Reviews forMonterey Chicken
"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.Volunteer Field Editor"
"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."
"My family really likes this. It is regular in our house."
"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."
"We all enjoyed this chicken and gave it high marks. It will definitely be a repeat dish for our family."
