“After reading this recipe here, it sounded so good that I had to put my personal touches to it. I'm not particularly fond of chicken breasts unless they're flattened to a pulp and delicately browned after being dredged in flour. After that I followed the original recipe except I added crushed red peppers and Italian seasoning. I served this with fettuccine alfredo and roasted asparagus on the side. Delizioso!”

Original recipe yields 4 servings



  1. Mix flour, bread crumbs, garlic salt, and black pepper together in a bowl. Coat each chicken breast with flour mixture.
  2. Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Remove bacon with a slotted spoon, reserving bacon drippings; drain bacon on paper towels.
  3. Cook and stir coated chicken breasts in the bacon drippings until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side; remove and keep warm.
  4. Cook and stir onion, lemon-pepper seasoning, Italian seasoning, salt, red pepper flakes, and brown sugar in the same skillet until onion is golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes.
  5. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.
  6. Arrange chicken breasts on a baking sheet; top each breast with 2 bacon slices. Top with caramelized onion and Colby-Monterey Jack cheese.
  7. Broil chicken breasts until cheese is melted and bubbling, 1 to 3 minutes.

I made this recipe for Sunday dinner,AWESOME! Used boneless chicken tenders instead of full breast. followed the recipe made no changes,served it with steamed brussel sprouts, and fettuccine alfredo



This is awesome. The only problem I had was cooking the chicken breasts because they were large and I could only cook one at a time so it took longer to make, but well worth it. This would be a great recipe also to serve for guests; I would just make everything ahead until you get to the last steps to save time.



This was delicious! It was a bit greasy, I would probably save this for a comfort food day. However, that being said I think it would be an easy recipe to trim down with turkey bacon rather than regular, and then using a bit of cooking spray or veg. oil instead of the grease. You could also substitute light cheese. As is though, this is a great recipe. The sweet onion topping went great with the salty bacon & cheese. Highly recommend trying this one.
