"This dish was absolutely delicious. The only changes I made to the recipe was that I added 1-18 oz jar of chicken gravy, to make a richer sauce and I used real chopped bacon on top. My family is hooked! This will definitely be on our menu very often."

"This has been a go-to recipe in my home for years; a frequent request of my husband and even my super picky children gobble this up. I use center cut bacon and reduced fat cheese to cut some of the fat."

"So easy and tastes great. I didn't have green onions, so I substituted chopped red onion. I also had thin chicken breasts, which eliminated the necessity to flatten the chicken. We will have this dish often."
