Bacon is hands down my family’s favorite food. I think they would eat it every day at every meal if I would let them. Sometimes I throw them a bone occasionally and let bacon steal the show at a meal other than breakfast. Check out this delicious Bacon Parmesan Baked Chicken. Really, it has it all…bacon and cheese! Plus it is a quick and easy baked chicken recipe that you can pull together in no time.
Pair it with the broccoli and potato suggested in the recipe or use the chicken to top of a caesar or mixed green salad for a filling and delicious summer time dinner that your entire family will enjoy.
