The bacon from the Chicken Corn Chowder was burning a hole in my refrigerator, so I had to think of something to use it...and fast! I first went to my friend Lori's bacon wrapped pork tenderloin recipe, but there wasn't any pork tenderloin in my freezer (how can that be?)
There is a ton of chicken~ Kroger had chicken for 55 cents a pound and I had to stock up. Who doesn't love bacon and cheddar cheese? And on chicken, even better. Chicken cooked in the bacon grease...yummmmmm....
Cheesy Bacon Chicken
3 slices bacon
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon onion, chopped
1 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Cook bacon in 12" skillet until crisp, about 4-6 minutes. Crumble bacon and set aside. Sauté chicken breasts in the bacon grease over medium heat, turning once, until chicken is cooked and no longer pink in center. Place chicken in greased 8x8" glass 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 until cheese is melted.
