Bacon and Cheese Barbeque Chicken
Somehow I turn everything healthy into not so healthy! It's not on purpose I promise! I just think of things and they somehow all seem to add fat or calories! I had planned on making chicken the other night...plain barbeque chicken. Then I had the bright idea to idea bacon and cheese!
It was such a great idea! It was freakin delicious!
My husband and dad weren't so happy! They have been on a diet for a while now and I have been kind of ruining that for them. The chicken looked, smelled, and tasted too delicious for them not to try! My husband even went back for a second breast!
I plan on adding a few things next time to make this even better than it is (which seems impossible). But for now I'll share what I have so far :)
Bacon and Cheese Barbeque Chicken:
4 boneless chicken breasts
1 bottle Sweet Baby Rays Barbeque Sauce
4 pieces of thick cut bacon
Cover bottom of a 9 x 13 glass dish with barbeque sauce.
Place a piece of bacon down. Put a chicken breast in the middle so the chicken is laying in the center of a piece of bacon...making a t shape.
Coat chicken in barbeque sauce and poke with holes so the sauce with soak through chicken.
Put a slice of cheddar cheese on top of chicken then wrap entire breast with the bacon. I cut my cheese slices in half so the cheese would cover entire breast when melted.
Do this with the rest of the breasts.
Cook in oven on 350 for about 45 minutes.
Take out of the oven and check to make sure the chicken is done. Add a little more shredded cheddar cheese and barbeque if desired.
Place back in oven on broil. Let broil for about 5 -10 more minutes or until cheese is brown and bacon is crispy.
