“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.”

I make this chicken all the time - my kids say it's their favorite! It is good, and very easy, but I recommend pre-cooking the bacon otherwise it's just too soggy. Every time I make it, I use about 1/2 to 3/4 of a bottle of BBQ sauce (and I use hickory instead of honey, because I always buy hickory smoked bacon and when I tried it with the honey BBQ sauce, it was nasty). I usually cook 2 slices of bacon per chicken breast and that's plenty enough. I bake the chicken in the BBQ sauce while cooking the bacon on the stove, and then add the bacon during the last 10 minutes or so of baking.

I chopped up bacon and onions and cooked until very brown. I mixed this into the barbeque sauce and then poured the sauce over the chicken. I covered with aluminum foil and it was done in 30 minutes. I added a piece of crispy bacon on top and some cheddar cheese which I let melt in the oven. It was very good! My boyfriend licked his plate clean!! We used KC Original BarBQ Sauce

I don't understand how this recipe got such good ratings. It is a very simple recipe and i followed it exactly. It was just plain horrible! It was like chicken swimming in a sea of hot barbeque sauce and bacon fat and the bacon did not get crispy - i even turned the broiler on for a few minutes. please don't waste your time and money on this one.
