This is a recipe that I love to fix when we have guests. I looks and tastes fancy, but is not too hard to fix. Definitely a keeper.
This was so easy to make and so good that I will definitely make this again. It looks like like it takes longer to make than it does.
Easy to make yet it looks like you spent a lot of time. Great for company. Delicious my husband loved it!
I love Caprese salad & this was a great idea, but tasteless. I would not make again.
This is the easiest chicken recipe I think I've run across in a while. It was very tasty. As another reader wrote, I minced some garlic and used Italian seasoning and smoked apple bacon. I didn't use salt or pre-cook the bacon, instead I cut each raw piece in half and criss-crossed it on the chicken. A company-worthy recipe!
