Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
The great thing about this recipe is how fast it can be prepared. Not only can you use left over bacon/pancetta, slightly heated to "re-crisp". But, you can also use a store bought pre-roasted chicken. This significantly brings down your cooking time. Good for those busy days when you still want a filling meal.
