That’s what happened to us, again, with this chicken. We’d planned to cook this on the outdoor grill, but due to the pouring rain I used the indoor grill instead. I think this would have been much better if it had the extra char and flavor from the grill, but it was still really good. As soon as I saw the recipe, I knew we’d love it; we’re suckers for anything barbecued, and pepper-jack cheese is one of our favorites. Next time I think I’ll incorporate bacon into this in some way, because as we all know, everything is better with bacon. I'll definitely make this again this summer, and hopefully the rain will let up long enough for me to cook it on the grill as it was intended!
Next week I’ll share the creamy peas and cheddar biscuits I made to go with this chicken. Those are both great recipes, so be sure to check back!
Grilled BBQ Pepper-Jack Chicken
source: slightly adapted from Eat at Home
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
Grill seasoning to taste
4 pepper-jack cheese slices
1. Season both sides of chicken with grill seasoning. Grill the chicken until it's nearly done, then baste with BBQ sauce. Continue cooking until chicken is completely cooked through.
2. Top each chicken breast with a slice of cheese, letting it melt before removing the chicken from the grill.
