Tasted amazing! Don’t know how to fix the issue with the skin of the chicken being stuck to the cookie sheet

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!

Super, duper yum-o-lishous chicken!!
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.

it was good. i added some ranch seasoning it made it so flavorful. i would make this again my family loved it.
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 .
Hi 21 Mar
Family loved it will make it again. My daughter said they tasted like aTGIF potato skin? Not sure about that but they were very good
It may have been just me, but the texture was a bit odd for us. Tender chicken, crunchy bacon, crispy cheese. The flavor was okay but I don't think we'll be making it again.
great! wonderful for leftovers to put into a salad

It was great. Everyone really enjoyed.
Turned out great! Baked to perfection and the chicken wasn’t dry and the flavor and smell was incredible!
I loved them, so tender and crispy

It turned out pretty well. Tasted good, and was easy to make. Didn’t batter up as thick as I hoped.

Mine didn't batter up as thick as the picture, maybe user error.

GREAT some one had said the breading wouldn't stick so I improvised and dipped my chicken in flower then in the egg and it worked great! I also dipped m chicken fingers in sour cream 👌🏼

This was delicious, i added more bacon bits on top once all the chicken was in the pan. I did not flip the chicken however, and when it was done I added some more cheese on top and let t melt a bit. So good and the hubby loved it too! Had no leftovers!

Hard to keep coating on but very tasty
Kim 17 Aug 2017
I felt like the coating didn't stick to the chicken as well as I would've liked- I had to press more on after I layer it out on the pan. It was super easy to make and my family scarfed it up!

Tasted good, Instead of dipping in egg I dipped them in butter with a slight bit of ranch.
