Bacon Cheddar Chicken- Taste of Home Tuesday

How can you go wrong with bacon and cheese?  You can't, not at my house!   There are just some recipes that you know will be a hit with your family, and this was one of those.  I had all of the ingredients on hand except the green onions, so I substituted dried chives.   As written, it's a stove top to oven meal, but I had my oven in use for dessert.   I used my countertop grill, and it cut the cooking time down because both sides of the chicken get cooked at the same time.  To melt the cheese, I held the lid partially closed.  Both guys had seconds, so that sends it directly to the family favorites file.  Thank you so much to Trisha K for sharing her recipe!

On Tuesdays, I like to share what some of my other Taste of Home Volunteer Field Editors are making.   Shannon at Making the Most of Naptime made this amazing Rhubarb Berry Upside Down Cake, and I can't wait to give it a try!
