To reduce the fat to 8 grams per serving, cook the bacon in the microwave, sandwiched between sheets of microwave-safe paper towels. Instead of browning the chicken and vegetables in the bacon drippings, coat the pan with nonstick cooking spray.
The flavors in the hearty one-dish meal will blend aas they sit. Make the recipe up to two days before serving and refrigerate it until needed. Reheat over low heat.
