Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: BACON WRAPPED CHICKEN

Everyone who knows me knows I LOVE BACON!! Anything with bacon added is great in my book. 🙂 This wrapped chicken is savory and flavorful and surrounded in BACON. Did I mention how much I love bacon? Snicker. I do like the versatility of this recipe because, with just a tweak or two of cheese or vegetables, the flavor palate changes. With my new challenge of making meals that are Weight Watchers friendly, this is a good one…with the exception of the cheese. Zero points for chicken, veggies, and bacon. Win-win!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
