Monterey Chicken -Copycat Recipe

This was a quick and tasty meal that can be put together at the last minute.  We liked it.
Monterey Chicken -Copycat Recipe

2 chicken breasts, boneless skinless
¼ Cup mozzarella cheese
¼ Cup Monterey/Cheddar blend cheese (or just cheddar is good!)
4 slices bacon
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp onion powder
BBQ sauce

Before we start grilling, cut bacon in medium dice and cook it in a skillet over medium low heat until crispy. Set aside.

Season chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and the dried spices.

Heat grill over high heat for at least 5 minutes. Grease grates, place chicken on grill over medium heat. Let cook until almost done. When chicken has an internal temperature of 150 degrees, baste with BBQ sauce on both sides and continue cooking until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees. (Don't baste the chicken as soon as it hits the grill or else the sugars in the BBQ sauce will burn.)

When chicken is cooked through, place half of the bacon on top of each piece. Mix the cheeses together and spread evenly over each piece.

Place top of grill down and let the cheese melt, this will only take a couple minutes.
Serve and enjoy!
