Baked BBQ Chicken Breast

This oven-baked BBQ chicken breast recipe is perfect for those days when you crave BBQ but don’t want to fire up the grill.

The chicken is so juicy and flavorful, and it couldn’t be more simple to throw together for those busy weeknights.


– Chicken Breasts – Barbecue Sauce – Shredded Cheese – Bacon – Green Onions

Set the chicken breasts in a baking dish. Use the bottom of a mason jar or sturdy cup to "whack" the chicken breasts a few times on the thickest part of the breast to tenderize the chicken.


Season the chicken breasts on both sides with salt and pepper, to taste.


Spoon the BBQ sauce evenly over each chicken breast, then sprinkle the shredded cheese evenly over the BBQ sauce.


Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165 degrees and the juices of the chicken run clear.


While the chicken is in the oven, slice the bacon into ½" strips.
