Recipe: Trevor's Chicken

 Trevor's Chicken
For some time now, I have been wanting to share this favorite recipe of our family's as it truly always makes everyone in our family smile. I hesitated because I could never seem to get a decent picture of the meal. To this novice photographer, it is a seemingly difficult meal to photograph. (And it does not help when you continuously forget to snap a photo before you start eating the mouthwatering meal every...single...time.) :)  But seriously, each time we fix this, our plates are cleaned within minutes. We like good, hearty protein-filled meals at our house; this tops our protein-packed dinner recipe list! The pictures do not do the rich flavor justice, but basically what you are looking at in picture #2 is chicken topped with bbq sauce, bacon and cheese. The first picture shows the salsa on top of the cheese. (well, what was left of it!!)
4 boneless chicken breasts
8 oz Monterey Jack cheese
4 slices of bacon (cooked)
Barbecue sauce, 2 cups

Grill chicken breast with salt, pepper and barbecue sauce. Top with cooked bacon and cheese. Grill under broiler oven. Top with salsa and serve.

This recipe came from a cookbook my mom sent me last year after I started working and was looking for "5 ingredients and fewer" type meals. It's a Take Five Cookbook. She had it in her collection and was not really using it anymore...thanks mom!! I actually have not tried any other recipes from this little book, but if they are half as good as "Trevor's Chicken" I know we will enjoy them!
