Great recipe. Like most, I modified it just slightly. Since I was cooking for several people, I made a large portion. I used a 9 x 12 baking dish and layered it with some home made pesto. I decided not to wrap the bacon around the chicken, nor did I roll or "fill" the chicken. Instead, I placed chicken tenderloins on top of the pesto and then spread additional pesto on top of the chicken (generous portion), followed by shredded parmesan cheese. Then I layered thick-sliced bacon on top of it all. I poured some extra lite virgin olive oil on top. I cooked it uncovered at 400 for about 30 minutes, then removed it from the oven and drained most of the oil that accumulated so that the bacon would crisp. I upped the oven temperature to 450 and cooked it for another 20 minutes. Came out great. Chicken was incredibly moist. I also cooked some fettuccine with pesto and placed the chicken on top of the fettuccine when serving the dish. A sure hit! Thanks for the recipe.
