A delicious treat! The wrapped chicken breasts are tender and juicy with a surprise inside! Use boneless chicken breasts; whatever quantity you need. You can even make them in advance and freeze part or all of them for later use!

This was delicious. Living in an apartment I couldn't grill so I cooked in the oven at 350 for about 50 minutes. Well that was too long probably about 40 mins would work. I also followed another review that suggested frying the onions garlic and peppers first. It was delicious and easy enough to make. I will make again. Read More

I used turkey bacon as well as turkey sausage rather than pork sausage and bacon. It tasted great. This meal goes great with double baked potatoes. Read More

These were easy to make and delicious! I substituted turkey bacon and added some chopped bell peppers (simply because I had some on hand that needed to be used). I doubled the recipie to freeze them for lunches and they reheat wonderfully. Read More

Excellent recipe. In order to make it 4 chicken breasts I use 1 jalepeno a 1/2 cup onion and 8 slices of bacon. Everything else I leave the same. "Lil' Smokies" work well for the sausage. Read More

This was very good. I ended up baking in a 350 degree oven for 50 mins elevated on a rack and broiled for 5 mins to crisp up the bacon on top. The bacon was still softer than it would be on the grill I may make in the oven again but think it's best suited for grilling as written. The two bacon slices to wrap the breast secured it really well. I added cheese inside but it melted out: if you want cheese with it I'd suggest serving it shredded on top almost like on a baked potato. The slight issue I have is with the chopped peppers/garlic/onions I really feel the flavor and texture would improve if you give them a quick saute together and then put on. The bits are so protected by the bacon/chicken/sausage they crunch and taste like they are still raw. Thanks for sharing. Read More

This was amazing! All of my favorite flavors in one dish! The only thing I found was that it took me longer then 30 minutes to get the chicken cooked all of the way through. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
