This three-ingredient dinner is the best thing to ever happen to boneless skinless chicken breasts — we swear. Because when it comes to dinner, why overthink it?

Ingredients

6
slices bacon, chopped
4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 5 oz each)
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon ground pepper
1
cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (4 oz)

Directions

  • 1 Heat 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add bacon; cook 7 to 9 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined plate; set aside. Drain and discard all but 1 tablespoon drippings from skillet.
  • 2 Rub chicken with salt and pepper. Heat skillet with reserved drippings over medium heat. Add chicken; cook uncovered 14 to 16 minutes, turning once, until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Remove from heat; top each breast with 1/4 cup cheese. Cover skillet; let stand 4 to 5 minutes or until cheese melts. Top with bacon, and serve.
Tips  

You can use precooked bacon; just add 1 tablespoon vegetable oil to skillet, and make chicken as directed in recipe.

Want to spice it up? Substitute shredded pepper Jack cheese for the sharp Cheddar.
