It's tempting to seek out new flavors when baking chicken, but then again, with bacon, barbecue sauce and cheddar cheese so easy to grab from the fridge, why linger in doubt? Pull out this combination the next time you get the "what's for dinner" text. —Brenda Coleman, Jackson, Alabama

"Ms. Brenda cooks for our school children at JA and we have this dish for lunch occasionally and it is very popular with our 5K-12 students, just as it is with adults. Who doesn't love bacon and cheddar cheese? We love her lunches and when students come to our school, they have already heard about our delicious meals!"

"You've got to be kidding me. A four-year old could come up with this recipe. I can't believe that Taste of Home would publish such an uneventful receipe. Thought the magazine and website were better than this"

"Fantastic! We were so sick of the same ol chicken recipes when I came across this one and went for it. We loved it, even my toddler! Now it's worked itself into our 'favorites' list. Easy prep! Did not alter recipe a bit, try sharp cheddar for most flavor! Highly Recommend!"

"This was a super easy weeknight meal. Ramp it up a little by putting the chicken in the teriyaki sauce in the morning & letting it soak all day.

You can always throw it on a nice roll for a great sandwich too!"
