"Bacon is good with anything, but the almond really adds a lot to this dish!

I would have never thought to put almonds with chicken,.
There's a coupon for $1 off of any HarvestLand Product here: (They have really good organic chicken. =] )"

"This dish was tasty and my husband enjoyed it since it had bacon in it. I did have to use Lipton onion soup mix with cream of mushroom soup in lieu of Campbells onion soup since it was not available. I also baked it instead of using the microwave."

"I baked this dish, as suggested by others, and it was very tasty and moist. However, I would use fully cooked, crumbled bacon and simply mix it in with the soup next time. I also added mushrooms."

"Thanks so much for this easy and excellent recipe! I cooked it in the oven, though - boneless chicken breast halves take about 30 minutes max at 350. I browned the chicken quickly first and put the soup mixture in with the chicken when I put it in the oven. Will definitely add this to my list of recipes to do regularly."

"We all loved it, even the kid that "doesn't like onions"! I used cream of celery soup and a lg TBSP of onion soup mix because I couldn't find cream of onion. I did in microwave, put almonds on and finished in oven 15 minutes while rolls cooked. Next time I would add a second piece of bacon!"

"I would prefer to have this recipe done in the oven- chicken in the micro is tough"
