{Pin}Tastic Friday - Monterey Chicken

Its {Pin}tastic Friday.  I love Fridays.  The weekend is here.  I get to spend time with my family and sometimes get a little time to myself, in my craft room.  I found this pin through a friend.  And I am sure glad I did.  It is delicious.  Every person in my family loves it.  And that is saying something.  All of my kids are picky.  There are very few things they agree on.  This is one of them.  The first time I made it I served it over a bed of spinach.  Talk about yummy.  It was like a healthy salad.  The second time I made garlic mashed potatoes.  The kids prefered the potatoes.  Who wouldn't.  Either way it is a {Pin}tastic dinner especially for summer.  I hope your family enjoys it as much as mine.
The original source for this recipe is over at All Things Simple.  Lots of goodies over there check them out sometime. 
And noe, what you have been waiting for...... Monterey Chicken!

MONTEREY CHICKEN4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/4 c. bar-b-que sauce ( I use Bull's Eye)
1/4 c. real bacon bits
1 c. colby and jack cheese, shredded
1 14 oz. can Rotel tomatoes, drained (canned with green chilies added)
sliced green onions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Pound out chicken breasts to flatten. Season with pepper. Grill chicken until no long pink (we used our George Foreman grill) and place on baking sheet covered with foil. Top each chicken breast with one tablespoon bar-b-que sauce, 1/4 c. cheese, 1/4 c. tomatoes, green onions and one tablespoon of bacon bits. Place in oven and bake until cheese is melted (about 5 minutes).
This is Kim's reciped from her site.  I used a different BBQ sauce.  All the rest is the same.
