Pepper Jack cheese adds extra warmth to this golden brown chicken topped with tender veggies and bacon. It cooks in no time, and you can vary the flavor by substituting different cheeses. Dawn Jones - Cedar Vale, Kansas

"This was great! I bake my bacon in the oven. Comes out nice flat and straight. Poured bacon grease into pan for the onions. Thinking I might bake the chicken next time. Have hubby on a low carb diet. Served with saut?ed zucchini and polenta with blue cheese. Yummy dinner!"

"I've been preparing this chicken for some time now and it is one of our very favorites. You can't go wrong with bacon and jack cheese with chicken. I even fixed it for our son and daughter in law and they loved it. Definitely a five star recipe."
