"This was great! I bake my bacon in the oven. Comes out nice flat and straight. Poured bacon grease into pan for the onions. Thinking I might bake the chicken next time. Have hubby on a low carb diet. Served with saut?ed zucchini and polenta with blue cheese. Yummy dinner!"

"A nice idea, but to salty. I have had a similar recipe where the chicken was seasoned with lemon-pepper rather than seasoning salt, but had no mushrooms. I liked the mushrooms so I think in future I'll combine the two."

"Wow!! Yum, yum, yum. Not the most figure friendly recipe but as an occasional indulgence this is to die for! I like switching it up between pepper jack and swiss cheese and they both are equally good. Other than that I stick to the recipe and its incredible. Thanks for sharing!"

"Whenever I have pepper jack, chicken, and bacon, the boyfriend requests this ever since the first time I made it 3 years ago. It is referred to only as "the chicken dish" but everyone knows what we're talking about! Absolutely delicious! I sometimes add some chicken/turkey stock so that there is some gravy and eat it over mashed potatoes."

"We really enjoyed this!!! We grilled the chicken instead of cooking it in a skillet and then topped it with the onions, bacon and cheeses and let it sit in a glass dish on the still-warm grill for a little while to melt the cheese. We used cheddar since we didn't have pepper jack and left out the mushrooms since most of the family doesn't like them. Oh, and we doubled the recipe - I can't wait for lunch!!!!"

"This was absolutely delicious! Made it for my boyfriend and his friend (college boys) and they loved it as well. Instead of real bacon I used Oscar Meyer microwavable bacon, which tasted great. I suggest using maybe 1/2 cup each onion and mushrooms though, because 1/4 cup doesn't seem to be enough."

"Wow! What in incredible recipe! Very simple and straight forward...quick and delectable. The aroma in the house while I prepared this had my family waiting like vultures when it was done! LOL. Will definetly make again. Could easily be doubled for more people and would be great to serve to guests as it is very impressive looking when served. I highly recommend this dish!"
