This is an easy dinner based on the Chicken Monterey served at Chili’s restaurant.

BBQ sauce, bacon, and cheese…how can you go wrong?

Ready in under 30 minutes!

Ingredients:

2 Tablespoons cooking oil (canola or vegetable)
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
½ cup prepared barbeque sauce
4 strips bacon, cooked
2 cups shredded cheddar Monterey jack cheese

Directions:

1.  Heat oil on a large skillet over medium heat.  Add chicken and cook, turning once, until the thickest part of the chicken is no longer pink, about 10-15 minutes.

2.  Reduce heat to low.  Pour barbeque sauce evenly over chicken breasts, turning to coat both sides.  Top each chicken breast with a piece of bacon.  Sprinkle evenly with cheese; cover until cheese is melted.

Serve with Garlic Mashed Potatoes, if desired

Makes 4 servings

  4. This sounds really good. I probably will skip the bacon...I know it would taste best that way, but I just don't normally keep it in the house. Thanks for an easy way to make a quick chicken dinner.

    1. I think it will be just as good without the bacon; throw cheese on anything and it's awesome!

      Tell me how it is after you try it :)
