@Bob H - Serve the warm bacon on the side with the chicken. - RecipeLion Editors

Ok, what do you do with the "warm" bacon? Bob from Bend, Or.

My Mom was from the south, and taught me so save bacon drippings for fried chicken. I use half crisco and half bacon fat for frying, then put the chicken in a 300 degree oven. The gravy is the same except for the brandy.

I would like to know how you serve the bacon you are keeping warm. I save my bacon grease so wouldn't need to cook bacon if it isn't used in the recipe. Thanks.
