Bacon, lettuce, and tomato form a delicious combo made famous by a classic sandwich that is so cool that people call it by its initials - the original, the crowd-favorite, the B.L.T. Imagine taking those ingredients and using them to top a crispy chicken breast with a bonus touch of melted cheddar. Gamechanger! Yes, the chicken is served on a bed of lettuce tossed with creamy dressing, but somehow “salad” just doesn’t do it justice - the flavors are smoky and bold and fresh and satisfying - and the best part? It’s a snap to prepare and it’ll make your kitchen smell amazing!

"I’ve been a cook and writer my whole life. I wrote my first original recipe and mailed it to a TV show when I was four years old. I was lucky enough to have been raised by one of those legendary Southern grandmothers who cooked with great skill and no recipes. Even when my cooking veered drastically away from Southern for a few years, she was always open to what I prepared and would taste anything."Learn More...
