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.
