Monterey Chicken is my new favorite chicken dish. All of the ingredients taste awesome together! I love anything that has bacon and cheese, but the addition of barbeque sauce, green onions, tomatoes, and chiles took this chicken to a whole new level. What a fabulous combination! I made it when my parents were here visiting and everyone, including the kids, loved it! I always plan out a menu when my family comes. I had a huge bag of chicken from Costco, so I went on a search for something new to make with it and came across this amazing recipe for Monterey Chicken at Bakerlady.
