    This is the second time I made these I liked them much better than the first time. The first time I used Italian seasoned breadcrumbs because I did not have plain breadcrumbs. I think it tasted a lot better the First time. I also found that dumping the dry mixture into a shallow pan such as a pie pan is best for dipping the mixture rather than shaking them in a plastic bag. I believe the first time I took them out of the oven after 15 minutes. This time I checked them at 15 minutes and they looked a bit under done to me. I left them in for a total of 20 that it had suggested in the directions and they became dry and we’re not nearly as good as the first time. I will try this again using the changes that I have made.

    was pretty great. honestly though, needs about 100 more ingredients lol. if i hadnt used progresso italian breadcrumbs it wouldnt have had any flavor. salt and pepper generously... yes... i also think flour needs to be added to the breading (crumbs, cheese, bacon) to make it stick better because it just kept falling off the chicken! But, overall, it tasted really good. i loved ir, hubby loved it. My fetus let me keep it down (because everything comes back up... everything) so it was a win in my house :)

    These were really good. However, I shredded the cheese instead of grating it finely and I think because of that it was hard to coat the chicken - it didn't want to stick. But I made it work and in the end (while a little soggy) the chicken was really good. Honestly even if it's not perfect, it's hard to smother chicken with bacon and cheese and not have it end up tasty.

    The bacon doesn't stay stuck on the chicken tenders when I cover them with the breading mix. I had to take the bacon bits and sprinkle them on top additionally afterwards. The recipe was very tasty though! Ate it with our favorite sauce and mashed potatoes.

    Very easy to make. I used ritz instead of bread crumbs gave it more of a buttery taste
    Kids loved this recipe!

    Good recipe. Kids loved it. I used the method of placing chicken in the bag with the toppings and shaking, however I still used my hands to put more toppings on as the chicken was not fully covered. I might try different bread crumbs to see if it coats better next time. Overall good recipe.

    Turned out pretty good. I couldn't get the coating to stick well, and think it could use some extra seasoning. Over all enjoyed it, and willl be making it again with some adjustments.

    These tenders are excellent! I fried up real bacon first and added garlic powder, onion powder, and pepper to the coating. I coated the tenders with flour prior to dipping in the egg to make sure the breading mixture stays on - always works! My husband said they were the best he has ever had! I will definitely make these again!

    They were very good but I would add some seasoning to them beyond the bacon and cheese I’m not sure what yet as I’ve not tried the recipe with any but I’m thinking onion powder, and maybe a pinch of cayenne and some paprika.

    I made this recipe and it was so good! Juicy on the inside and crunchy on the outside, but one thing I suggest is when ur put he chicken breast in the bag to coat it with the other ingredients it might not stick as well. So after I would take it out I would just sprinkle some of the mixed ingredients from the bag on top evenly.seemed to help coat it better,because the crumbs already stick to it.

    It was good needed a little more flavor. Maybe add ranch powder mix or some seasoning to spruce it up a little.

    Super easy. I would probably chop the cheese and bacon up into even finer pieces next time to get a better coating, but will make again for sure .
