Barbecue Chicken Bundles

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by Mooseybear

I got this recipe a long time ago from a Land O Lakes cooking mag. This is excellent for summer BBQ's as a steak or burger alternative. You can also use different types of cheese as well. You can also broil this dish in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes, then turn over and cook for 20 minutes. You will need to half cook the bacon first if you broil this dish!

I used Sweet Baby Rays bbq sauce to make this recipe. Loved the flavor of the cheese and bacon along with the sauce. Made for one delicious meal. We really enjoyed! Thanks Moosey!
