REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
I thought this recipe was really good, and quite fast for a weeknight- which I LOVE. I cheated and microwaved my bacon to save time. I love the Chili's version, but I have to say this was really delish!

This was wonderful. Because we like things spicy, instead of tomatoes on top I sliced some jalepenos and put those on before broiling. I also marinated the chicken breast in italian dressing for about an hour and grilled the chicken to almost done before putting it under the broiler to the melt the cheese. Turned out juicy and very tasty

This is a great recipe; my family loves it! Instead of frying bacon and making a mess in my kitchen, I use real bacon bits and it turns out just as good!!

This is one of our favorite dishes at Chili's. I cooked it lastnight and it was just like eating it at Chili's. The one thing I did differently is instead of cold chopped tomatoes, I used Rotel and put it under the broiler with the cheese. It was great and I am excited to prepare it for my entire family.

Thanks for the great recipes!!

This recipe was very excellent! It tasted just like the Monterey Chicken at Chili's.
