Ok, so this was BOSS - and almost painfully easy.
2 chicken breast halves (or just 1 giant one, pounded out & cut in half, if you get them from Dot's)
3 slices bacon, cooked crisp & chopped
1/2 cup shredded cheddar
Season* and sear chicken breasts for about 5 minutes on each side. I actually cooked mine in some of the leftover grease from making my bacon bits. Place in greased baking dish and spoon on teriyaki sauce, then ranch dressing. Cover with cheese and bacon (and green onions, if you like) and bake for about 25 minutes on 350, or until chicken reached 165+ degrees in the middle.
This made just enough for two, so double the recipe if you're making it for a family.
Obviously, you could do this with about any condiment and switch up the cheese selection. I think I might try it next with honey dijon mustard and gruyere cheese.
*House seasoning is best for simple chicken and beef recipes that call for searing.
4 parts salt
1 part garlic powder
1 part fresh ground pepper
I keep mine in a very special container.
