“A lightly cheesy, bacon-enhanced chicken meal that compliments a plate of bowtie pasta perfectly. Easy, quick and incredibly tasty!”

  1. Place the bacon into a large skillet over medium-high heat, and fry until crisp. Drain most of the grease, leaving enough to coat the bottom of the pan. Hold up the pieces of bacon with tongs, and use scissors to snip it into pieces, letting it fall back into the pan.
  2. Tear the ham into small pieces, and sprinkle them in with the bacon. Stir for a minute, then add the chicken pieces. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
  3. At the very end, reduce the heat to medium-low, and sprinkle some of the cheese to coat everything. Stir to melt into a sauce that should coat all of the meat. Sprinkle in the rest of the cheese, and cook until everything is coated and cheese has thickened slightly, about 1 minute.

Good idea but needs more. I added onion and peppers to the bacon and ham for a little flavore and it was deliceous



Just OK as listed. I had to make some modifications. There wasn't enough cheese for my family's taste, so I had to add way more than the recipe called for, then I had to add milk to that to make it saucy. I also sauteed the chicken in garlic and a bit of chicken broth for added flavor, eliminating the grease of the bacon, but scraping up the drippings from the pan instead so we got the bacon flavor. Also added some fresh broccoli, per another reviewer. Served over buttered noodles and with garlic breadsticks. I might make it again, with the changes.



This dish was wonderful! My son - who is a picky eater said it was one of the best dishes I've ever made. I had read the reviews and decided to change the type of cheese and used Montery Jack and Pepper Jack in place of the Cheddar, a 1/4 cup each. It melted so well - I will definitely make this again.
