Night Nineteen…Monterey Chicken

I made this for us and my parents tonight.  It was really easy, and really good.  The only things I did differently was to bake the chicken instead grilling it, and I didn’t pound the chicken, either.  It still worked well.  Sorry for the fuzzy picture, I didn’t realize how fuzzy it looked til we had eaten it all. :/


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c. bar-b-que sauce ( I used Sweet Baby Ray’s)
1/4 c. real bacon bits
1 c. colby and jack cheese, shredded
1 14 oz. can Rotel tomatoes, drained (canned with green chilies added)
sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound out chicken breasts to flatten. Season with pepper. Grill chicken until no longer pink and place on baking sheet covered with foil. Top each chicken breast with one tablespoon bar-b-que sauce, 1/4 c. cheese, 1/4 c. tomatoes, green onions and one tablespoon of bacon bits. Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).

Is it a keeper?- Like I said, this was really good! 🙂  Mom and Dad both liked it, and we did too!  It was really easy. We had new potatoes, corn, and rolls for sides.

Messiness factor- I give this one a 2 out of 5.  I used the pre-cut green onions from Walmart’s produce section, and everything else was out of bags or cans.  It was a one pan entree.
