Adjust Servings

Original recipe yields 4 servings

Directions

  1. Sprinkle chicken with salt and lemon-pepper.
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat; cook the chicken breasts in hot oil until no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, 13 to 15 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C). Remove and keep warm.
  3. Place bacon in large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels; reserve 2 tablespoons drippings. Cook and stir onion and brown sugar in reserved drippings until onion is golden, about 5 minutes.
  4. Place two bacon strips on each chicken breast half; top with caramelized onions and sprinkle with Colby-Monterey Jack cheese.

This is fabulously easy and quite a crowd pleaser! The paring of the salty bacon and sweet sugared onions is just perfect and plates beautifully. Thanks for sharing, this recipe has saved my "bacon"(naturally no pun intended), on several pop in guest occasions.

My husband told me this was a keeper after one bite. He said he definitely wants to see this for dinner again. The sweet/salty/crunchy topping was delish! Simple to make, too. Next time I will flatten the chicken breasts out a bit to hold more of the yummy toppings.

This was easy and really good. I will make it with pork tenderloin next time. I also added a can of sliced mushrooms to the sauce and onions and it was good!! I used Maple bacon instead of regular to make it even more sweet.
