  1. Sharline, Love that sauce, it makes the chicken delicious.Easy to make and a nice dish to serve to guest. I cut the recipe in half and also used the lowfat mayonnaise. Dh loved it. Thanks for posting, this recipe is a keeper.
  2. So delicious! I tweaked the recipe a bit the second time and added sliced mushrooms with the bacon for the final step. The horseradish is my favorite element. Do yourself a favor and try this! Can be made healthier by using lite mayo, Daiya cheese, and "Facon" (vegan bacon) ... can't tell the difference I promise!
  3. A hit with the whole family! I added extra mayo to the sauce and threw some almonds on top. So yummy! Even the leftovers tasted GREAT!


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
