a not so healthy supper....

...but... is a new favorite :)

instead of a bacon cheeseburger.....
...its a bacon cheese chicken

so this is what you'll need:
6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1/4 C. teriyaki sauce
1/2 C ranch dressing
1C. cheddar cheese
1/2lb. bacon

pretty much, i had everything at home except the teriyaki sauce. i would bet that is the same for you. i don't know about you, but i HATE (and yes if i was talking to you i would yell hate) going to the store to get ingredients for every meal. i don't have a pantry fullllll of foooooood. although i wish i did. not to mention the closest store is 10ish minutes away in a different town. yes my town is a suburb and has a population of 63. i know you are alllll jealous of this small town.

ok, ok, ok i'll get back to cooking.

first you are going to fry your bacon. i always cut the bacon in half before i even open the package of bacon. like this. {i learned this from my m.i.l.}

place the bacon in a large skillet on med./med.low.
to be quite honest i kinda suck at frying bacon. i always look at it and think, it's close but could go longer. i let it go longer and frick, it's too done. the trick is{in my opinon}when you think it could go a bit longer, that's when you should take it off the burner.

this is when you need to take it off the burner. or a bit sooner.
with your tongs, place bacon on a plate with a paper towel on top to soak up the grease :)

you will have some grease left in the skillet. pour most of the grease out, like in a glass jar, can, etc. don't pour down the drain. that's bad. leave just enough grease to make a thin layer on the bottom of skillet. this is what we will sear our chicken in. it gives it a nice yummy flavor.

pre-heat your oven to 350 and spray a 9X13 or 8X8 pan with pam or something similar. this is what we will put our chicken in, when we are done searing it.

place your chicken breasts in the skillet with that left over grease. sear 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are lightly browned.

When both sides are browned like above, place the chicken in the 9X13 pan or 8X8 which ever you use.

now cut the bacon into small bits. i use a scissors but you could stack them up and cut with a knife too.

yuuuuuum :)

now back to the chicken that is in your baking dish. pour the tariayki sauce over the chicken boobs. like so.
next cover with ranch dressing. i used light dressing just because that is what i had on hand. but you could use the KRAFT BRAND with bacon in it.
now top with cheese. like so.
and your bacon pieces.
now bake you chicken in the oven at 350 for 25-35 minutes. until the chicken juices and chicken are no longer pink.

can't believe i didn't take a picture of the finished product!!!!! ahhh!!!!!!
i guess i was too excited to hurry up and eat it!!!
just take my word for looks freakin amazing!!!!!

happy cooking!!! :)
