    WOW...Is this tasty!!! This deliciously creative chicken dish has become a family favorite in our home!!! It is a wonderful combination of flavor... with the honey mustard barbeque sauce and bacon. The list of ingredients is fairly simple and they taste awsome together. It's also nice because it is quick to prepare. We love it!!! Our compliments to the chef...Thanks "Anthony"!!!  -  29 Sep 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is great but at 1000 cals and 36 grams of fat it is way too much for me so I lightened it up by using ff dressing, light shreaded mexican cheese, and a bag of Hormel bacon bits. Also no butter or breading or you can use egg white and bread crumbs and a little olive oil to brown chicken breast or just brown them in cooking spray. Still turned out great and with a lot less calories and fat. This tasted great and my family loved it. Thanks Anthony!  -  20 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yummy, although the times are incorrect. There is no way this takes 1hr 45 min. It takes about 45 min to brown the chicken, bacon, etc. and then 20 min in the oven. Should be approx 1 hr.  -  22 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
