Monterey Chicken

I got this from my sister-in-law, Kristen. Chicken, cheese, bacon, what's not to love?? It's really easy and awesome for grilling on these gorgeous summer evenings. Until it gets too hot... Luckily, it's pretty versatile.

12 chicken tenders or 5-6 chicken breasts; seasoned and fried, baked, or grilled.
1 - 1 1/2 C Barbecue sauce
1 lb bacon, crisped and halved
1 - 1 1/2 C cheddar cheese and Monterey jack cheese, shredded (we opted for sliced Monterey jack)
Tomatoes, chopped
Green onion, chopped {But, obviously not pictured... forgot about these...}

Season the chicken with your favorite seasoning salt or chicken seasoning. Cook chicken according to your preference. Place the cooked chicken in a casserole or 9x13" pan. Pour BBQ sauce all over and top with bacon and cheese. Broil in oven until cheese is melted. Top with tomatoes and onion.

We just left the chicken on the grill and turned the heat down really low before adding the sauce and toppings. We also added sliced pineapple for a little extra zing.
