This is fabulously easy and quite a crowd pleaser! The paring of the salty bacon and sweet sugared onions is just perfect and plates beautifully. Thanks for sharing, this recipe has saved my "bacon"(naturally no pun intended), on several pop in guest occasions.
My husband told me this was a keeper after one bite. He said he definitely wants to see this for dinner again.
The sweet/salty/crunchy topping was delish!
Simple to make, too.
Next time I will flatten the chicken breasts out a bit to hold more of the yummy toppings.
This was easy and really good. I will make it with pork tenderloin next time. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms to the sauce and onions and it was good!! I used Maple bacon instead of regular to make it even more sweet.
So simple and so absolutely delicious! We truly enjoyed this recipe! It definitely met our seal of approval! Thanks for sharing!
My husband loved this, but then, who could resist bacon, cheese and carmelized onion with ANYTHING!?
I did add some fresh garlic, can't cook without it.
Definitely will be making this again, and loved the easy clean-up!
Made this for dinner last night and was a huge hit even with the kids. The combination of flavors is delicious! My step son said it is definitely a keeper!
I never log in to rate or review recipes, but I had to for this one - it was fantastic! One tip - I didn't use the whole onion because I'm not a huge onion fan... DON'T DO WHAT I DID! The caramelized onions are amazing and really pull the dish together.
this was very good, but I did make some changes. I marinated the chicken in a homemade bbq sauce (basically a mixture of a few things I had in the fridge) then put them on a grill pan, browned them and popped them in the oven while I cooked the bacon, caramelized the onions, sauteed some mushrooms, whipped up some mashed potatoes and some steamed broccoli and carrots (which I sauteed after steaming with some red bell peppers and onions). I layered the bacon,onions, mushrooms & cheese on the chicken and broiled for a minute till the cheese was melted, then topped with some of the marinade mixed with some honey mustard (I had put some marinade to the side before pouring on chicken). this was enjoyed by all...Will make again, although it's definitely not the healthiest way to make chicken breasts...
