Smokehouse Chicken

This Smokehouse Chicken is always very well received at my house.  The biggest challenge I encounter is keeping everyone away from the bacon so that I have a slice to top each chicken breast half with.  Why is it that whenever I make bacon, everyone ends up in the kitchen trying to steal a slice?  I always make a little extra, but it never seems to be enough.  

Smokehouse Chicken

4 Chicken Breasts
Seasoning for Chicken Breasts (I used Durkee Grill Creations Chicken Seasoning)
1 Tbsp. Canola Oil
8 Tbsp. BBQ Sauce 
2 c. Sharp Cheddar, Shredded
8 slices bacon
1/3 c. Green Onions, sliced

Preheat oven to 450*.  Place bacon on a cookie sheet and bake for 15 minutes or until done.  

Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add oil.  While your skillet is heating prepare chicken.  Cut each chicken breast in half and place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and pound out to an even thickness.  Sprinkle with seasoning.  Fry each chicken breast until done, turning to other side when the first side is browned. 

Once all of the chicken is done, place on a baking pan.  Place about 1 Tbsp. of BBQ sauce on each piece of chicken and spread to coat.  Sprinkle 1/4 c. of cheese on each chicken piece and top each with 1 slice of bacon.  Sprinkle with green onions.  

Place in oven at 450* for about 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.  




  1. Everything about this chicken dish looks delicious!!!

  2. I think this would also make a great sandwich! I can picture the chicken in a nice homemade bun with a little extra bbq sauce. I think I might try that actually. I'm bookmarking this, looking forward to making it. Thanks Megan!

  3. Mmmm! It would be DELICIOUS as a sandwich! Thanks for the great idea!

  4. I made this for dinner tonight and it was so good! I used turkey bacon instead, cooked it in a skillet, and just put it on the chicken 5 minutes before it was done so that it wouldn't burn. The combination of flavors was great! I will definitely make it again. Thanks for the great recipe!

  5. Wow, this looks yummy! Yes, as Brenda says, I think this would make a fabulous sandwich! Yummy!

  6. This sounds decadent! Nice to meet you - I am always looking for new recipes for chicken.

  7. Awesome recipe, looks very close to Chili's Monterey Chicken recipe. Might be a great copycat version, will have to try it.

  8. I made this tonight for dinner and it tasted great!
