Linda Coleman of Cedar Rapids, Iowa turns regular chicken into a savory dish with barbecue sauce, crisp bacon and melty cheese. It gets even better with a sprinkling of fresh tomatoes and green onions.

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 3 green onions, chopped
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  1. Cut bacon strips in half widthwise. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  2. Drain drippings from skillet; cook chicken in butter over medium heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 170°.
  3. Top each chicken breast with the barbecue sauce, green onions, tomato and two reserved bacon pieces; sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
