Reviews for Bacon-Wrapped Chicken Spirals
"When I am in a hurry I use real bacon bits and sprinkle them in the middle and on top. LOTS of green chilies on top too! Messy but so good."
"We don't keep chilies in our home so I substituted green and red bell peppers and it's amazing. If I'm feeling adventurous I'll mix in green onions. I like that you can hide vegetables in it."
"Used 1 T. chopped jalapenos instead of green chilies for that extra "kick" we like. Very good!"
"Very good flavor! I thought it was a little messy to make, but still, I'd make it again."
"Another successful meal! My whole family enjoyed it."
"This was delicious! I used jalapenos because I didn't have chlies, but I'll definitely be experimenting with more filling again."
"I make this for dinner parties served with rice. Always a favorite."
