Ingredients

  • 4 Medium Chicken Breasts, (about 1.5 Pounds)
  • 1 Cup Shredded Cheese (I used Colby Jack)
  • 1/2 - 3/4 Cup Bacon Pieces I use these
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a 2 quart dish, place thawed chicken breasts.
  • Top with cheese and bacon.
  • Sprinkle with garlic salt.
  • Bake, uncovered, for approximately 40 minutes, depending on the thickness of your chicken breasts.

Notes

The cook time will vary a large amount according to how thick the chicken breasts are and whether or not they are frozen.
 
If you cook them from frozen, I would recommend allowing 1.5 - 2 hours of bake time.
 
I would recommend using a Meat Thermometer to make sure the chicken is an internal temperature of 160-165.
