My First Cast Iron Skillet: Cheesy Bacon BBQ Chicken

Christmas toys! Yay! This Christmas I got 2 cast iron skillets, one large and circular and one square with grill indents. I also got a book called I Love Bacon. I decided to combine these 2 amazing gifts to make Cheesy Bacon BBQ Chicken.

Chicken Breast
BBQ Sauce
Shredded Cheddar Cheese

1. Marinate chicken in BBQ sauce for about 30 minutes – 1 hour

2. While chicken is marinating, set the oven to broil. Slice onion and put on stove in oil. Cook until they reach your desired texture (sometimes you feel like juicy carmelized onions, sometimes crispy burnt ones)

3. Sauté marinated chicken in cast iron skillet over the stove until almost fully cooked.

4. Pour BBQ sauce over the chicken. Cover with desired amount of onions. (I used my brand new finger tongs to pick out and place the onions. BOOM. Best Christmas ever.)

5. Cover with cheese.

6. Cut 4 strips of bacon in half. Put 2 halves on each piece of chicken.

7. Place skillet in the oven until the bacon crisps.

  1. Are your hunting for Barbecue Recipes as well? I seriously love this blog. So much excellent meat. I love every kinds of barbecue, but my positively number one is Carolina Barbecue. Yet, a very good Texas Brisket makes a few of the very best barbecue recipes on the our planet. I’m a searcher in a quest for the best barbecue!
