Well as many of you may know, old HankBob has been really focused on eating right (doctors orders) and mainly just trying to be diabetic friendly with my meals. What you may not know is that I have the most amazing woman in my life that anyone could ever ask for, she is totally understanding and willing to stick to the plan with me so that it’s much easier. The up-side to her doing this is that she is constantly researching how to make meals that are diabetic friendly but also extremely tasty while at the same time being a little out of the ordinary.
Now that you have the back story I now have to share with you one of the most amazing meals that I think I have ever had (and it wasn’t even prepared by me lol). Well she totally surprised me one night with this dinner and I was totally blown away and have been craving it ever since… Soooo last night she made it for me again and this time I got a picture.
Ok let me share the recipe with you, hopefully just the sound of the ingredient list will make you drool as much as it does me.
4 boneless chicken breasts
12 strips of bacon cooked and drained
4 slices of baby swiss cheese
1/2 cup favorite BBQ sauce
So since the ingredients state that the bacon should be cooked I am going to assume that you know that you need to cook the bacon and hopefully you know how to do that. By the way, just in case you were not aware this chicken has BACON! Season the chicken with the garlic salt and black pepper and place on the grill on high heat or directly over your coals for just a couple of minutes. We want to get a little char on the chicken, then brush each breast with BBQ sauce and turn. Once turned lower the heat or move to a cool spot on the grill and top each breast with 3 strips of bacon and cover that with a slice of swiss cheese (the benefit of swiss is that it melts but doesn’t run all over the place, plus it tastes great).
Continue to cook on low heat until chicken is done (usually about an additional 15 minutes) then brush the top with a little more BBQ sauce and remove from the grill. Allow this to set for just a minute so that the juices stay in the chicken when you start to eat it… I mean this makes for some very tender, juicy and amazing chicken.
To plate you simply need to place the chicken over your favorite green vegetable, on this night we had green beans and it was a great match.
Give it a shot, it’s a super quick and easy meal that your family will absolutely love. I mean who doesn’t love BACON?
