Recipe: Grilled Cheesy Barbecue Chicken


4 slices of bacon
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
Onion powder
Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama)
1 cup each cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup of homemade or commercial barbecue sauce
1/2 cup of chopped tomato
1 green onion, sliced


Preheat broiler, or heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking pan with foil and spray with non-stick spray; set aside. Cook bacon until cooked, but not too crisp; set aside. Cut chicken breasts in half lengthwise so that you have 8 flat pieces of chicken. Season both sides with the salt, pepper, onion powder and Cajun seasoning. Grill or pan sear chicken just until browned on both sides and transfer to the baking pan.

Coat each chicken breast with about 1 tablespoon of barbecue sauce. Cut cooked bacon strips in half and place one half onto each piece of chicken. Mix together the cheeses, and evenly divide among each piece of chicken. Place into a preheated 350 degree F oven, or under the broiler, just long enough until juices run clear, chicken is cooked through, and the cheese is melted. Remove, garnish with chopped tomato and sliced green onion, and serve immediately with a side salad, potatoes, or a vegetable and bread.

Note: These make great sandwiches. Remember, these are very thin chicken cutlets that will not take long to cook. Take care not to overcook or you will not be happy with the results. I used a thick cut applewood bacon.

Ok not healthy But good lol Every once and a while you got to treat yourself bad and good at the same time lol
