If you like cheese and bacon, you’ll love this Chicken Monterey recipe! Have restaurant-caliber flavor in about 45 minutes–quick and easy enough for even a hectic midweek night. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I suppose that the Chili’s recipe developers ought to feel very flattered right about now. I wouldn’t call this any ordinary imitation, though. You had me at cheese and bacon–yum!
Some may say that this would be better cooked on the grill, but I thought that it turned out very nicely this way. Baking it in the oven made it very low-hassle, too. I served it with some green beans and macaroni and cheese (can you tell that we love cheese around here?), but I am sure that it would go with plenty of other things: wild rice, baked beans, cole slaw, maybe even a simple rice casserole would work.
