Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese , shredded
  • 2 tablespoons dry Ranch seasoning
  • 2-6 tablespoons bread crumbs with Italian seasoning
  • 4 tablespoons bacon crumbled

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl combine mayonnaise, garlic, dry Ranch seasoning and cheddar cheese.

  3. Lay each breast on a cutting board, cover with plastic wrap and tenderize until ½ inch thick. Repeat with each breast. Transfer to a baking dish lightly coated with cooking spray.
  4. Season each chicken breast with fine sea salt and freshly ground pepper. Divide mayonnaise mixture evenly on each chicken breast, spreading out to the edges.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and top each breast with bread crumbs, pressing down lightly to “catch”. The size of your chicken breasts will determine the amount of bread crumbs you use.
  6. Return to oven and bake for additional 15 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked. Cooking time might even be less depending on the size of your chicken breasts.
  7. Remove, top with bacon and serve.
