Hm yeah youre right there :( I could use the sausage which is a much stronger flavour and knock out the cheddar and bacon? :S :( oh im not sure I wanted something layery :(

Poor dear...my ex-wife had chicken legs. Made her partial to slacks. Well, just wear a nice sweater, and I'm sure no one will notice.

your bacon, chicken, shrimp and sausage bring up dreams of gumbo.....don't know how much you have on hand, though.......the cheese can be served with fruit later on........

wow, everyone wants you to cook a crazy meal... how about, frying the breasts (cut small) on med high in a little oil, seasoned with salt/ pepper and cajun seasoning. cook through.. warm a flour tortilla (10 sec microwave), add your favorite shredded cheese, medium salsa, then your chicken peices. Best lunch EVER!!!!!

You are always good for a laugh. Thank you.

So, Tanya, what did you end up doing with the chicken breasts? Something fabulous I hope.

Ooh, ooh...I took two boneless, skinless chicken breasts, one firmly but gently in each hand, last night, and...wrapped them in bacon! Used wooden toothpicks to keep the bacon in place, coated lightly with cracked pepper, the 4-color stuff, and baked on a rack until the chicken was 170f. and the bacon was crispy. Let set for about five minutes, and dressed with a stripe of dijon mustard and capers. I'm not eating grains lately, so no rice side (would've gone nicely, though), and a green salad. Tres yum.

I'm with Eric on this one. I'd keep it simple. But, having said that, If someone else took the time and effort to prepare many of these other combinations, I'd be at the front of the line to sample them.
