To make this a little healthier I left out the bacon and used veggie stock. I also played with the spices so I added some thyme and rosemary and a little pepper flake to give it a little kick.

This is a tasty recipe as is. I used chicken breasts instead of thighs. Other than that, made it as is. For those disappointed because it's not a breakfast recipe....it's called a skillet DINNER. You shouldn't leave a bad review because it was mistakenly, placed in a wrong category. Try it for dinner, you'll probably love it.

Very disappointed in this recipe. For one the finished product did not look like the picture. The amount of salt and pepper and bacon flavoring was over powering. The frying of the chicken made it heavy. I am used to using herbs for flavor. I did like the vegetable steaming technique. I am going to try this but tweek it, bake the chicken with garlic powder and pepper, eliminate the bacon and green onions. steam the asparagus, zuchinni and a chopped red pepper and add some greek oregano. make a light lemon butter sauce to pour over the top.

This recipe isn't so good since it is supposed to be asparagus+egg+toast=perfect breakfast recipe. I really wanted the breakfast recipe. I'm not much on chicken for breakfast. Good job BHG!

This is a wonderful summer meal... nice and light. In the summer, you can even get the vegetables right from your garden. I serve it with brown rice to complete the meal.

If you want the creamy look cook in condensed creamy chicken soup and broth. Add 1 can of soup and half of the chicken broth.if you cooked bacon along with chicken  for 12 minutes. After braising removed coked bacon to use as garnish. The point of the bacon is to season the chicken and pan. I seasoned chicken with paprika ,salt, and pepper- could use dill if you want....Try it out

This is very good, but like the above poster states, the sauce in reality looks nothing like the light, creamy sauce in the picture. You've browned chicken in bacon and added broth. So, you get brown sauce. I'd love to know how they made the sauce represented in the picture. ( I've started to remove my bacon before I add the broth, which allows it to crisp up. Otherwise, it stays 'wet' and soggy, and doesn't appear to be cooked.)

Very easy and delicious.  I used bone-in thighs with skin, bourbon cured thick slice bacon, and 2 portabella mushrooms that needed to be used. Oh and I did use yellow zucchini squash.  Delicious and will be making this again soon!!
