"Bacon is good with anything, but the almond really adds a lot to this dish!

I would have never thought to put almonds with chicken,.

MY REVIEW

"This dish was tasty and my husband enjoyed it since it had bacon in it. I did have to use Lipton onion soup mix with cream of mushroom soup in lieu of Campbells onion soup since it was not available. I also baked it instead of using the microwave."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 15, 2011

"I baked this dish, as suggested by others, and it was very tasty and moist. However, I would use fully cooked, crumbled bacon and simply mix it in with the soup next time. I also added mushrooms."

MY REVIEW

"I baked this at 350 for 25 minutes instead of microwaving. Worked out very well and nice flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 1, 2009

"Thanks so much for this easy and excellent recipe! I cooked it in the oven, though - boneless chicken breast halves take about 30 minutes max at 350. I browned the chicken quickly first and put the soup mixture in with the chicken when I put it in the oven. Will definitely add this to my list of recipes to do regularly."
