This is excellent. I cook it on one side of the grill that is turned of while the other side is turned on. This helps avoid burning the bacon.

These were good. I wrapped the chicken breasts with two pieces of bacon. As well, I cooked the chicken over the indirect heat first and then put over the direct heat at the end to cook the bacon in order to insure that it wouldn't burn. I would make this again.

My family loved this recipe. I didn't have Italian dressing so I used a 5 herb dressing and it turned out wonderfully. We will be enjoying this dish for many more meals to come.

This is one of those meals that while you are eating you get excited about sharing it with others. I used chicken tenders each wrapped with a half to a full piece of bacon. I baked the chicken for about 20 min. (I am currently without a grill.) Than I blasted the bacon with the broiler. 5 min. per side. I am just sad I waited so long to try this recipe out.

Excellent!! Made as recipe follows. Baked it in the oven at 375* or twenty minutes, then broiled for five on each side. Thank you!

A deliciously different way to prepare chicken. My family really enjoyed this moist, tasty chicken.

My goal this year was to make one new recipe each week (if we don't like it, we quickly order a pizza). This recipe was a winner with my family.
