  • 4 (5 ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves

  • 1 cup teriyaki marinade sauce

  • ½ pound bacon

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 small onion, cut into long slices

  • 1 small green bell pepper, cut into thin strips

  • 1 (8 ounce) package fresh mushrooms, coarsely chopped

  • 4 slices mozzarella cheese


  1. Marinate the chicken: Place chicken in a nonporous glass dish or bowl. Pour teriyaki marinade over chicken and toss to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Remove chicken from the marinade and place in a 9x13-inch baking dish. Reserve 1/3 cup marinade and discard the rest.

  4. Bake chicken in the preheated oven until cooked through and juices run clear, 20 to 30 minutes.

  5. Meanwhile, place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside.

  6. Melt butter in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Sauté onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms for about 3 to 5 minutes. Add reserved 1/3 cup marinade and simmer until soft. Drain and set onion mixture aside.

  7. Top baked chicken with bacon strips. Add onion mixture and top each breast with a slice of cheese. Bake until cheese is melted and bubbly, another 10 to 15 minutes.
