Simply put, did you read the part where I say that it has bacon. Bacon! Just work word gets me ready for this one.
But really, there are a lot of other great things you’ll love about the recipe. Second (Bacon is first) it’s perfect for that leftover chicken that you have stored in the fridge. In addition, it’s low carb, gluten-free and grain free. Oh, I forgot the part where it’s easy to prepare and a party for the tastebuds… because you know… bacon!
