    Pretty good! I used four chicken breasts, 3/4 cup broth, 1/2 lb bacon and the ratio was perfect. Made my own ranch seasoning instead of packaged and it still ended up a bit salty, so reduce the salt if you can. It was a big hit for adults and kids alike!

    Nice taste! I had to use 3 T of cornstarch and heat on saute to thicken the sauce. Definitely worth making again! Its a “sloppy joe” for chicken lovers!
    I used Lower Sodium precooked bacon to cut down on salt and grease.

    We loved this, modified slightly for what I had on hand. I used 5 frozen skinless boneless chicken thighs’ Manual 20 minutes. Had Smoked Gouda. It turned out pretty loose so I ate mine open face on bread. My husband actually ate in a sub roll but it was pretty messy. I may try it over pasta next time. I also used thick sliced bacon and I think I had more than half a pound. Next time I would remove more of the bacon grease before the rest of the cooking.
