Cheesy Chicken Bacon Breasts

A new year means a new recipes! I'm back and starting my Senior year of college, I can't believe how fast the time has flown. I spent my summer interning with the BUZZ Magazine working Mondays-Fridays from 9-4 so at the end of the day I was too tired to cook up a meal for one and then blog about it. Sleep was much more important. The good news for y'all is I spent a lot of my free time researching all kinds of new delicious and of course cheap recipes to cook and share. I have an collection of cookbooks and websites that I constantly research for ideas. I even get daily emails from sites like with the recipe of the day. I will do my best to post these recipes frequently but I am taking a full course load and working nights as a Intramural Sports Supervisor and working part time at the BUZZ Magazine so take it easy on me if I miss a week or two.

Here is a recipe that I have been dying to share with y'all. If the title wasn't obvious enough, it has chicken, cheese and bacon and let's face it, anything with bacon is sure to be a hit! I hope you enjoy it as much I do!

Cheesy Chicken Bacon Breats

4 Chicken Breasts
8 slices bacon
1 egg, beaten
1 cup bread crumbs
your choice of sliced cheese

Place egg in shallow dish, place bread crumbs in another dish.

Place 2 slices uncooked bacon around each breast. 

Dip each piece of chicken in egg and then in bread crumbs. Lay each piece of chicken in a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

Top each chicken breast with your favorite slice of cheese. I used provolone but any type will taste just a good.

Continue baking another 10-20 minutes or until chicken is brown and cheese is melted. 

For a side dish I whipped of a pot of instant mashed potatoes and added garlic salt to the mix to spice it up. 

Dig in! I know the smell of bacon has been torturing you for the past hour!

Hope you like this as much as I do! Leave me a comment with any questions or comments and don't forget to follow me to stay up to date on what I'm cooking in my kitchen :)
