Yum! A delicious meal we both loved! Don't be fooled -- it's actually quite easy!
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
salt and pepper, to taste
1 T. olive oil
1/4 c. stir-fry sauce
1/4 c. ranch dressing
1/3 c. shredded cheddar cheese
1 green onion, chopped
1-2 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken breasts, season with salt and pepper, and saute for 4-5 minutes per side until lightly browned.
Place browned chicken breasts in a baking dish that has been coated with non-stick spray. Brush with stir-fry sauce, then spoon on salad dressing. Sprinkle with cheese and bacon bits.
Bake for 25-35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. About 10 minutes before removing from oven, top chicken breasts with chopped green onion. Continue to bake for remainder of time.
A Note From The Little Lady: Adding the green onion later in the baking process keeps it from charring. If you use regular, chopped onion in place of the green onion, feel free to add prior to baking, as it is heartier and you will not need to worry about it charring.
