Fry bacon slices in a large oven-proof skillet until crispy. Remove bacon to paper towels, to drain. When cool, cut each piece of bacon in half. Leave about 2 Tablespoons bacon grease in skillet; discard the rest.
While you are cooking bacon, pound the chicken breasts out until they are fairly thin so they will cook faster (I cut two LARGE chicken breasts in half horizontally, so I skipped this step). Season chicken with salt and pepper.
Heat reserved bacon grease on medium-high. When skillet is hot, cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes per side, until golden brown (times may vary due to thickness of chicken).
Pour the chicken broth over chicken. Put a lid on the skillet. Continue to cook chicken (covered) for 4-5 minutes. When done, turn off heat.
Preheat your oven broiler.
Spread 1 Tablespoon of BBQ sauce over the top of each piece of chicken. Place 2 bacon halves onto BBQ sauce covered chicken. Divide cheese evenly and cover top of chicken.
Place skillet with chicken in the middle of the oven under preheated broiler. Broil only until the cheese is completely melted. Remove hot skillet from broiler.
Garnish each piece of chicken with diced tomato and sliced green onions. Serve and enjoy.
