What are the three best things in the food world? Bacon, BBQ, and cheese. (This is just fact and science, friends.) We've combined the two of the best things and placed them on a succulent chicken breast as it beautifully cooks, and saved the drizzle of the BBQ for the delicious end. The best things in life come in threes. (We've also got ranch seasoning on the vegetables! Science says you must love this meal.)

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |
  • Seafood 145° F |
  • Chicken 165° F |
  • Ground Beef 160° F |
  • Ground Turkey 165° F |
  • Ground Pork 160° F
  1. 1

    Start the Potatoes

    Halve potatoes. Cut halves into 1/4" half-moons.

    Place potatoes on prepared baking sheet and toss with 1 Tbsp. olive oil and seasoning blend. Massage oil and seasoning into potatoes.

    Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven, 15 minutes.

    Remove from oven. Potatoes will finish cooking in a later step.

    While potatoes roast, prepare chicken.

  2. 2

    Prepare Chicken and Crisp Bacon

    Pat chicken breasts dry.

    Cover chicken with plastic wrap and pound with a heavy object to an even 1/4" thickness.

    Remove plastic wrap. Season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Line a plate with a paper towel.

    Spread bacon on towel-lined plate and microwave until crisp, 1-2 minutes.

  3. 3

    Finish the Potatoes

    Carefully, flip potatoes. Baking sheet will be hot! Use a utensil.

    Add peas and spread into a single layer. Roast again until peas are heated through and potatoes are golden brown and tender, 10-15 minutes.

    While potatoes and peas roast, cook chicken.

  4. 4

    Cook the Chicken

    Place a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.

    Add chicken to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned on one side, 2-3 minutes.

    Lower heat to medium. Flip chicken, and top evenly with bacon and cheese. Cover, and cook until cheese is melted and chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 3-5 minutes.

    Remove from burner.
