We took full advantage of the beautiful weather last weekend and grilled out every night. This chicken was our favorite out of everything we grilled. It was absolutely delicious!
This was inspired by my favorite chicken dish at Firebirds Restaurant. I love Firebirds' Smokehouse Chicken Sandwich and decided to make my own version at home. The verdict? Wonderful! We marinated the chicken in Lawry's Seasoned Salt marinade and topped it with BBQ sauce, bacon, sautéed mushrooms and smoked cheddar cheese. How can you go wrong with that combination?
4 chicken breast, pounded to an even thickness
1 bottle Lawry's Original Seasoned Salt marinade
8 slices thick cut apple-wood smoked bacon
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup smoked cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup BBQ sauce
Marinate the chicken in the Lawry's Original Seasoned Salt marinade for at least 30 minutes. The longer the better.
While the chicken is marinating, cook the bacon in a large skillet. Set aside. Reserve 2 Tablespoons of bacon fat. Sauté mushrooms in bacon fat until softened. Set aside.
Grill the chicken 12-15, minutes until done. You can also cook the chicken in a skillet on the stove if desired.
Preheat the broiler on your oven. Place cooked chicken on a rimmed baking sheet. Spread 1-2 Tbsp BBQ sauce on cooked chicken. Top with bacon, mushrooms and cheese. Broil until cheese is melted.
