the liquid from the pan before I added the cheese and bacon to the chicken. Everything else I followed as instructed. Mine looked way different than the picture, but that's probably because I added a little more cheese, tomatoes and green onions than the recipe called for.

    Excellent, 5 stars all the way. DH & I really loved this. I used chicken tenders -- I just like their small size instead of chicken breasts -- and followed the recipe exactly, cutting back on the bacon & adding some sliced white onion on top when I put it in to bake. REALLY easy & so good -- a great, great weeknight meal! Thank you!!! :)
