Recipe by  

"This is so easy! I use it when I'm having people over for dinner because it can easily be doubled to feed a large gathering or dinner party. Once you put it in the oven, you can forget about it for 2 hours and move on to something else. It's always a huge hit with our guests! Serve over rice and enjoy!"

I've made this two times. The first time it was a bit salty for us. The second time, I used Healthy Request low sodium mushroom soup, and I rinsed and dried the chip beef in an attempt to take out some of the extra salt. The second time was the charm. This is a great recipe! Its presentation is pretty enough for guests, as Kathy stated.Everyone must try this, don't be put off by my comments of saltiness because its easy to fix.For company, I may be inclined to add a little white wine or sherry for a more exotic flavor.Thanks so much Kathy.

Holy sodium intake!!! Although this recipe sounded good, and it was extremely easy to prepare, it was probably the saltiest dish I've ever made. My fiance commented that he "felt like a deer at a salt-lick block". I agreed, and we went out to eat instead. In case you're not paying attention to my review, I'll say it aloud: WILL NOT BE MAKING THIS RECIPE AGAIN. EVER.

Words can't describe how great this is. I have made it several times. Once I doubled the amount of soup and sour cream and then served it over rice, GREAT!

Fantastic Recipe. I used 2 cans of the soup and a large container of sour cream, baked the bacon a bit first, then wrapped the chicken. Wonderful, and so flavorful!!

This recipe is so AWESOME!!! I was very skeptical at first, because I just wasn't sure how these ingredients mixed together would taste. But needing something different, I tried it and boy was I suprised! I didn't make any changes to the recipe and it was really, really good. My whole family loved it and even my 6 year old ate the chicken -- without ketchup -- and she hardly ever eats anything without ketchup. Thanks for such a great recipe. I will make it again and again!

This is so easy and yummy!

One of the best chicken recipes I've ever tried. The bacon and beef flavors make this tasta like chicken cordon bleu.

Wow -- this was surprisingly good, considering how darn easy it is! I loved the blend of flavors. Not really the healthiest of meals, but hey, you can't always have low-fat AND great-tasting. If you don't mind splurging on the bacon-wrapped chicken, make this -- it's GREAT! :)
