Apple Bacon Baked Chicken Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

I think that the core of the recipe is really good. I just made the recipe and it came out pretty tasty. I didn't have any apples on hand and I hate onions, so I left them out. Used apple juice instead of cider. I really liked how the dish turned out. Chicken was really tender. Juice and cranberries added just enough sweetness. Bacon did better crisping up under the broiler, so I did broil it for about 3 minutes. Next time I might try using fresh or frozen cranberries and see if there is a major difference. I must say that you must like mustard for this dish. If you have a child or guest who doesn't like mustard, then they probably wouldn't like it. I'm thinking about trying this recipe with pork chops or pork tenderloin.

This recipe was pretty good. It had a good balance of sweet and savory. I added sweet potato and apple to the dish, but only half of one onion. Two onions seemed like a lot of onion. I did not use cranberries because I cannot get them where I live. So, instead of adding juice to the dish, I added extra home made apple sauce. It was pretty good. I would make it again.

Chicken turned out very favorful. Apples were too mushy though. There is no need to soak the cranberries for hours - I started soaking them as I cooked the bacon and had it all in the oven 20 minutes later, and they were totally juicy when they came out.

This recipe is really, really good. I did make one big change, and that's using a cinnamon pear balsamic vinegar instead of mustard. That made it amazing--my kids and I ate it right up. I also used boneless, skinless thighs with the one chicken breast I had defrosted, and they cooked down to falling apart. Being out of applesauce, I just put some fresh apples in my Ninja and blended them up with the vinegar, and I think it was more than the half cup of applesauce, but it ended up being amazing. One other change I recommend: skip the bacon. You really don't need it, and it just doesn't add enough flavor to justify the cost.

The chicken was really tender but we thought there was too much mustard. The apples and bacon were both soggy too. Definitely wouldn't make again.
