  • 4 whole boneless skinless chicken breasts halves
  • ½ cup shredded Monterrey Jack cheese
  • ½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 /3 cup Caesar salad dressing
  • 2 tablespoon chopped chives or green onion
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and cut in half
  • 1 fresh tomato diced
  • Salt
  • Montreal Chicken seasoning (I use McCormick Brand)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
    Line a baking sheet with foil or parchment paper to cut down on the mess. 
  • Preheat a skillet with 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Season chicken with salt and place in pan, cooking on both sides. You don’t need to cook the chicken all the way through, but do try to get it nicely browned and caramelized- that’s where the flavor is! 
    Place browned chicken on the cookie sheet and sprinkle with Montreal Chicken Seasoning. Evenly distribute the Caesar dressing over each breast, followed by 2 strips of bacon and top with even amounts of cheese, chives or onions, and tomatoes.
  • Place in oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through and reaches 165 degrees F. Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breast.
