I usually increase 1-1/2 x honey mustard sauce & serve extra in a small pitcher at the table for those wishing to add sauce. Thanks daughter Gretchen for a deliciously different way to serve chicken!

Fry or bake 2 slices bacon per breast. Don't get too crispy. Bacon should still be flexible. Can be done ahead and refrigerated.  (I bake 400° 10 minutes on parchment paper / cookie sheet.

Recipe calls for shredded Colby- Monterrey Jack. (In a pinch, cheddar would probably work. Co-Jack works well however, and has a good flavor.)
