Chicken Bacon Bake

Every time I ate at the Cheesecake Factory I would order this dish- which I can't even remember what it is called. One day, I thought, I can make something like this. And I did. What's not to like about chicken slathered with cheese and bacon? I like to on top of mashed potatoes and we always have it with garlic and honey glazed asparagus. It also works great on the grill.

Chicken Bacon Bake (serves 6)


  • 3 Chicken breasts, cut in half length wise to make 6
  • 1 to 2 c. BBQ sauce
  • 1/3 c. any Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/4 c. Red or Sherry cooking wine (optional)
  • Salt & Pepper to taste
  • 2 Scallions, diced
  • Mozzarella cheese, sliced into pieces at least 1 cm thick
  • Bacon, cooked

Cooking Directions:

Mix all the sauces, garlic salt, and pepper together, add a little water and stir. Pour over chicken breasts in 9x13 pan. Marinade chicken at least an hour (if you have time). Cook chicken in sauce for @ 20 min at 350 or until almost done. Cover chicken with cheese and top with bacon. Bake for another 10 min until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with scallions.
