Monterrey Chicken

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/4 c. bar-b-que sauce
  • 1/4 c. real bacon bits
  • 1 c. colby and jack cheese, shredded
  • 1 (14 oz.) can Rotel tomatoes, drained (canned with green chilies added)
  • sliced green onions
  • pepper

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound out chicken breasts to flatten. Season with pepper. Grill chicken until no long pink (we used our George Foreman grill) and place on baking sheet covered with foil. Top each chicken breast with one tablespoon bar-b-que sauce, 1/4 c. cheese, 1/4 c. tomatoes, green onions and one tablespoon of bacon bits. Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).

*CHEF”S TIP – Wanna take this dish to the next level? How about marinating the chicken with this simple recipe.

Marinade: 1/4 c. olive oil, 2 T. soy sauce, 2 tsp. McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning. (Only marinade for about a half hour or the meat gets too salty.)
