    i love this recipe truly delicious  -  19 Jan 2011


    Simple and it works. Couple of tweaks - I split open the Chicken breasts and added some tasty cheese as a filling, other fillings are available, and I brushed the bacon with olive oil towards the end to keep it from drying out too much. Served it with a cheese and leek sauce and a baked potato.  -  17 Feb 2015
