Cheddar Bacon Chicken

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

    Quick, simple, and delicious! Great for my busy family since it can be hard to find time to cook for dinners during the week. Loved the flavor.

    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!

    This recipe was easy to make and had a nice flavor with the mix of teriyaki and barbeque.

    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!
