"We had this delicious chicken tonight and cleaned our plates. The only change was that I added salsa to the chicken instead of tomatoes. I didn't have chives so added sliced green onions. Yummy! We loved this recipe and will be having it again. I highly recommend this recipe.

"Very quick to put together. I double the recipe and make a couple without the BBQ sauce and everybody gets what they want. Great blend of flavors."

"Delicious, I've made this many times. I prefer to chop the bacon smaller when I put it on, and use fresh green onion so I can taste the onion more though."
