This is one of those dishes. The kind that come to mind when life is crazy and you need to come up with something to fix for dinner but it needs to meet all of your life-is-crazy requirements such as

1) so super easy

3) crowd pleaser (even those picky eaters!)

4) few ingredients

5) on the healthier side

Check, check, check, check, check.

Yep, this is one of those recipes.

Melty Bacon Swiss Chicken

We are talking 5 minute prep, about 25 minutes in the oven, and onto the table before you’ve even managed to round up the troops. And it has swiss CHEESE. And BACON.

Talk about buzz words.

P.S. if you are a dressing/sauce/dip person… you need to serve this with some creamy ranch dressing.

This definitely meets all of my life-is-crazy requirements. It looks delicious!

    My kind of food!

You had me at bacon and melty swiss cheese! This looks so delicious!

How long did you cook your bacon before putting it on the chicken and baking the chicken in the oven for the full time? I cooked bacon for the first time recently an it cooked so quickly that it was a little too overcooked and I don’t want to repeat it if I could. Thanks! Looks delicious and can’t wait to try this one!

    Hi V, it depends on if you get “fully cooked” bacon, or raw. If it’s fully cooked, you can cook it in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. If it’s raw, probably 1-2 minutes. It shouldn’t be crispy yet!

Happy Friday! Just letting you know I featured this recipe in my Deliciously Healthy Low-Carb Recipes Round-Up for April 2015. Great recipe; I hope a lot of my readers will click over here and try it!

Oh my gosh my mouth is watering just looking at these pictures! Can’t wait to try this!
