Halved the recipe for my husband and it was perfect. I used italian flavoured breadcrumbs, and real bacon. Processed bacon bits are not an option.
I didn't have savory or thyme so I used the salt and pepper and added some garlic powder to the Italian bread crumbs. We thought it could have used some other spices mixed into it too. I followed the rest of the recipe as written. My hubby thought the finished product was too salty. The rest of us enjoyed it.
Very tasty chicken, went over well with the family. I think it definitely needed some savory pan drippings to drizzle over the top. Next time I will provide that, because it was *just* this side of too dry.
