Monterey Chicken

It is hard to believe that Christmas has come and gone once again . . . I have felt like a stuffed turkey this past week with all of the amazing food that we have eaten! (It's fudge that draws me in and won't let me go!!!It didn't even seem like I spent that much time in the kitchen this year . . . but we still managed to enjoy the holiday season and grace our table with some favorites! Including Montery chicken . . . which I think I could eat just about every week! I love the color and how bright and fresh the ingredients are and how well they marry together . . . this is a good dish to eat when you want something hearty but not super heavy! This would also make a great pizza too! We love it at our house and I hope you will too!Monterrey Chicken

4 boneless, skinless Chicken Breasts
4 Bacon strips, cooked crisp and chopped (I used thick cut peppered bacon)
1 cup BBQ sauce
2 Roma Tomato's, diced
2 Green Onions, diced
1/3 cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded

Salt and pepper the chicken breasts and then bake in the oven for about 20 minute at 350 degrees. Smother the chicken breasts with BBQ Sauce on both sides and return to oven for about 3-5 minutes, until breasts are cooked through. Evenly top each chicken breast with the crisp bacon and cheese, broil for 30-60 seconds under the broiler to melt the cheese (optional). Top the chicken breasts with the chopped tomato and green onions. Enjoy!

I used Jenny's BBQ Sauce recipe. Click here to get it! It was soooo good!
