BBQ, Avocado, Bacon and Cheddar Chicken Recipe

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and roughly chopped
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional: hamburger buns or lettuce wraps for serving

Instructions

1. Getting Started

  • Preheat: If grilling, preheat your grill to medium-high heat. If baking, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  • Prepare the chicken: Pound chicken breasts to an even thickness (this helps them cook evenly). Season both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Cooking Methods (choose one)

– Grilling

  • Grill the chicken for 5-6 minutes per side, or until cooked through and slightly charred.
  • During the last few minutes of cooking, brush the chicken with BBQ sauce and flip to glaze the other side.

– Baking

  • Place the chicken in a baking dish and bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through.
  • During the last 5 minutes, brush with BBQ sauce and sprinkle with cheese, letting the cheese melt.

3. Assembling Your Chicken

  • Top with the goods: Top each chicken breast with chopped bacon, avocado slices, and a sprinkle of cheddar cheese.
  • Optional: Melt the cheese: For extra melty cheese, briefly return the chicken to the grill or oven for a minute or two.

4. Serving Options

  • On its own: Enjoy as a flavorful and satisfying main dish.
  • On a bun: Serve on hamburger buns with extra BBQ sauce for a classic BBQ chicken sandwich.
  • Low-carb option: Wrap in lettuce leaves for a lighter option.

Tips

– If you don’t have an avocado that’s perfectly ripe, use a sprinkle of guacamole instead.

– Spice things up with a spicy BBQ sauce, or add a kick with some hot sauce drizzled on top.

– Add your other favorite toppings, like red onion or a drizzle of ranch dressing.
