Monterey Chicken

First thing I want to say is that I feel totally awesome because I was convinced no one looked at my blog, and then I put that little live feed tracker up cause it was free and I get to see that people actually do look at my blog and what they look at! ummm, I am totally excited that ya'll are coming to the blog, so if you leave comments and say hi that great too, but just to know you have been here makes me smile!....

okay, so first step to cooking this chicken is to add BBQ Sauce...

 Cheese on top
 Tomatoes, then bacon bits, then green onions...


4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c. bar-b-que sauce ( I use Bull's Eye)
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 long pink (we used our George Foreman grill) 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 about 10 minutes.
