Reviews for Almond Bacon Chicken
"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,.There's a coupon for $1 off of any HarvestLand Product here: (They have really good organic chicken. =] )http://printablecouponsanddeals.com/2013/10/1-off-any-harvestland-product-2.html"
"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."
"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."
"I baked this at 350 for 25 minutes instead of microwaving. Worked out very well and nice flavor."
"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."
"We all loved it, even the kid that "doesn't like onions"! I used cream of celery soup and a lg TBSP of onion soup mix because I couldn't find cream of onion. I did in microwave, put almonds on and finished in oven 15 minutes while rolls cooked. Next time I would add a second piece of bacon!"
"can this be done in the oven? If so what temperature and for how long?Thanks"
"I would prefer to have this recipe done in the oven- Chicken in the micro is tough"
