  • 4 6-ounce boneless skinless chicken breasts 1.5 pounds
  • 1 tablespoon BBQ seasoning
  • ½ cup BBQ sauce
  • ½ cup shredded Monterrey jack cheese
  • 4 strips bacon cooked, drained and chopped


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a large baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Place the chicken breasts in the prepared baking dish. Season both sides of each breast with BBQ seasoning.
  • Coat the chicken breasts with BBQ sauce.
  • Place the chicken in the preheated oven and bake for 25 minutes or until it reaches 165 degrees internal temperature.
  • Remove the chicken from the oven and top with cheese and bacon. Bake for an additional 10 minutes, until cheese is melted.


If larger chicken breasts are used cook until they reach 165 degrees internal temperature.
Bacon should be cooked but not overly crisp. It will continue cooking in the oven.
