Very tasty chicken dish. You can serve it over brown rice or whole wheat pasta if desired. Very tasty chicken dish. You can serve it over brown rice or whole wheat pasta if desired.
Number of Servings: 4


    4 (5 oz.) Skinless boneless chicken breasts, pounded out until flattened.
    1/4 c. BBQ sauce
    1/4 c. Hormel real bacon bits
    1 c. 2% colby/monterey jack shredded cheese ( I believe that the nutrition calculator calculated the totals using regular cheese)
    1 (14 oz.) can Rotel (diced tomatoes with green chilies)
    sliced green onions to taste
    pepper to taste


Serves 4

Preheat over to 400. Pound out the chicken breasts until flattened between two sheets of wax paper. Season with pepper.
Cook chicken in a skillet sprayed with non-stick spray over medium-low heat until no longer pink. Place each breast on a sprayed cookie sheet and top each with 1 Tbsp. BBQ sauce, cheese, rotel, 2 Tbsp. Bacon Bits and green onions to taste.

Place into the oven and bake until cheese has melted about 5 minutes.

  • I made this a few weeks ago, and my husband and son LOVED it. My daughter didn't like the BBQ sauce I chose that time around, so this time, I let her choose it. Of course, once again I forgot the diced tomatoes at the grocery store. *faceplam* But it was good w/out it last time. Big yum! - 11/18/12
