Start by gathering up all your ingredients. You need chicken breast (stock up when it’s on sale!), an onion, minced garlic, pepper jack cheese, BBQ sauce, bacon, and peppers. You’ll also need some flour to coat the chicken. You can use regular all-purpose flour or your favorite gluten free all-purpose flour.
Slice up your onions and peppers. Don’t they look so pretty?
Cook your bacon. You can use a George Foreman grill, cook it in a skillet, or bake them – whatever way is easiest for you!
Cook the onion, garlic, and peppers in a little of the bacon fat.
Cut the chicken so it’s about 1/2″ thick, then it in the flour and then cook for about 5 minutes per side.
Put the chicken breasts in a baking dish (grease it first!) and add a little barbecue sauce on top. Top each piece with some of the pepper & onion mixture, then cover with cheese & bacon. Bake until the cheese is melted.
