I don’t make a whole lot of chicken for dinner…the reason? To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.
My hubby tolerates chicken….barely tolerates it I might add. He does have some recipes he’ll actually request, like chicken and waffles or a recipe for Honey Sesame Chicken that Giz posted on Equal Opportunity Kitchen… thank you, Giz! SO…when I made this recipe, and he actually liked it, I HAD TO post it!
This was very easy to put together, which I really like. The aroma of fried bacon and onions was absolutely wonderful!
You might want to try this if you have a “picky-chicken-eater” too…they might very well be surprised!
* 6 slices bacon
* 1 Tbsp. butter
* 1 Tbsp. olive oil
* 6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
* 1 onion, chopped
* 3 cloves garlic, minced
* 1/2 tsp. salt
* 1/8 tsp. pepper
* 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Cook bacon in 12″ skillet until crisp, about 4-6 minutes. Crumble bacon and set aside. Pour bacon grease out of skillet, but don’t wash or wipe it. Add butter and olive oil to skillet. Saute chicken breasts in this mixture over medium heat, turning once, until chicken is cooked and no longer pink in center. Place chicken in ungreased 12×8-inch baking dish.
Cook onion and garlic in drippings remaining in skillet; cook until onion is softened, then stir in salt, pepper and cooked bacon. Spoon over chicken breasts and sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes until cheese is melted. Serves 6

You had me at bacon LOL! Of course. 🙂 I can understand your hubs aversion to chicken. It’s so hard to cook just right, and doesn’t have a lot of flavor unless it’s bone in breasts or dark meat.
That spumoni marshmallow is wild!!

Oooh, I have an idea for you. make spumoni rice krispie treats and layer them like yo udid here.

Oh you guys have done it again! Bunny, my husband is like yours. Unless the chicken is grilled and slathered in barbecue sauce, he prefers not to have it. I have found a few recipes he’ll eat though. Carol, I have to try this side dish. Side dishes are always so boring, and we LOVE both of these vegies, so thank you! Cyndi, all I can say is wow! One of my favorite ice creams in pistachio, and these marshmallows are just gorgeous. Great job!
