Scale

Ingredients

4 slices thick cut bacon, diced

FOR THE CHICKEN

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 4 (1-pound, total) boneless, skinless chicken breasts, pounded to 1/4-inch thickness
  • salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked or sweet paprika

FOR THE RANCH CREAM CHEESE

  • 4– ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried dill weed
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chives
  • 4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese, white or yellow – I use a little of both

FOR GARNISH

  • chopped fresh parsley
  • sliced green scallions

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Lightly grease a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Set a large skillet over medium-high heat and add in diced bacon; cook until crispy.
  • Remove bacon from skillet and set aside. DON’T discard bacon fat.
  • Return skillet to heat and add vegetable oil to the remaining bacon fat.
  • Pound chicken breasts to a 1/4-inch thickness and season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and paprika.
  • Add chicken breasts to the hot oil – you may have to do this in batches if skillet isn’t big enough – and cook chicken breasts for 2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Flip over the chicken breasts, add butter, and continue to cook for 3 more minutes.
  • Remove chicken breasts from skillet and arrange in previously prepared baking dish. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl combine cream cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dill weed, and chives; mix until thoroughly combined. Taste for seasonings and adjust accordingly. *You can also just stir in 1 tablespoon of store-bought ranch seasoning.
  • Top each chicken breast with 2 tablespoons of the cream cheese mixture. Spread to coat the surface of each chicken breast.
  • Take half of the bacon and add on top of the cream cheese.
  • Sprinkle shredded cheese over the chicken breasts.
  • Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes, or until chicken is cooked through and cheese is melted and lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven.
  • Garnish with remaining bacon, fresh parsley, and scallions.
