After a very busy weekend, there isn’t much better than a warm, homecooked meal. This chicken was perfect!!! I paired it with mashed potatoes, butter beans & broccoli. It would also be delicious with sweet potatoes, a good salad and so much more! This is also amazing topped with pickled jalapenos.
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup Italian dressing
- 1/4 cup chopped bacon
- 1/2 cup shredded cheese
- 1/4 cup bbq sauce
- 1/2 onion, thinly sliced
On a cutting board, lay your chicken breasts out and cover with a layer of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet, pound the chicken so each price is even — this will help the chicken cook evenly. Marinate in Italian dressing for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
While the chicken is marinating, caramelize the onions in a sauté pan with olive oil and set aside. In the same sauté pan, cook the chicken so that it is brown on both sides. I also seasoned mine with a little Heffer Dust from Recteq. Once chicken is almost cooked thoroughly, add to a baking dish that has been coated with a nonstick spray.
Top chicken with caramelized onions, bacon, bbq sauce and cheese. Bake at 350° until the cheese is melted. ENJOY!
SIMPLE & SO GOOD!
