This cheesy pierogi bake is taken to a whole new level with the irresistible flavor of bacon. Smoky bacon infuses a creamy cheese sauce and combines with herbs and spices to create an incredibly decadent cheese sauce that is perfect for this dish.
Peas, chicken, parmesan and bacon are an old favorite combination in my house. My 3 year old is about as picky as a child can be. But, she does love 3 green veggies; cucumbers, peas and broccoli. Go figure. So, I take the opportunity to add them in where ever I can. We found a love for peas and parmesan cheese. That fondness eventually grew into pasta dishes that added chicken and bacon with different cheese sauces. This flavor combination is always a huge hit.
In this fun twist I have used frozen pierogies and left over chicken to create a perfect weeknight dish. With only 15 minutes of active cook time, you can clean the kitchen, set the table and have plenty of time to enjoy dinner with your family. A mere 30 minutes from prep to plate makes this dinner a home run!
