An easy recipe for moist chicken topped with cheese and bacon. Oh yes, I said bacon.

Bacon Chicken

Made From Pinterest
Course Main Dish


  • 4 large boneless skinless chicken breasts. I used the frozen chicken bag from Costco
  • 1 beaten egg
  • 1 TBL water
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1-2 TBL dried parsley depending on how much you want.
  • Oil for cooking
  • 3-4 slices of bacon cooked. I cooked mine fairly soft as they will continue to cook a little in the oven
  • 1 to 1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Either pound down your chicken first or cut your breast into cutlets. See above video for tutorial
  • In a shallow bowl, beat together your egg and water until blended.
  • In another shallow bowl, mix together the parmesan cheese, parsley, salt and garlic powder.
  • Dip your chicken breasts into the egg mixture and then into the parmesan cheese mixture and coat well.
  • Fry your breasts in a hot oil until they are golden brown.
  • Cover a cookie sheet with foil and place a wire cooking rack on top.
  • Place your fried chicken breasts on top of the rack and cook at 350 degrees until the juice runs clear.
  • Cooking times will vary depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts and whether or not you've pounded your chicken or they are cutlets.
  • Cooking times will vary from 15-30 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the shredded Monterey Jack cheese and the bacon and top and broil for a few minutes to melt the cheese.
