Cheesy Bacon Chicken (Monterey Chicken)


Here is a very easy recipe that only requires a few ingredients yet is absolutely delicious! It also is Keto/Low Carb friendly.



Ingredients:

3-4 Chicken Breasts

BBQ Rub of your choice

12 ounces of crumbled Bacon

8-10 ounces of shredded Cheese (I used Cheddar and Monterey Jack)

BBQ Sauce of your choice

Diced Tomatoes

2-3 chopped Green Onions



Season all sides of the Chicken Breasts with the BBQ rub of your choice. Let them rest inside the refrigerator for 30-60 minutes.



Heat Grill or Oven to 325 degrees. Cook Chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 155 degrees. Once it reaches that temperature transfer Chicken to a cast iron pan and coat all sides with the BBQ sauce of your choice.



Return to oven or grill and continue cooking until the chicken reaches 160-163 degrees. Top the Chicken with shredded Cheese, Bacon Bits and more Cheese and return to oven or grill.



Allow cheese to melt and confirm internal temperature reaches 165 degrees. Top with diced Tomatoes and chopped Green Onions. Serve and enjoy!
