  1. Place chicken breasts between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound chicken with the smooth side of a meat mallet to 1/8-inch thickness.
  2. Transfer chicken to a large baking dish and add French dressing. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 2 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Remove chicken from the dressing and shake off excess. Reserve the remaining dressing.
  5. Lay chicken breasts on a flat surface and spread several banana pepper slices down the center. Roll chicken around the peppers. Wrap chicken with 2 slices bacon and secure with toothpicks. Arrange bacon-wrapped chicken in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Pour reserved dressing over chicken.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over chicken and continue baking until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 10 to 15 minutes more.

I liked this... I used peppered turkey bacon and a reduced fat cheese. The bacon and the sweetness of dressing was a nice combo and the creaminess of the cheese was delicious

I made this. It was delicious, however I tweaked it a little. Instead of French Dressing, I seasoned it and marinated it in Olive Oil and brown sugar. I also used Maple flavored bacon. Came out ...

oh my dear lord... this was too good! is a long process but is so worth it.

This was good, although I made some changes just based on what I had on hand. I used fresh banana peppers, after slicing small and nuking them for 3 minutes first. And I only used 8 oz shred...
