Next, browned the chicken in a skillet. This is optional, but I like it because it adds color to the chicken so it looks nice after you bake it.

If you are short on time, you can certainly just skip this step. This is really just personal preference.

Place in an oven safe baking dish. I really like to use my pyrex glassware.  Make sure you spray it first.

Add about 1 tablespoon of your favorite BBQ sauce to each breast. Just eye ball it and spread it around. You don’t have to be fancy here.

Chop up your bacon into pieces. This is completely optional, but I like it chopped because it makes it easier to eat when your chicken is done.

Now, get the kids involved during this part. Use your favorite kitchen scissors and let the kids cut the bacon. My boys loved helping me out.  You will want one piece of bacon per chicken breast.

Lay out the pieces of bacon out on the chicken breasts. Place as many as you want and feel free to overlap. Get the kids involved on here too.

Top with Shredded cheese. Colby-jack blend is delicious but you can use what you prefer. I also topped each breast with chopped jalapeños.

I love the extra heat but you can omit this if you do not.

Place everything back in the oven for 5 minutes until cheese melts nicely.

  1. Wow, this was so yummy. I definitely would make it again. i used pre cooked bacon and it was nice and crispy, and I also added the sharp cheddar cheese on top, like in the video.

  3. This was soooo delish and easy and quick for a dinner that looks and tastes like you spent a lot of time on it!! Next time I’ll use a little more bbq sauce. I precooked my bacon “just a little” prior to oven ?

  4. I’ve made this several times and used chopped turkey bacon as it was what I had on hand. Can out great! Have also used turkey bacon bits and though they were a bit chewy, it’s what I had and this recipe STILL came out great! I really like this recipe! It’s easy, inexpensive, you can modify it for your family tastes and IT’S GOOOD! Actually gonna make this tonight and use leftovers for work lunches this week. Thank you!!

  5. This recipe is delicious! We make it several times a month. My 5 year old asks for all the time! We don’t add the jalapenos, just because we don’t like spice. I double the recipe to have it for lunches and to top on salads. This is definitely one to try!!

  7. My kids love this too. We have it almost every single month and I love the idea of making extra for salads. I’m going to do that too.

    Made this last night for the two of us and we both really liked it and I´ve been asked to make it again already, the best thing about it was how easy it was to make, brilliant on nights when you are busy or simply too tired to cook. Thank you for sharing 🙂
