Chicken breasts fried up beautifully - was a touch hesitant coating the golden chicken with barbecue sauce but it was good. I thought the cheese gave it good flavor but seems it was preferred the barbecue coated chicken not be topped with the cheese. Am sure I can get around that and somehow tuck/stuff the cheese and bacon into the breast before putting it in the oven next time around - and there will be a next time for this one. Will be back after giving that a try!
