It was amazing! I used smoked bacon ends cooked in deep skillet, and made my cheese sauce directly in the pan to get all that bacon bit goodness. I too, added chilli flakes as well as hot sauce. Will be happy to make again.

It was delicious! More importantly my kids loved it! How could they not? Bacon cheese. Rice. Chicken. Bacon! Next time I'll make it with hot sauce (the girls didn't want it). Simple recipe for families. Even easy for a dad to make!

Very nice. I substituted the chili or hot-sauce with dried chili flakes in the cheese sauce.. (No hot-sauce/chili at home when I made it...) It was a hit and my burn the top of your mouth extremely hot put the toilette paper in the freezer partner loved it. Thanks for this one!

It was really good! We used fried rice with vegetables instead of white rice due to lack of time, but it was still tasted great. The only problem was that it was a little hard to follow the directions at first.
