5 stars for tasting GREAT without alot of ingredients!!!!! I followed the recipe as is. I did turn the broiler on for an extra few minutes to crisp the bacon to our preferences.... Thank you 07/10/05 Review 2 - Stil 5 Stars! I have made this so many times and have found the best way to make this by following the recipe exactly as is. Too much flavor is lost if you cook the bacon beforehand. I always turn on the broiler to brown the bacon during the last few minutes and turn it over to brown the other side, too.Read More

This dish was average. It was certainly easy to prepare. I used low fat; low sodium soup and didn't bother with leaving the bacon on to brown. There are better dishes out there.Read More

I precook my bacon so it is crispy and just top chicken with it, pour soup over, then milk and bake. So easy and can make with different soups for totally different flavors. So far I have used celery soup, mushroom, potato, and nacho cheese. Didn't care for it with the nacho cheese soup though. Season chicken first with pepper, garlic, poultry seasoning, whatever you like. I'd check the soup first to see if it's salty before adding any salt! Don't forget the bacon is pretty salty too. This is the first recipe I ever made from this site back in June, 2005 and my husband LOVES it, second to Burrito Pie.
When I asked my husband if I should make this one again, he gave me a look like he thought I was crazy and then emphatically said yes... for sure. This was easy easy to make. I used Turkey bacon instead of pork, and went with a cream of broccoli soup. I actually put 2 bacon strips around each piece of chicken, and pounded the chicken flat first. Beating up a piece of poultry is a great way to get some of my workday stress out. I will definately make this dish again.

Never thought I would give a "canned soup" recipe a five-star rating but this was deserving of it. We loved this. I pounded the chicken breasts and seasoned them with black pepper, garlic powder and rotisserie chicken seasoning. Only used two chicken breasts but kept the other amounts the same except I used two slices of bacon per breast (maple flavored). Served over white rice. I think using other seasonings is something that you have to do because it would be dull otherwise. Very simple to prepare.
This recipe was fantastic. My husband and kids went on and on about how good it was. I followed others suggestions about cooking the bacon first. I cooked it until it just started to get crisp. I removed the bacon and sauted some chopped onions in the bacon fat. I layed some larger pieces of bacon across the chicken and mixed smaller pieces and the onion in with the soup mixture. I also used more milk than what the recipe called for, but its really a matter of preference on how thick you want your gravy. YUMMY!!!
I pre cooked the bacon and I used cream of chicken with herbs canned soup instead of celery (had it on hand already). It turned out very well. You do have to season the meat otherwise it is very bland (per the advice of another reviewer). Thanks will be making again.
We LOVED this! I couldn't believe the regular taste of celery soup was changed so much by the flavour of the bacon! Excellent recipe. The only thing I would do differently is cut the chicken breasts in half (lengthwise) next time, as mine were quite thick and would have taken on more of the flavour of the sauce if thinner. My boyfriend also requested more bacon, so I may wrap each chicken 'half' in bacon next time.
Simple ingredients. Fabulous taste! I cut 2 chicken cutlets into strips, sprinkled them with pepper and garlic powder, poured the sauce as given in the recipe over all, then laid the bacon strips on top. After 30 minutes, I uncovered the dish and turned the heat up to 400. Served it over angel hair pasta. Yum!
This is one of the best chicken recipies I have ever made. The first time I made it, I didn't make enough!! My husband wanted seconds! The second time I made it, I add something. After the chicken had finished baking, I put a thin slice of cream cheese on top of each piece of chicken and stuck it under the broiler until brown and bubbley...even better!!!
Surprisingly good---and so easy. I added some minced garlic to the sauce. Wonderful as leftovers! A keeper!
We loved this easy chicken dish! My sister couldn't believe how great this little recipe was. I doubled this recipe, added an onion, precooked my bacon a wee bit, and seasoned my chicken with a little garlic salt and pepper. The chicken was so moist! Yummy! Yummy! Will make it again! Thanks for sharing.
This is a very good chicken recipe. We are watching our fat intake so I made it with 98% fat free soup and my husband still raved about it. This is definitely a "keeper".
Excellent. It's what I'm always looking for. Different flavor, quick and easy. Be SURE to cook the bacon almost all the way done BEFORE you put it on the chicken unless you like it soggy.
I used cream of mushroom soup and it made everything taste like a hot dog. I only had the mushroom soup on hand. It was not very good. I think that if I made it with the cream soup on the recipe it would have turned out better. kind of disappointed.
I thought this was a great recipe but I did cook and drain the bacon before throwing everything together. I just layed it over the chicken in the dish and it worked out fine. I also added minced green onions, thyme and rosemary and I served it with mashed potatos and buttered corn. The gravy was excellant. I'll make it again for a quick satisfying meal
Pretty good! I used the Fully Cooked bacon and seasoned the chicken breast with ground garlic and black pepper. I forgot to cover the pan with foil for the 1st 15min and it still turned out well. I served it over brown rice with green beans.
My family really enjoyed this dish. I made it with cream of chicken and mashed potatoes and it was all the rave!!!
Okay, okay, okay I used ham instead of bacon. I didn't see it would make that much difference - especially after tasting. It looked pretty discusting, but the flavor wasn't as bad as it looked. :l :/ One of those obvious "pour soup over the chicken" type dinners.
Great recipe! I did do a few things different. 1) I added salt, pepper, and a garlic and herb seasoning mix to the chicken. 2) I baked the chicken for 20 minutes (at 375) and then pan cooked it the rest of the way. That way the chicken browned and the bacon crisped up a little bit. I baked it first, so that the bacon would actually stick to the chicken. This was a great dish, with a lot of flavor! I will make this again.
This gets 4 stars because of how easy it is to make. I have tried pre-frying the bacon and turning the broiler on for the last 10 minutes or so to brown it and I have to say I prefer the taste of the original recipe. Too much bacon flavour is lost by pre-frying it. A lot of taste for not a lot of work.
My husband and I loved this receipe. One suggestion: cook the bacon some before you wrap it around the chicken. I wanted to eat the bacon with the chicken, but it did not quite cook all the way. The chicken sure was tender and had an excellent taste though.
Did I follow the same recipe as everyone else? People are raving about this dish and I thought it was "okay" at absolute best. I browned the bacon a little like everyone recommended. If you do this, render as much fat as you can because the way you put it in the oven is the way it will come out. I used frozen veggies with it like another user, which I do NOT recommend unless you LOVE canned veggies because that's what they come out like: overcooked, mushy, and tasteless. Now, the recipe itself sounded good and simple. I just was not impressed at all, and I don't think I'm picky. It didn't have much flavor, even with a very flavorful bacon that I love. And adding only 1/4c. milk to the condensed milk led to a very thick, heavy sauce that I did not find pleasing at all. Sorry, I would not make this again at all.
I made this without the celery soup. Instead, I used cream of mushroom and used pre-cooked bacon and crumbled it on top. It tasted pretty good and was easy for a weekday meal.
This was really very easy and tasty.
This recipe quickly became a family favorite. I loved how quick and easy it was, and the entire family (including 4 picky little ones) loved the taste. I used half a slice of bacon for each piece of chicken, and added more cream of celery soup to make more gravy. We served ours over rice and absolutely loved it...having it again tonight!
My husband and I liked it, but definitely cook the bacon first or at least partially. I used 2 pieces per breast. Also added cheddar cheese when I removed the foil for the last 15 minutes.
Not much taste. Bacon didnt cook.
Yummy, yummy, yummy!!!! I opted to sautee the bacon wrapped chicken with a light spray of canola in a pan. Then, proceeded with the recipe. My family loved it over brown rice.
I was a little worried about trying this meal, as my husband is very fussy...He LOVED it!! I read the reviews first, and decided to season the chicken and brown the bacon first. I used a Thai Herb mix, some garlic and cracked black pepper, I also pounded the meat. I didn't 'cook' the bacon first, just heated it in the frypan really. I added corn and celery before putting the Cream of Celery soup mix on top, and I left it in the oven for an extra 15 mins on top of the 50 (35mins covered, 30 mins uncovered all up). I served this on a bed of mashed potato with green beans on the side. Yum!
Very good and easy to make. I enjoyed it and is great for my low carb lifestyle.
I made this for dinner tonight and my kids loved it. I did too. Listened to many recommendations to cook bacon first and to season the chicken. Great flavor. THANKS!
This recipe is very good! I had to give it 5 starts since it's so quick and simple to fix. I like it with cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup as well. I have tried adding a little fresh garlic and some sliced (canned) mushrooms and that turned out good as well. If you have larger breasts you may want to use extra bacon. We like this over rice, even my 1 and 2 year old liked it!! I will definitely make this again.
My family thought this recipe was ok but didn't like it well enough to make again. Grandma Judy
I changed this recipe quite a bit by taking ideas from other reviews and also using my own. I put the chicken in the pan then covered it with lots of pre cooked bacon. Then fried onions in butter, once they were clear I added 2 cans mushroom soup to the pan. When it was mixed together and creamy I poured over the chicken and bacon. To top it off I sliced fresh mushrooms on top. This was really delicious.
I've made this several times when having friends over and it's always a hit - no one believes how easy it is either!
I made this as per the recipe except I added an extra slice of bacon to each piece. It was ok. I found it to be rather bland tasteing. Not an item I will repeat.
I couldn't believe this simple dish was soooooooooo delicious!!!
Great recipe. The chicken was very tender (no knives required!) and it's a good idea to pre-cook the bacon before wrapping the chicken. I also topped the chicken with sauteed mushrooms and onions before pouring on the soup and cooking. My family loved this dish...including my VERY picky 3 year old.
Simple and good. I cooked the bacon first as many suggested. This is a great last minute what is for dinner choice.
Very tasty, and very EASY! I made it as written, and served it over buttered egg noodles.
This is a great recipe...quick, easy, and tastes very good. This is a great addition to my low carb diet!
My husband and I loved this recipe! I used 2 slices of bacon per chicken breast. I will definitely make this one again!!
My whole family just LOVED this reciepe! Very fast and easy! Bacon did not crisp up enough for my family. Placed pan under broiler for 10-15mins. This is now my families favorite chicken dinner.
Really easy to make Famly loved it. I did season my chicken with some chicken seasoning before baking. I also will fully cook the bacon next time. that's right there will be a next time. out
This was simple and very good. My whole family ate it. I don't like chicken very much and I liked it. I will make this again.
I took others advice and browned bacon a little beforehand. I added a bag of frozen vegetables (broccoli, red peppers, mushrooms, and onions) and used cream of mushroom soup. Served over rice. My family loved it. Chicken was very moist.We will make again and try different soups and vegetables.
Don't know what went wrong, bu mthis chicken was so-so in flavor, and the bacon didn't crisp at all. I won't be making this again.
this was REALLY good!
VERY TASTY, I USED THE CAMPBELLS CREAM OF CHIX WITH HERB SOUP INSTEAD OF THE CREAM OF CELERY AND ADDED GARLIC POWDER, AND ADDED MUSHROOMS.
I pre-cooked the bacon half way but after 45 minutes in the oven it was still chewy. I'd highly recommend cooking the bacon all the way. Chicken did stay moist. Not enough sauce to put on our rice.
My family really liked this recipe. The gravy has great flavor. I have made this a few times already and it's a winner.
Easy to make for a quick meal. Great flavour.
Delicious over rice. One of the best I've found so far.
Loved it! Soo easy to make and so yummy! Will be making this often! My family and friend agree! I did add some peper and garlic as well.
This was so yummy! Not only that it is so easy. Someone suggested frying bacon first but I think not because I think the juices from the bacon mix with the chicken and the soup and makes it yum yum. My husband and mother loved this and so did I. This tastes so gourmet and the thing is its so simple. I was looking for a recipe with chicken that was gourmet like but didnt call for twenty ingredients. This was definitely the chosen winner. I might use more soup and bacon in soup next time to have more gravy for potatoes cuz it is so good.
Very good and super simple to make. I made a couple of modifications. 1) Used Creame of Asparagus condensed soup 2) Used 150 ml of milk to keep the sauce a little thicker 3) Used 3 strips of Turkey Bacon for each piece of Chicken Served with Vermacheli noodles
Definitely cook the bacon a bit beforehand, but be sure not to overcook because it needs to be soft for wrapping the chicken. Easy recipe, good taste. Thanks, Kris.
this was just OK - very easy but not very tasty. Maybe better with cheese on top...3 stars for convenience.
This chicken turned out so much better than we had expected! It was so easy and tasted great!
We really enjoyed this. My 17 month old twins gobbled it up. The bacon browned well for me.
This is a hard one to rate for me. We all liked it but it wasn't wonderful. I gave it 4 stars because it's really easy and the chicken is really tender. The flavor is good as well but it just seems like there is something missing.
The bacon wrapped around the chicken adds a nice flavor and the soup dose make a nice gravy to go over potatoes. Putting this recipe together was very fast and easy!
Excellent as is or try it in a slow cooker -- simply place chicken in crock, pour other ingredients in, add bacon and stir. Cook on low for 8 - 10 hours. Fantastic! I serve the "gravy" over cooked egg noodles.
The bacon never really got crispy. The gravy was delicious over rice.
This is really good. I'd make it again!
This recipe was so easy and fast. My husband loved it! It was nice to make something different. It only to a minute to get it ready and throw in the oven. I highly recommend this to any busy mom.
My husband loved it so did my children, it is now a fav for dinner..
I love bacon and chicken so I thought this recipe would be great.. but it was so greasy it was awful! I'm sorry to be so negative about it It sounded delicious, but it wasn't at all.. maybe if you fry the bacon first and the put it on the chicken? I was very disappointed with this recipe.
I made this in the crockpot when I forgot to take something out of the freezer and had no clue what to make. Threw the frozen chicken breasts in and poured the soup over it. I don't like using milk in the crockpot except for at the end and I just left it out. I used bacon crumbles instead and threw those in there with a can of water and 2 chicken bouillon cubes. I didn't eat it immediately and took mine to work for later...it smelled awful but the chicken was incredibly tender and it was actually very good. Will make this again every once in awhile.
Not bad. Too much fat came out of the bacon and chicken breast though, which makes the sauce too greasy and not pleasant to look at. Chicken taste ok.
I tried this one because it had so many great reviews. I was not dissapointed. I did use turkey bacon for a low-fat alternative, and it came out great.
This was pretty good -- esp for how easy it was! I took some of the other reviewer's suggestions and lightly cooked the bacon first. My dish didn't turn out greasy at all, and the bacon was nice and crisp at the end! I don't know if I will use the cream of celery soup again. I think the taste would go better with cream of mushroom or cream of chicken, but it was still very good. I will definitely make this again -- especially on nights when time is tight! :-)
This recipe received thumbs-up from the men in my home. I used cream of chicken soup instead of celery, added some rosemary and used maple flavored bacon. The bacon was a bit thick, however, so if you like crunchy bacon I'd recommend using thin sliced. The chicken was juicy and flavorful with a hint of bacon flavor. Delicious. We'll definitely make again.
I used the wrong kind of chicken breasts, so I probably would have liked it more if I had the right kind.
Mom made this for Aunt Genia and said it was really very good!
This recipe was okay. I will make it again as a quick fix it meal. Also another can of cream of celery would have helped alot as it didn't have enough gravy.
This is a great recipe! Kris, you're a genius! I've made it twice, the first time I didn't grill the bacon, and the second time I did. It was good both times but better the second time when I grilled the bacon first. As well as making it nice and crispy, it seems to release more of the lovely bacon flavour into the gravy. YUM!!!!
quick, easy, tasty and everyone enjoyed it which is quite a feat.
What a wonderful fast and simple recipe
We really didn't like this receipe mostly because the bacon seemed to be boiled in the gravy. We couldn't seem to get our bacon to brown.
EASY TO MAKE AND GREAT FLAVOUR!
This recipe was tasty and easy to make. I added greek seasoning to the chicken and slightly cooked the bacon before wrapping the chicken. threw in some onions for flavor and it was wonderful. My family and guests all loved it.
Good recipe! We enjoyed it although it was a little on the greasy side.
Very tasty and easy to prepare. My bacon was not brown after the 15 minutes uncovered, so I turned my oven to broil at 450 and cooked another 10 minutes until the bacon browned. The sauce was delicious served over mashed potatoes. Hubby and 2 picky teenagers cleaned their plates!
I have very picky kids & they absolutely loved it. Very easy to make and is delicious.
This dish is my FAVORITE so far..Had it last night for dinner.First of all my hubby is a very picky eater, all he did the whole time he ate it was ..MMMM...took a bite MMMM all around the dinner table i heard MMMMMM. IT WAS FABULOUS!!!
Great and easy! This is the variation I did for what I had on-hand. Cream of Onion soup and real bacon bits (instead of bacon). Sprinkled bacon on chicken before topping with soup. Also, added some pepper, minced garlic, and a little minced onion. Was very pleased with results!
Excellent! My daughters loved it.
This is absolutely delicious and one of the best bits is its simplicity. I did it exactly as given and wouldn't change a thing. From now on this is one of our favourites.
This was pretty good stuff. But I honestly didn't see the point of the bacon. Despite seeing where one person thought it was overpowering, I could hardly taste it. (And that's even given that bacon has a pretty strong flavor and is salty.) So I just thought it was a waste for all the fat. Cooking the bacon first would just add prep time to an otherwise super-duper easy & quick recipe.
My whole family loved this recipe, even my man who hates bacon (he did give his bacon to me to eat but admitted it left a nice flavor). I turned my oven on broil for the last few minutes to make the bacon crispy but instead I burned it. Still gave the recipe 5 stars and I plan on trying again and again until I get it right because the recipe is GREAT!
This is a easy recipe. I chopped and fried bacon removed most of the drippings, then stirred in soup(cream of chicken) and milk plus some herbs. Poured over chicken and baked 30-40 minutes. It is thick you might want to add a little more milk.
I actually broil the bacon-wrapped chicken before baking the whole mixture, turning it once, to make sure that the bacon is crispy, and not soggy, when it's done. Other than that, this is a great recipe.
I thought this recipe was yummy. I did change one thing though...I replaced the Cream of celery soup for Chicken Dijon Condensed soup. It came out GREAT!
I did not enjoy this recipe very much. The soup did manage to keep the chicken very moist, but the flavor of the chicken was very bland. I would definitely recommend browning the bacon beforehand, as mine turned out limp and flavorless.
My family thought it lacked in flavor. Kind of bland tasting.
Very quick and easy to prepare. I used Cream of Chicken soup instead and it turned out great! I'll definitely make it again!!
I gave this four stars because my husband and son liked it so much. I personally would give it three stars. If I make it again, I would definitely brown the bacon a bit beforehand. It was very easy and something I will probably make again.
