If you’re craving bacon and you don’t have time to cook it or if you have dietary restrictions, simply freeze diced cooked bacon or crumble cooked bacon into bits. You could add some onion powder or minced fresh onion to the bacon and cheese too. There are a lot of different variations on this creamy chicken recipe
Make sure you track the time after slicing the bread because you want your chicken to be crispy on both sides. Chicken thighs can take longer to cook but breasts have less fat, so overcooking is less likely.
