Reviews for Bacon Mushroom Chicken
"Excellent company-worthy chicken. Simple, yet presents beautifully. Will definitely make again."
"A favorite with the kids and adults around here. dinner is ready in less than an hour."
"Has anyone tried this with cheddar cheese? That's what I have on hand, wondered if it might give it a good flavor. Sounds like a great recipe, can't wait to try this!"
"Really luv this recipe. Have made it numerous times, but never have rated it."
"It was delicious though I did things a bit different. I used fresh onion and sautéed that with the mushrooms in the bacon grease and after pouring the sauce over the chicken I topped it with the mushrooms and onions. It turned out amazing and my husband loved it!"
"This chicken was incredible! My husband and I both loved it, and it really wasn't that hard to make. I used fresh shredded parmesan instead of mozzarella and I think I prefer it that way. The parm really complemented the existing flavours and textures."
