Barbecue Bacon Chicken Breast

Barbecue Bacon Chicken Breast

1 (1 1/2 lb.) package boneless, skinless chicken breasts
4 strips thin bacon, cut in half
9 oz. ( 1/2 bottle) honey barbecue sauce (or your favorite flavor)
1 C. shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Line a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with foil. Sprinkle chicken breasts with pepper to taste. Place 2 bacon strip halves horizontally to cover chicken breasts. Top with barbecue sauce and fold foil over to make a packet.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until chicken is just done. Increase heat to broil.

Open foil and broil until bacon crisps, 1 to 2 minutes. Top with cheese. Put back in oven and cook 1 to 2 minutes, or until cheese melts.
