Cheesy Bacon Chicken

I planned to make this recipe the day I discovered the freezer had thawed, so I went ahead with this.  It was very good--just a bit dry.  Think I will cook it a bit less and broil it for a few minutes to crisp the bacon.
Cheesy Bacon Chicken

5-6 chicken breasts, cut in half width wise (about 2.5-3 lbs.)

2 tbsp seasoning rub (I use my smoked paprika rub, but you can use a seasoning salt or bbq rub - basically any rub with salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika - not an herb rub)

1/2 pound bacon, cut strips in half

4 oz shredded cheddar

sugar free barbecue use, optional, to serve

1. Preheat oven to 400. Spray a large rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. Rub both sides of chicken breasts with seasoning rub. Top each with a piece of bacon. Bake for 30 min on the top rack until the chicken is 160 degrees and the bacon looks crispy.

3. Remove tray from the oven and sprinkle the cheese oven the bacon. Put back in the oven for about 10 min until the cheese is bubbly and golden. Serve with barbecue sauce.
