Grilled Bacon Chicken

So i found this recipe awhile back when trying to find something a little different to make for dinner. It was pretty tasty and extremely easy to make!

GRILLED BACON CHICKEN

6 slices bacon
1 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. olive oil (or vegetable oil if your like my family and don't really want to spend all that money on olive oil..even if it is healthier :-D)
6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (or chicken tenders work just as well, just plan on about 3 for each person)
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. pepper
1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


Cook bacon in a pan until crisp. Crumble and set aside. Pour the bacon grease out of the pan, but don't wipe out the pan. Add butter and oil to the pan. Saute the chicken in pan, turning once, until the chicken is cooked and not pink in the middle (5-10 minutes on each side). Put the chicken into an ungreased 12x8 cooking dish. Cook onion and garlic in the skillet until the onion is softened. Add in salt and pepper and crumbled bacon. Spoon over the top of the chicken, and then put shredded cheese on top of the chicken and bacon mixture. Bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes (or until cheese is melted)
