About This Recipe

There’s something so wonderful about a rotisserie chicken. They are always cooked to tender and juicy perfection, they are readily available, and they make wonderful meals.

Of course, you can just slice up the chicken and serve it as-is, but why not take the meat from the bones and use it to make some fabulous recipes? I always use rotisserie chicken when I make chicken salads. And the meat is fabulous in casseroles too.

This recipe combines many of my favorite ingredients. It’s rich and flavorful and creamy with a fabulous crunch from the bacon. Chicken Blue Cheese Bacon Bake is pure comfort food. Enjoy every bite.
