Quoting 4kidz916:

We just finished dinner with this recipe.  It's a keeper.  I used chicken breast instead of thighs and I left out the bacon.  My son has already put in a request to have this as his birthday meal next year. 

 Awesome!  So glad it came out good....I'll put it on our menu soon, too!
