3-Ingredient Cheddar-Bacon Chicken Breasts
slices gluten-free bacon, chopped
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 5 oz each)
teaspoon ground pepper
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)
Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bacon; cook 7 to 9 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined plate; set aside. Drain and discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings from skillet.
Rub chicken with salt and pepper. Heat skillet with reserved drippings over medium heat. Add chicken; cook uncovered 14 to 16 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove from heat; top each breast with 1/4 cup cheese. Cover skillet; let stand 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with bacon, and serve.
- You can use precooked gluten-free bacon; just add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to skillet, and make chicken as directed in recipe.
