Grilled Monterey Chicken

Servings 4 Serves


  • 4 slices turkey bacon
  • 4 plum tomatoes chopped, Roma
  • 4 6-oz. boneless skinless chicken breast halves
  • 2 ounces Monterey Jack cheese sliced
  • 1 cup shredded low fat sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 6 cups baby spinach


  • Preheat indoor or outdoor grill or oven broiler. Cook turkey bacon; cool, crumble and set aside. Chop tomatoes and set aside.
  • Grill chicken breast halves, turning to brown on both sides.
  • As soon as chicken comes off the grill, while it is still piping hot, top with a slice of Monterey Jack cheese, some crumbled bacon and chopped tomato; finally, sprinkle with shredded Cheddar cheese (the heat from the chicken will melt the cheeses and make this nice and gooey).
  • If you don’t get the cheese on the chicken in time to melt it, you can put it in the oven, under the broiler, for a few minutes.
  • Serve on a bed of baby spinach.
