Reviews for Bacon Chicken Alfredo
"This was such a great recipe! I didn't use as much spinach as the recipe called for, but I put enough in to look like the picture. My husband helped here and there and was impressed with how good and easy it was! I think next time I will cook the bacon ahead of time and save some drippings for the chicken just to cut down the prep time."
"This is amazing!!! Best recipe I've tried in a long time."
"Made it like the recipe, but did make my own alfredo sauce. Family loved it."
"I made this exactly by the recipe and I was kinda disappointed. The chicken didn't carry a flavor of its own just tasted like bacon. I don't know what happened but it didn't go over too big in our house."
"Absolutely perfect! The only I did differently was use my own homemade alfredo sauce."
"absolutely delicious! I make this with broccoli instead of spinach. I also make my own alfredo sauce."
"Yum!!! I got kids to eat spinach that hate spinach and they loved it. They even had seconds and thirds for some of them. I give this recipe five stars. It did not show up for me to click on it. Additionally, the dinner was easy and did not take too long."
"Made this for a high school track team pasta feed and it disappeared quickly....with lots of moms wanting the recipe!"

"Amazing! My husband and youngest don't like chicken Alfredo & this is now one of their favorite meals."
