I had six chicken breasts to use and instead of pounding/flattening the chicken out, I cut it in half longwise. I put the chicken in my skillet with about 1 tbsp. olive oil and cooked the chicken on medium high heat.
Once the juices started running clear, I sprinkled cooked real bacon bits over the pieces of chicken. I didn't measure the bacon bits but I would say that I put about 1/2 cup on 10 pieces of chicken(I kept a couple pieces of chicken plain for leftover chicken sandwiches for hubby's lunch). I put the lid of my skillet on for about 5 minutes--just enough time for the bacon bits to heat through.
Once the bacon heated through on the chicken, I sprinkled about 8oz of shredded cheddar cheese over the chicken. I turned the heat down to low and I put the lid back on the skillet long enough to melt the cheddar cheese. Once the cheese was melted, the chicken was ready to serve!
This was something really quick to put together!! I served it with french fries and corn. A leafy green salad would have been nice too, however that got forgotten in the preparation of things!
My family gobbled it! I had a couple of pieces for a leftover!
