Bacon & Cheddar Chicken
This is so delicious and so easy to make. Start to finish: 30 minutes.
- 4 bacon strips, chopped
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 oz. each)
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2/3 cup barbecue sauce, divided (We like Bull’s Eye)
- 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In an ovenproof skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp, stirring occasionally. Using slotted spoon, remove bacon to paper towels; reserve drippings.
Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In same pan, brown chicken in drippings over medium heat, 3-4 minutes per side.
Put chicken into a 11 x 7 casserole dish and brush with 1/3 cup of barbecue sauce. Transfer dish to oven and bake 8 minutes. Take out of oven and spoon the remaining sauce over the chicken; sprinkle with cheese and bacon. Bake until the cheese is melted and a thermometer reads 165 degrees, 4-6 minutes.
Makes 4 servings.
