I made this recipe to be fairly easy. I cut the time down by using a pre-cooked bacon from the grocery store. Also, Instead of a flour or bread crumb coating on the chicken. I thought why not create an asparagus sauce to go on top of this chicken dish. I also used chicken thighs. That kept the chicken very tender. It is absolutely delicious. This was a really huge hit in my home. It is also a low-carb recipe. I hope you all enjoy my recipe!
