Chicken pieces are coated with spices, then baked!

Anyone remember the catch-phrase “It’s Shake n’ Bake… and I helped!”?  I sure remember those TV commercials for shake and bake chicken. Years ago, I used this mixture for baked chicken.

Today I’d like to share with you a copycat version of how to easily make your own Homemade Shake and Bake Chicken! This copycat recipe for the spice mixture uses ingredients you probably already have in your kitchen! The original shake and bake chicken mix was a packet you could buy to help season chicken or pork.  All you needed to do was shake it on the chicken, then bake it! Talk about convenience!

Well, why not make it yourself, and save some money?  The spice mix is so easy to throw together, the chicken pieces are coated with it, then it’s baked until done. That’s it!

Make The Spice Mix

To make the spice mix, flour, paprika, salt, garlic powder, thyme, and black pepper are mixed in a small bowl  until combined. The shake and bake chicken mix, as written, will coat 8 pieces of chicken. Once mixed, place the spice mixture in a gallon sized, resealable bag.

Spices are mixed together in bowl, for shake and bake chicken.

Prepare Homemade Shake And Bake Chicken For Cooking

Take the skin off the chicken (optional, but healthier). When I make the shake and bake chicken for these photos, I used chicken thighs and legs. Dip each of the chicken pieces, one at a time, in milk. Cover all sides with the milk.

Shake and bake chicken is first dipped in milk.

After dipping the chicken piece in milk, shake the excess off.  Place the chicken (one piece at a time) into the large resealable bag with the spice mix. Close and shake until the piece of chicken is coated on all sides. Repeat this process for each piece of chicken.

Shake and bake chicken is then tossed in the dry spice mixture to cover.

Spray a 13×9 inch baking sheet with non-stick spray. Place each of the coated shake and bake chicken pieces onto the pan. Be sure to leave a bit of space between each of the pieces.

Pieces of shake and bake chicken are placed onto baking sheet.

Time To Cook the Shake And Bake Chicken!

Cook the shake and bake chicken in a preheated 375 degree oven for 40 minutes. Large chicken breasts will need to cook a little bit longer to be fully cooked through.

Shake and bake chicken turns a golden brown color while baking.

Shake and bake chicken has finished cooking and is served, hot from the oven!

When the chicken is finished cooking, remove the pan from oven.  If any of the spice mix is still “dry” on top of the shake and bake chicken, simply brush some of the pan drippings onto the mix. This should wet the spice mix enough for a uniform look.

Serve, and enjoy this delicious shake and bake chicken with a side dish you enjoy!  It’s a completely SIMPLE and flavorful way to serve those you love a tasty dinner without a lot of fuss! Have a wonderful day, and may God bless you!

This recipe for Chicken Parmesan Spinach Gnocchi, that’s what… a simple, yet absolutely delicious entree!  If you’re a Vegetarian, you can simply leave the chicken out and still enjoy this wonderful dish!

I found the original recipe on Pinterest, and decided to fix it for dinner recently.  It was sooooo good!  This chicken parmesan spinach gnocchi recipe serves 4, and only takes about 30 minutes to prepare, from start to finish!

How To Make Chicken Parmesan Spinach Gnocchi

Here’s how simple this recipe is to prepare:  Cut 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Lightly season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Heat olive oil in skillet on medium high heat.

Once oil is hot, add chicken and cook 3-4 minutes, turning occasionally until cooked through.  Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.

Chicken, Parmesan & Spinach Gnocchi / The Grateful Girl Cooks!Chicken, Parmesan & Spinach Gnocchi / The Grateful Girl Cooks!Cook The Gnocchi

Prepare gnocchi according to package directions. Basically, you add them to boiling water, cook, and when they float to the surface they are done. This typically takes only a few minutes.  Drain the gnocchi. Set aside.

Chicken, Parmesan & Spinach Gnocchi / The Grateful Girl Cooks!Chicken, Parmesan & Spinach Gnocchi / The Grateful Girl Cooks!Prepare The Sauce

Place the empty pan back on the stove. Add butter to pan and heat on medium until melted. Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute, stirring well.  Add flour; stir well to remove lumps and form a roux (thick paste).

Cook and stir for 30 seconds, just to “cook out” the raw flour taste. Add milk slowly to roux; stir or whisk it well to remove any remaining lumps. Cook this for 2-3 minutes only until the sauce has begun to thicken.

This is what the creamy sauce will look like, as it begins to thicken while cooking.

Time For Some “Add-Ins”

Stir in the chopped fresh spinach.  Cook for 3-4 minutes until the sauce has thickened and spinach has wilted.  Add Parmesan cheese and the cooked chicken into sauce. Stir well to combine.

You can add a bit more milk if the sauce is too thick. Taste the finished sauce, then season with additional salt and pepper, if necessary, to suit your personal taste preference.

Chicken, Parmesan & Spinach Gnocchi / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

Add The Gnocchi And Serve

Remove the pan from the heat, and add cooked, drained gnocchi. Gently stir until all ingredients are combined.  If necessary, reheat through on low. Serve the chicken parmesan spinach gnocchi immediately once it reaches the desired heat.

If you enjoy this chicken parmesan spinach gnocchi, you will LOVE my “copycat” recipe for Olive Garden’s Chicken Gnocchi Soup or a recipe for Creamy Italian Sausage Gnocchi. They are both delicious, also!

Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce

Here it is… the middle of a freezing winter in Oregon, but on one clear, cold, yet beautiful evening last week, we grilled Teriyaki Chicken With Homemade Sauce OUTSIDE on our BBQ! It was fun, and made us anticipate the hot days of summer which, thankfully, are coming SOON!Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!
I got this simple recipe for an “enhanced” Teriyaki sauce marinade from my sister Julie many years ago. I usually cut the chicken into cubes, marinate them then place chicken on skewers and grill, but this time, I left chicken breasts whole (thin ones) and grilled them, with the same delicious results!  The sauce is ridiculously easy to make, and the chicken is full of flavor. See the Tips section of printable recipe for info. on using this marinade for steak).

Here’s how you make the sauce:

In a medium sized bowl, mix together teriyaki sauce, sugar, cooking sherry, ground ginger, and minced garlic. Stir well until ingredients are fully combined.  Lightly season chicken pieces with salt.

Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

Place chicken into a covered container (or heavy duty gallon sized resealable plastic bag) and pour the marinade over the top. Turn to coat all pieces with marinade sauce.

Cover container; refrigerate chicken and marinade for at least 6 hours for best flavor (overnight is the best!). Turn chicken occasionally to fully coat.

Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

When chicken has finished marinating, place chicken onto hot BBQ grill (outdoor or indoor grill) and cook until done.

If desired, you can baste the chicken while it cooks with the sauce. (Do NOT use the leftover sauce once the chicken is fully cooked- discard).

Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

That’s it! See how very easy that was?  The teriyaki chicken has a wonderful flavor, and can be served as an entree.

It can be used to make teriyaki chicken sandwiches (with some grilled pineapple rings- yum!), or can be used in salads or teriyaki rice bowls. The possibilities are endless, and the flavor is wonderful!

Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

Teriyaki Chicken with Homemade Sauce / The Grateful Girl Cooks!

I love recipes that can be made up ahead of time (like marinading the chicken all day), then cooked at the last minute without a lot of fuss. It sure makes an easy main dish for the family!

Have a great day. May you have eyes to see beauty all around as you go through your day.  Whether in a stunning sunset, the eyes of a friend or family member, or a kindness shared or observed… be the kind of person that seeks to find true beauty in it all; be grateful and kind.

Alice Springs Chicken (Outback Steakhouse Copycat)

Alice Springs Chicken is pan-seared chicken with bacon, mushrooms, and melted cheeses, in a honey-mustard sauce. This copycat recipe is delicious!Alice Springs Chicken is pan-seared chicken with bacon, mushrooms, and melted cheeses, in a honey-mustard sauce. This copycat restaurant recipe is delicious!

Do chicken breasts, covered with bacon, mushrooms, Jack and Cheddar cheese in a honey mustard sauce sound good? If so, you will enjoy this Alice Springs Chicken (Outback Steakhouse Copycat) recipe, a popular menu item at this nationally known restaurant.

I found the recipe for Alice Springs Chicken in a cookbook I have had for years, which features kitchen clones from famous restaurants, and decided to make this one.  It really tastes wonderful! The recipe itself is very easy to prepare, and the end result is fantastic! Here’s how to make this dish at home:

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of Page

Make Sauce To Marinate Chicken

Combine Dijon mustard, honey, oil, and lemon juice in a small bowl. Blend well with a fork until combined.  Place chicken breasts in a resealable plastic food storage bag.

Pour about 2/3 of the sauce over the chicken. Make sure chicken gets coated with sauce, then place in refrigerator and let marinate for 2 hours.  Cover and refrigerate the remaining 1/3 of the sauce until time to serve the meal.

Chicken marinating in plastic bag

In a small skillet, sauté sliced mushrooms in butter until cooked through (approx. 4-5 minutes). Set aside.

Mushrooms cooking in skillet

Time To Cook The Chicken

Heat oil in a large OVENPROOF skillet (If you don’t have an ovenproof skillet, sear the chicken breasts as directed in regular skillet, then transfer them to a baking dish). When oil is hot, add the chicken breasts.

Cook them for 3-4 minutes per side. until golden brown. Once done, move the skillet off the heat, but leave chicken in skillet (unless transferring to baking dish).

***Here’s my TIP... make SURE the chicken breasts are thin. I took 2 really thick chicken breasts and sliced them horizontally when I made this dish. The very first time I made this recipe, I was cooking this for 6 people and used a couple large/thick chicken breasts in the mix.

Even with the pan-searing AND the baking time in the recipe, the really thick ones did not fully cook all the way through (about 85 percent), so I had to take their plates back and microwave the chicken for our good friends who were over for dinner. Ugh. That sure was embarrassing.  We laughed about it, but I was mortified!  Have not ever repeated THAT mistake since, thankfully!

Assembling The Alice Springs Chicken

Brush each chicken breast with a bit of the reserved honey mustard sauce. Do NOT use the sauce the chicken was marinated in!). Sprinkle the chicken with salt, pepper, and paprika. Place two pieces of bacon on top of each chicken breast (can cut to fit).

Evenly place cooked mushrooms on top of the bacon, then cover with Jack cheese, followed by cheddar cheese (about 1/4 cup of each type of cheese onto each piece of chicken).

Cook the chicken breasts, uncovered,  in a preheated 375 degree oven for 9-10 minutes. When done, the cheese should be fully melted and should have begun to bubble.

Garnish And SERVE!

Remove the hot skillet from the oven. Top each chicken breast with a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley.

Melted cheese on top of cooked dish

Serve the reserved honey mustard sauce in a bowl on the side, OR place a spoonful onto the dinner plate and place the chicken on top of the sauce (that’s how I serve it!).

Serve while hot, and enjoy this delicious restaurant-cloned Alice Springs Chicken dish!

Chicken Divan

Chicken Divan is a delicious, easy to make casserole, with chicken breasts and broccoli, baked in a creamy cheese sauce, and served on a bed of fluffy rice.Chicken Divan is a delicious, easy to make casserole, with chicken breasts and broccoli, baked in a creamy cheese sauce, and served on a bed of fluffy rice.
Over 39 years ago, just before getting married, a friend gave me this recipe for Chicken Divan. At this point in my life it would be difficult to count how many times I have made this fantastic casserole recipe over the years. It has been a family favorite!

According to Wikipedia, Chicken Divan was named after the Divan Parisienne Restaurant in New York City where it was created for a contest their Chef entered. His recipe for a chicken casserole, with broccoli, in a creamy Mornay sauce won the contest and became the restaurant’s signature dish!

How I Received This Recipe For Chicken Divan

Many years ago I was given the recipe by my friend Elnora when I was getting married. I worked for Elnora’s husband in the Music Department at the church I attended, and that is how we met. Now, over 40 years later, I am so grateful she gifted me with her recipe, because we truly LOVE this chicken divan.

The recipe makes a phenomenal tasting casserole that serves 8-10 people, and is VERY easy to prepare! Here’s how you make this: (by the way… when I took these photos I only made HALF the recipe, which is reflected in the photos).

Making Chicken Divan

Before assembling the casserole, cook boneless chicken breasts in boiling water until done. You can add onion, celery, and carrots to water for additional flavoring if desired. Remove  the chicken pieces when done, and let them cool. Once chicken is cool, cut it into bite-size pieces, and set aside.

Spray a 9×13 baking pan with non-stick spray. Arrange thawed broccoli across bottom of baking pan. Sprinkle generously with grated Parmesan cheese.

In a medium bowl, combine cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, mayonnaise, grated Cheddar, lemon juice, curry powder, salt and pepper. Mix these ingredients until they are fully combined. The sauce will be fairly thick.

Sauce is mixed together for chicken divan.

Spoon or pour the sauce evenly over the top of the casserole, spreading it out, to cover.  Generously sprinkle the top with additional Parmesan cheese, then lightly sprinkle with paprika.

Chicken casserole is sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and paprika.

Time To Bake The Chicken Divan!

Place several small pads of butter on the top of the chicken divan casserole. Bake, uncovered, in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes, until golden in color. The cheese sauce should be bubbly around the edges of the pan.

Pads of butter placed on top of casserole before baking

When the chicken divan is done, remove the pan to a hot pad, and let it sit for 5-6 minutes. This will allow the casserole time to firm up a bit (the sauce is VERY hot!).

Casserole will be golden brown and bubbly when done baking.

Time To Serve It And Eat!

When ready, serve hot over fluffy rice, and ENJOY this delicious chicken divan casserole! It’s wonderful, because you’ve got chicken, rice AND broccoli all in one dish. The leftovers are fabulous, as well.

Chunks of chicken breast taste magnificent with the sauce and broccoli. Placing it on a bed of rice provides a great medium to soak up some of the delicious sauce! It’s SOOOO delicious!

Recipe Notes

Original recipe says to cook chicken with onion, celery & carrots for flavor. I have never done this, but include it in case you wish to do so. The original recipe also said to cook the frozen broccoli, but I find that if I thaw it out completely, then pat it dry, there is no need to cook it.

Honey BBQ Chicken Strips

Fantastic tasting honey BBQ chicken strips are marinated, seasoned & browned chicken breast tenders, covered with a sweet/sticky honey BBQ sauce and baked.Fantastic tasting honey BBQ chicken strips are marinated, seasoned & browned chicken breast tenders, covered with a sweet/sticky honey BBQ sauce and baked.
My husband and I really enjoyed a new (to us) recipe for Honey BBQ Chicken Strips that I made recently. Sweet and slightly sticky from a Honey/BBQ sauce, these nicely seasoned, browned, then baked chicken strips were fantastic!

Best part? The honey bbq chicken strips were full of flavor… and didn’t take too much time to make! NOTE: I only made a HALF recipe since only two of us were eating, so that is reflected in my photos.

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of the Page

How To Make Honey BBQ Chicken Strips

Cut boneless skinless chicken breasts into strips. Season the chicken strips with salt and pepper. Place the chicken in a medium sized bowl, cover with 2 cups of buttermilk, and stir to fully coat the chicken pieces.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, and refrigerate/marinate chicken for at least 2 hours. When chicken is nearly done marinating, preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep the remaining ingredients.

Make The Coating For Chicken and Mix The BBQ Sauce

  1. Mix together 2 cups buttermilk and hot sauce in a small bowl. Set the bowl aside.
  2. Stir together flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika in a second bowl. Set the bowl aside.
  3. Mix together the BBQ sauce, honey and apple cider vinegar in a third bowl. Set the bowl aside.

Prepare The Chicken Strips For Cooking

Once the chicken is done marinating, remove the chicken strips from the buttermilk and let excess buttermilk drip back into bowl. Dip and fully cover the chicken strips (one at a time) in:

  1. FLOUR MIXTURE (shake off excess), then
  2. BUTTERMILK MIXTURE (letting excess drip off), then
  3. Back in to the FLOUR MIXTURE. Set all the coated pieces of chicken on a large plate or platter until all pieces are finished being coated. It’s a tad messy, but keep going… it will be worth it!

Cook The Chicken Strips

Heat vegetable oil in large skillet. Heat oil to 350-360 degrees (use a thermometer if you have one). Once the oil is at the correct temperature and is really hot, gently place the chicken strips in the oil. Cook in batches, if necessary.

Fry the chicken strips until they are golden brown, and then flip them over and cook the other side. Once both sides are golden brown, remove to wire rack or paper towels. The chicken will be baked after this step, so strips don’t have to be fully cooked through.

Bake The Honey BBQ Chicken Strips

Using a pastry brush, cover the chicken strips with the BBQ/Honey mixture on both sides.  Place the coated strips onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Bake the honey bbq chicken strips at 350 degrees for 20 minutes, until fully cooked.

Time To Serve Honey BBQ Chicken Strips

When done, remove the chicken strips from the oven. Sprinkle each of the pieces with sesame seeds and/or parsley (fresh or dried) for a garnish (optional). Serve the honey bbq chicken strips while hot… and enjoy!

Honey BBQ Chicken Strips on plate, with rice and salad

I served the honey bbq chicken strips for our dinner, with a small salad and rice on the side. The strips would also be a great “snack/appetizer” treat for munching on while watching football or a great game on TV with a friends or family! These delicious pieces of chicken have great flavor, and the sticky sweet BBQ sauce makes them “lip-smacking delicious”!

I sure hope you will consider making these delicious honey bbq chicken strips. I am thankful to have found the recipe from Trish, at “Mom On Time Out”. It’s a “keeper”.  Have a blessed day!

Sun Dried Tomato, Spinach & Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Stuffed chicken breasts, filled with spinach, mozzarella cheese and sun-dried tomatoes are lightly seared, then baked, in this easy dish!Stuffed chicken breasts, filled with spinach, mozzarella cheese and sun-dried tomatoes are lightly seared, then baked, in this easy dish!
Today I am happy to share and recommend a unique and delicious recipe I found on Pinterest for stuffed chicken breasts. YUM.

How can you go wrong with Italian seasoned, pan-seared (then baked) chicken breasts, stuffed full of fresh baby spinach, sun-dried tomatoes, AND ooey, gooey mozzarella cheese? I mean, really… how could this NOT taste good? Here’s how to make them.

Scroll Down For A Printable Recipe Card At The Bottom Of The Page

How To Make Stuffed Chicken Breasts

The first thing you will need to do is mix up the Italian “dressing” in a small bowl. This will only take a minute or less.

An Italian seasoned "dressing" is mixed together before applying to chicken.
This is what it will look like once combined… it’s a bit thicker than a normal dressing or sauce.

The seasoning sauce is fairly thick before it is brushed onto chicken.

Prepare The Chicken Breasts For Stuffing

Carefully cut a “pocket” into each of the chicken breasts. Slice deep into each chicken breast (horizontally), but DO NOT cut all the way through the chicken breast! After cutting, they should be able to open almost all the way (like this, shown below).

Boneless chicken breasts are cut almost all the way through, forming a pocket.
Cover the chicken breasts inside and out with the Italian “dressing”. A pastry brush works well for this.

Sauce is brushed onto all sides of the chicken breasts.

Creating The Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Stuff one half of each chicken breast with thinly sliced sun-dried tomatoes (oil-packed). I was lucky to be able to use the sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil that I grew in our garden, dehydrated, then packed in oil last Fall! You can find jars of sun-dried tomatoes (oil-packed) in most grocery stores nowadays.

Sun dried tomatoes are placed on one side of the chicken breast.
Place the slices of mozzarella cheese on top of the tomatoes.

Mozzarella cheese slices are placed on top of sun dried tomatoes.
Top the mozzarella slices with a handful of fresh baby spinach leaves. Whoo Hoo… they’re almost done now!

Baby spinach leaves are added to the stuffed chicken breasts.

Seal Up Then Brown The Chicken

Now close the chicken breasts up, stuffing as much as you can into each piece. Secure the chicken breast, top to bottom, with several toothpicks to hold it all together. I used 3 toothpicks for each one, putting them in at a diagonal.

Heat olive oil in an OVENPROOF skillet until really hot. Carefully add the stuffed chicken breasts and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, until each side is seared golden brown in color.

Secured with toothpicks, the stuffed chicken breasts are pan seared in hot oil.

Oven Time!

After browning both sides of the stuffed chicken breasts, place the skillet (and chicken) into a preheated 350 degree oven. Cook the chicken for 15-18 minutes for small and medium breasts.

Larger chicken breasts will need to cook a few minutes longer). This is what they will look like when you remove the skillet from the oven.  Lots of gooey cheese and juices!

After baking the stuffed chicken breasts are browned, and oozing with melted cheese.

Serve The Stuffed Chicken Breasts

Place the chicken onto individual serving plates, and for goodness sake… REMOVE THE TOOTHPICKS!!! (Just sayin’ – no one wants to bite into a toothpick now, do they?) Spoon a bit of the sauce and/or melted cheese over the top of each chicken breast, and SERVE!  Doesn’t that look GOOD?

A serving of the stuffed chicken breast, on a plate.

I cut this one in half so you can see what the inside looks like! Pretty sure that you’re gonna like this chicken dish. It is really good!

Once cut, you can see the layers of stuffing in each piece of chicken.

I hope you will consider trying this wonderful chicken recipe… we really enjoyed it!  Have a blessed day, and thank you for stopping by. I hope you will come back again soon.

Stuffed chicken breasts, filled with spinach, mozzarella cheese and sun-dried tomatoes are lightly seared, then baked, in this easy dish!

Category: Dinner, Entree
Cuisine: American
Keyword: stuffed chicken breasts
Servings: 2 servings
Calories Per Serving: 439 kcal
Author: JB @ The Grateful Girl Cooks!
Ingredients
For The Italian "Dressing":
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 Tablespoon white wine vinegar (may substitute lemon juice, if desired)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
For Chicken:
  • 2 small or medium boneless , skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes (oil packed), drained and cut into thin strips
  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese (2 per chicken breast to cover)
  • Handful of fresh baby spinach leaves
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (for pan-searing)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180C).

  2. Mix Italian "dressing" ingredients in a small bowl until combined.
  3. Slice a pocket in each chicken breast. Cut far into each breast (horizontally), but do not slice all the way through. Cover the chicken breasts inside and out with the Italian "dressing". I used a pastry brush.

  4. Stuff one half of each piece of chicken with a layer of sun-dried (and drained) tomatoes. Cover tomatoes with mozzarella cheese slices, then cover cheese with baby spinach leaves. Try to get as much of the filling stuffed inside of the chicken as you can. Use toothpicks to hold each piece together. I used 3 toothpicks for each breast, and inserted them through at an angle.
  5. Heat oil on medium-high in an ovenproof skillet until very hot. Carefully place the chicken breasts into hot skillet. Sear them (without moving them) for 2-3 minutes, then carefully turn over and repeat with other side, until golden brown on both sides.
  6. Place skillet with chicken into preheated oven. Continue cooking for 15-18 minutes. Larger breasts may take a couple minutes longer (it may also take a bit longer if you are cooking more than 4 breasts at a time).
  7. Remove from oven. Place chicken onto individual serving plates. REMOVE TOOTHPICKS. Spoon up some of the juices, and melted mozzarella cheese; place on top of chicken. Serve & enjoy!
Recipe Notes

If you are using really large chicken breasts, you can cut them in half once done, and you will end up with 4 decent sized portions (budget stretcher 101)

I tried a new recipe for a quick dinner the other night… Skillet Monterey Chicken! This delicious one pan (copycat) dish features chicken breasts, bacon, BBQ sauce, cheddar and jack cheese, and can be prepared and on the kitchen table in 20 minutes! Yum… it was perfect!

I saw this recipe on Pinterest (thanks Trish, at Mom On Timeout) and knew I wanted to try it. Let’s be real… I mean, come on… chicken AND bacon AND BBQ sauce AND cheese? It’s true. This skillet Monterey chicken was calling to me!

Turns out, it was really good, and only took 20 minutes to prepare!  My hubby loved this dish, as well!  Now I know why it was such a popular menu item at Chilis restaurants for so long! Our local Chilis restaurant permanently closed, so I am really glad I can make this dish at home! Here’s how to make this dish:

How To Make Skillet Monterey Chicken

Using an oven-proof skillet, fry bacon until crisp. Once bacon has cooled, cut each piece in half.  Leave some of the bacon grease in pan (to cook chicken breast in), but discard the rest.

Brown The Chicken

While bacon is cooking, salt and pepper the chicken breasts. Once bacon has been removed from pan, add the chicken breasts cutlets to the hot skillet.  Cook about 3 minutes per side on medium-high, until golden brown.

TIP: I cut two large chicken breasts in half lengthwise, so the pieces were fairly thin. This helps to cook them faster, and is still a good portion size. If using whole chicken breasts, make sure to pound them out thinner, between sheets of plastic wrap, before cooking.

The little bit of bacon grease you left in the skillet when you cooked it really adds great flavor to the chicken.

Chicken breasts are cooked and browned on both sides for skillet Monterey chicken.

Once chicken has cooked on both sides, pour chicken broth over the chicken. Put a lid on the skillet, and continue to cook 4-5 more minutes (covered) or until the chicken is cooked through. The time will vary, depending on how thick the chicken breasts are).

Chicken broth is added to the skillet Monterey chicken while it cooks.

Once chicken is done, remove lid from skillet and remove skillet from heat. Before continuing, PREHEAT YOUR OVEN BROILER.

Building The Layers On The Chicken

While broiler is pre-heating, spread BBQ sauce over each piece of chicken (1 Tablespoon on each piece).

Place two (half) pieces of bacon on top of the BBQ sauce.

Two cooked bacon halves are added to the Skillet Monterey Chicken.

Divide the cheese evenly and place on top of the bacon, covering the entire piece of chicken.

Grated jack and cheddar cheeses are added to the skillet Monterey chicken.

Place the skillet and chicken (see why you need an oven-proof skillet?) on the middle rack of oven under the broiler. Keep an eye on it. Once cheese is fully melted (anywhere from 30 seconds to 1-2 minutes), remove the hot skillet Monterey chicken from the oven.

Garnish And Serve The Skillet Monterey Chicken

Top each piece of chicken with diced tomato and sliced green onions.  The skillet Monterey chicken looks and smells real good, right about now!

Chopped tomatoes and green onions are added to top the skillet Monterey chicken.

Transfer portions to individual serving plates, dig in, and enjoy delicious Skillet Monterey Chicken!
