{Bacon Chicken Bake}

If you love bacon, you will love this recipe. My kids are picky eaters and they love this chicken. I do have to give the credit for this recipe to Angel Shannon, who cooks on Good Things Utah regularly.

What you need:

1/2 lb. bacon, cooked crisp/chopped fine (I buy the precooked bacon to save on time.)
1 Cup Season Breadcrumbs
3 Tablespoons Dried Minced Onion
6 Skinless Chicken Breasts, or about 12 Chicken Tenders
Ranch Dressing (optional)
1 Stick Butter, Melted
Salt, Pepper, and Garlic Powder to taste.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix bacon, breadcrumbs and dried onion flakes in a large bowl. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic powder, then dip in Ranch dressing. Coat chicken liberally with breadcrumb mixture and place on a foil lined jelly roll pan that has been lightly sprayed with cooking oil. Drizzle the butter over top of chicken, this is optional. I have done it both ways and it tastes great either way. Bake for 30 minutes. For a crispy crust place under broiler for about two minutes. If you don't use the butter the chicken is pretty crispy without the additional time under the broiler. Enjoy!

I'm really bummed I didn't get to try this because I was in the hospital. But... my sister-in-law, who was watching our boys that day did eat it. She loved it! She even asked me to get the recipe for her... she liked it so much! So, I sent her your blog.
