Pioneer Woman Ranch Style Chicken


Holy Cow! This was good chicken!! Sweet & tangy and topped with bacon & cheese - what's not to like?!?!  Simple to make. I let it marinate overnight in the honey mustard mixture and it makes for a quick and easy weeknight meal.  All my favorite things!!  I love to make this during the week, but it is worthy of company.  I will be making this again!

  1. This is very similar to a recipe that I make. I grill my cheicken breaasts, then put them on a baking sheet and put one tbsp of BBQ sauce on them, 3 or 4 thin slices ham and then a large slice of ColbyJack cheese. Bake until cheese is melted. Kids love it.

  2. I grill the chicken on my George Foreman Grill. Then, I put them on a baking sheet and top with the cheese and bacon, and put them in the oven for about 5 minutes or so. Just long enough to melt the cheese. This has been a big hit with my family who normally don't care for chicken. Soooo glad it's so easy too. :)
