BBQ Bacon Swiss Grilled Chicken

Grilled chicken is a staple in our house. I think it is for almost everyone. Grilling chicken is an incredibly healthy and tasty way to cook it. But who wants plain grilled chicken every night? It can get a little boring, so I like to spice it up.

For these grilled chicken breasts, I added some of my favorite BBQ sauce, and then some thick sliced crispy bacon (I used a spicier black pepper bacon). To top it off, I melted a piece of Swiss down on top. But these were just for my son. I had to make ours even spicier.

So for our chicken breasts, I added the same ingredients, but also added some fresh sliced jalapeno peppers underneath the cheese.

These chicken breasts go great with a fresh salad as shown, but would also be wonderful in a sandwich with some fries on the side.

I added this along with 4 more great grilled chicken recipes you can find here on the Best Grilled Chicken Recipes page at


BBQ Bacon Swiss Grilled Chicken


1/4 cup sliced jalapeño or serrano peppers (optional)
1/4 cup BBQ sauce
4 slices swiss cheese
4 slices thick cut bacon, cooked crisp
2 teaspoons grill seasoning
2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts


Preheat grill. Place chicken breasts on a cutting board and top with saran wrap or parchment paper. Use a heavy skillet or meat mallet to pound chicken breasts to an even thickness. Cut each breast in half so you have 4 chicken breasts.

Add grill seasoning to both sides of chicken breasts. Place chicken on grill and cook until done, about 15 - 20 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the chicken breast has reached 165 degrees.

When chicken is done, brush the top of each breast with BBQ sauce. Then top with bacon, peppers if desired, and then swiss cheese.

Tent breasts with aluminum foil. Continue to grill for 2 - 3 minutes, or until cheese has melted.

Serve with a fresh salad, or as a sandwich.
