Rocky Mountain Chicken



Introduction

I bake up a batch of basic chicken breast each week so I always have some on hand for quick dinners. Sometimes basic chicken can get boring and I need to come up with a healthy taste bud pleasing twist.

I've had/seen this in several restaurants. It's always drowning in BBQ sauce and topped with bacon and way too much cheese. Here is a very tasty, but healthier version. I have excluded the bacon altogether, but you could use lean bacon or turkey bacon if you wanted.
