Monterey Chicken

ChickenMain Course

   I’ve been a slacker on posting new recipes. Sorry about that. Our lives have been pretty busy lately. In a good way, though. Today we signed for our new home! We are moving in this weekend, so life is about to get even more crazier 🙂

   I wanted to share this chicken recipe, before the holiday and moving chaos begins. This Monterey Chicken is so yummy, and it reminds me of my BFF, Teri. She used to order this whenever we’d eat at Chili’s restaurant, back in high school. She lives in Idaho now, and I miss her everyday. I’ve known her since the 4th grade, and I know we’ll be friends until were 90 🙂  Love you Ter! ♥

  Okay, back to the recipe. This delicious chicken is topped with barbecue sauce, colby-jack cheese, bacon, tomatoes and green onion. It is heaven on earth. Make it as soon as you can. It is super duper divine!

Monterey Chicken
Serves 4

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup colby-jack cheese, shredded
1 (14 ounce) can diced Rotel
1/4 cup chopped, cooked bacon
sliced green onions

Directions: Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound chicken to flatten. Season with pepper. Grill chicken in a skillet or grill pan, until no longer pink. (about 10-12 minutes) Then place cooked chicken on a foil-lined baking sheet.

Top each piece of chicken with 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, 1/4 cup cheese, 1/4 cup Rotel tomatoes, green onion and chopped bacon.

Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted (about 5-7 minutes) Serve and enjoy!
