  • Heat a large skillet to medium heat and fry bacon until crisp. Drain and pat dry with paper towels; set aside. In the same skillet, saute onion in bacon fat until tender. Add to bacon and set aside.

Just a quick note due to restrictions on using "name brands" the recipe as listed is a little misleading. I use a very popular soy based gourmet cooking sauce(that cannot be named) that is very close to teriyaki sauce (but more thicker) in this recipe. If you use regular soy sauce this recipe will be too salty. Happy Cooking - Danielle Read More

I'm only giving this recipe 3 stars not because it didn't taste GREAT but because of the saltiness of it. Even after reducing the bacon to 1/2 pound and using low sodium soy sauce I kept waking up all night after eating this with a really dry mouth. Strange it didn't taste all that salty but it is! Maybe I'm just sensitive to it. It really is a nice mix of flavors so if the sodium doesn't bother you - Go for it! Read More

This chicken dish turns out tender and succulent every time I make it. My husband ate THREE servings tonight. We love the savory bacon and rich blend of toppings. I prefer it to the "Anniversary Chicken I" recipe because it uses REAL bacon and white/yellow onion instead of green. Two suggestions: 1. It might not take 30 minutes to bake the chicken and you don't want to overdo and toughen this dish. 2. For those concerned about salt you can use low sodium bacon and low sodium stir fry sauce. Also just drizzle the sauces on (you won't need a full cup of ranch dressing). Read More

Definately worth cooking again as the only complaint I got was in the color (everything is brown/beige). I assumed the soy sauce was supposed to be mixed with the ranch to make the 'cooking sauce' based on the order of the ingredients. From reading the other reviews about saltiness -- I didn't use all of the bacon (it seemed a bit excessive) and I didn't use 'lite' soy sauce ('lite' soy is usually saltier than dark superior soy which is more sweet/higher calories... look at the labels in the store) Read More

I did as others suggested: used teriyaki sauce instead of soy reduced the bacon by half chopped it up & used low sodium as well reduced the parmesan to 3/4 c. reduced the ranch by half and added 3/4 t. of minced garlic to the sauteed onions. Will make again and again. Thanks for the recipe and suggestions of others! Read More

Excellent dish....I used mild cheddar instead of parmesan used Bone-in chicken breast instead of boneless and less soy sauce than requested. I think adding mushrooms to the bacon/onion mixture would be good also. Read More

This is an okay recipe but after the rave reviews I was expecting something spectacular. It was good but it took a while to make and the clean-up was really messy. The end result was just not worth all the work. I don't mind working really hard over a dish but the results need to be pretty fabulous to jusify it!:) Read More

This recipe was great! My entire family loved it. I did do a few things different. 1)I used less soy sauce than called for. 2) I only used half the bacon called for - about 7 slices- and chopped the bacon up. 3) I added a half teaspoon minced garlic to the onion bacon mixture 4)I only had one boneless breast and six drumsticks -my cooking time increased to about an hour with the drumsticks - but they were absolutely fabulous! 5) I used a little less parmesan cheese - about 3/4 cup. Overall - my family loved this - and I think that the drumsticks turned out better than the boneless because they did not soak up as much of the salt in this dish. Read More

OK...so I have been making this dish for a while and I LOVE it. I do have to make a comment on some of the additional reviews - the reason the dish is SO salty is because you are all using soy sauce...you use stir fry sauce...which is in the same aisle at the store...try the recipe again with the correct sauce and I bet you'll just love it!!
