A lightly cheesy, bacon-enhanced chicken meal that compliments a plate of bowtie pasta perfectly. Easy, quick and incredibly tasty!

Directions

  • Place the bacon into a large skillet over medium-high heat, and fry until crisp. Drain most of the grease, leaving enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Hold up the pieces of bacon with tongs, and use scissors to snip it into pieces, letting it fall back into the pan.

  • Tear the ham into small pieces, and sprinkle them in with the bacon. Stir for a minute, then add the chicken pieces. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.

  • At the very end, reduce the heat to medium-low, and sprinkle some of the cheese to coat everything. Stir to melt into a sauce that should coat all of the meat. Sprinkle in the rest of the cheese, and cook until everything is coated and cheese has thickened slightly, about 1 minute.

This dish was wonderful! My son - who is a picky eater said it was one of the best dishes I've ever made. I had read the reviews and decided to change the type of cheese and used Montery Jack and Pepper Jack in place of the Cheddar a 1/4 cup each. It melted so well - I will definitely make this again.

This turned out kind of dry and didn't have a lot of flavor--won't make again. Read More

Just OK as listed. I had to make some modifications. There wasn't enough cheese for my family's taste so I had to add way more than the recipe called for then I had to add milk to that to make it saucy. I also sauteed the chicken in garlic and a bit of chicken broth for added flavor eliminating the grease of the bacon but scraping up the drippings from the pan instead so we got the bacon flavor. Also added some fresh broccoli per another reviewer. Served over buttered noodles and with garlic breadsticks. I might make it again with the changes. Read More

This was really good. I would have given it 5 stars but I had to add more cheese in order for the chicken to be "coated". I probably put over a cup of cheese in this. This recipe is great for those of us watching our carbs! We did not eat it over pasta. It was good by itself. Read More

Incredible!!!! My family loved this recipe. We put in a little more ham and bacon than called for and it made a great flavor. We served it over pasta yummy. My husband suggested making a cheese sauce for it rather than melt the cheese. We will try that next time! Read More

Three stars at best... This recipe was just boring. I steamed fresh broccoli and tosed it in before I added the cheese. Without the broccoli I think this would have been a complete bore. A little melted cheese and some bacon grease hardly constitutes a sauce. Read More

Your recipe comes to us from Merry Old England. It is an old English recipe. The first I heard of it was from the English TV show "Keeping up Appearances". Onslow the husband of Rose and the Brother-in-law of Hyacinth Bucket has often asked for a plate of "Bicon Bootee". The dish itself is a "crust-less" quiche. If you like this dish you might like to try Mini cheese bacon and noodle quiches. Leave it to the French to steel a humble English recipe jazz it up and call it "Quiche"! Read More

Great meal. I believe you should add scallions and garlic. It definitely adds to the taste. Also if you like cheese you'll need to add more Read More
