"Tangy baked bacony chicken breasts. Just three ingredients prove that three IS a magic number! Make Bacon Chicken magic tonight. This recipe is a favorite among my family. We got it from my step-father, who was an awesome cook. Serve with macaroni and cheese and tater tots or French fries, if desired."
