ingredients

directions

  • Cook bacon in 12" skillet until crisp, about 4-6 minutes. Crumble bacon and set aside. Pour bacon grease out of skillet, but don't wash or wipe it. Add butter and olive oil to skillet.
  • Saute chicken breasts in this mixture over medium heat, turning once, until chicken is almost cooked and just barely pink in center. The internal temperature should be 155 degrees F. This should take 8-10 minutes. Place chicken in ungreased 12x8" baking dish.
  • Cook onion and garlic in drippings remaining in skillet. Cook until onion is softened, then stir in salt, pepper, and cooked bacon. Spoon over chicken breasts and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked and cheese is melted.

    Another hit in my household :) This one is a keeper. <br/>I substituted the olive oil for coconut oil. I also omitted the salt. For the cheese, I used a combination of Colby & Monterey Jack, Triple Cheddar, and Mozzarella[with a touch of Philadelphia] shredded cheeses[all Kraft]. YUM. I loved everything about this recipe. Husband cheerfully said it was good. Thanks for sharing.

    This was delicious! I didn't have any onions so I used a packet of dry onion soup mix. Easy and everyone loved it!
