Put the cheese on top of the chicken just before taking off the grill, then sprinkle with bacon bits, chopped tomato and green onions.

My daughter in law makes these but doesn't put the cheese inside. Shortly before taking off the grill, she lays the cheese on top to melt. Absolutely wonderful. I'm going to try it with the cheese inside. With cheese on top, you can put into a big bun as a sandwich.

Well...what's NOT to like? Barbecue sauce, spicy cheese, and chicken. Yummy! We also like to add sauteed peppers, onions, and mushrooms to this as well to make it kind of a smothered chicken.

I made this recipe in a grill pan & it turned out great! I used a zesty BBQ sauce & sub'd in smoked provolone cheese as it was what I had on hand. The hint of smoke in the cheese made the chicken taste like it came off the outdoor grill!
