    Very good. I only had one very large chicken breast, so I flattened it down with a mallet; laid bacon under the flattened chicken; laid the filling on top of the chicken and rolled the whole thing up. The bacon helps keeps the roll together. This made two nice portions. Served with Keto Spicy Baja Coleslaw from this site. Nice combo.

        How do you delete the onion from the recipe to get a different carb count?

        I’m definitely going to be making this on a regular basis. It’s very flavorful & the chicken is so moist & tender & it’s very easy to make. The only thing I did differently was I put in about 1/2 onion instead of a 1/4 & I baked it for 35 minutes. ❤️❤️❤️

          This dish was very easy to make and is now one of our favorites. The different flavors coming together have this tasting like something made by a top chef. I finely chopped the onion, tomato, and cilantro, and doubled the cilantro and lime zest.

                        Has anyone tried this in an air fryer?

                          I just made this using an air fryer. Preheat fryer 5 minutes or so at 370 degrees. Cook 10 minutes, turn and watch it for 10 minutes more or until done, watch closely for bacon to turn golden.
