Rated 5 out of 5 by from Winner! Winner, winner - chicken dinner! This was a WOW dinner. Dear husband of mine can’t stop talking about what a great cook I am. (Tee-Hee!). This meal was from the Family Faves 10 Mral Kit. I modified the suggested side (Creamy Herb Pasta) by serving as a salad after adding some veg to it. We will DEFINITELY be making this again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Zesty Vidalia and Bacon Wrapped Chicken Recipe Great taste and easy to make. I did this in the oven and was very surprised how good this tasted. Hubby did even know it had garlic in it. Will make this and put in the freezer for quick summer meals after being on the lake all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely Amazing! I made this last night for dinner and it was absolutely amazing! The only thing I would do differently next time is to leave it in the oven a couple extra minutes to make the bacon a little bit more crunchy! Otherwise it was GREAT!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Yummy!!! Too much of the dressing can hinder the taste - too sweet in my opinion. However I tried to keep it lighter by using Turkey Bacon instead of regular so that may have been the issue. I love trying all of these bacon wrapped chicken recipe, and the only reason I gave it a 4 is because I am comparing it to another dish that was even better!
