I usually serve the chicken with french fries, potato wedges or a baked potato.

My husband and I enjoyed this a lot. I changed the prep. a bit. Instead of seasoning and baking I went through all steps and baked. I didn't use a whole bottle of BBQ sauce--I just spooned it on. I think next time I'll cut back on the Italian Seasoning. It didn't seem to go with the other ingredients. Read More

Way too much barbeque sauce. It overwhelmed the taste of the chicken. The barbeque sauce needs to be cooked into the chicken not just poured on and heated. Read More

My husband really liked this but I have to admit that I really don't like the combination of cheese and BBQ sauce together. We compromised at a 4-star rating. I know this will be used in our house again....lunches for the hubby. Thanks for posting. Read More

Completely awesome. The easiest and yummiest way to fix chicken. Works best with sweeter BBQ sauces like Sweet Baby Rays. Read More

I loved this recipe. I cooked the chicken on the grill on foil and basted with the barbeque sauce (Using alot less) Then topped it with the ham and cheese at the end. No clean up! My husband wants be to put it in the weekly rotation! Read More

My husband could not stop raving about this! His reaction typically would resulted in my giving this 5 stars but I made a few changes to the recipe that I felt were necessary to improve it. I used a super-spicy seasoning mix in place of the Italian seasoning (since I just couldn't see how that would work with the BBQ sauce) nixed the pepper added a little salt and only used 2 tbs. of BBQ sauce per chicken breast (which was more than enough). I also used smoked mozzerella in place of the Monterey Jack because that's what I had on hand. Otherwise though I made it precisely as written and my husband is already asking when we're going to be eating the leftovers! I thought it was good as well (and the chicken was very moist!) but nothing phenomenal--that BBQ/meat combo must be a guy-thing!: ) Read More

This is a great chicken recipe. The ingredients kindof remind me of a chicken cordon blue just with BBQ sauce. The results were fantastic! I used a sweet Memphis style BBQ sauce that really gave the chicken a nice flavor. Super easy to make and absolutely wonderful! Read More

Pretty good. I didn't use the italian seasoning though. I substituted seasoning salt and used hickory flavored bbq sauce...and coated each piece of chicken individually prior to baking. Next time I'll try this with a spicy bbq sauce and pepperjack cheese. Definately worth making again! Read More
