Bacon Cheddar Chicken Breasts

Dinner, Main Dish, Poultry


4 tbsp olive oil (60 mL)

4 large chicken breasts

Seasoning salt, to taste

4 tbsp mayonnaise (60 mL)

6 bacon slices

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese (250 mL)

1 tsp dried parsley (5 mL)


Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).  Wash chicken breasts, pat dry with paper towels and remove any large pieces of fat or bits of bone.  Sprinkle both sides with seasoning salt.

In 2 frying pans over medium high heat in hot oil, divided between pans, sear chicken breasts on both sides until turning golden in spots, about 6 minutes.  Place in 9 x 13-inch (2 L) casserole dish.  Cover each breast with 1 tbsp mayonnaise (15 mL).

Cut bacon slices into bits (you can do this by cutting through all the bacon slices at once with a large, sharp serrated knife).  Arrange bacon bits on top of mayonnaise on each breast.  Bake uncovered 30 minutes and then top with Cheddar cheese and sprinkle with parsley.  Bake another 10 minutes until cheese has melted and top is golden brown.  Remove from heat.  Let rest 3 minutes and serve.
