    Good flavor with the marinade, but the bacon was way undercooked! It’s a good thing I tried this recipe tonight- I was planning on preparing this for guests larger this week. I did follow the recipe except I baked the chicken in a Corningware dish to accommodate the delicious marinade. I definitely wouldn’t say it made a sauce.
    I’m open to suggestions!

    This recipe was so delicious. You are one of my favorite go to when i’m “in a pinch” :). I saw that i had chicken and bacon available and immediately thought of you to get a recipe from.
    My husband and boys made sounds while eating that had me doing a double take from the kitchen, lol.
    The only one thing i did differently was leave the chicken in longer than usual d/t the bacon not being done. I was so scared that the chicken would dry out , but it didnt. I ended up cooking it for an hour and than at the last minute turned on the broiler to crisp up the bacon. Do you think i should turn up the heat to 400 degrees next time?

    1. Tamika, if you live at a high altitude, it will take longer for the food to cook but I wouldn’t think it should take that long. I would not increase the heat to 400ºF. Once the chicken reaches 165ºF internally, if the bacon is not done, I would turn on the broiler then to crisp the bacon. Hope this helps. I’m so glad your husband and boys loved it.
