|Ranch dressing||1/2 cup|
|Cheddar cheese, shredded||1 cup|
|Green onions, sliced||2|
- Step 1: Preheat the grill to medium-high heat. In a bowl, mix the ranch dressing with salt and pepper to taste. Place the chicken breasts in a shallow dish and pour the ranch mixture over them. Turn the chicken to coat it evenly. Let it marinate for at least 30 minutes.
- Step 2: Cook bacon in a skillet over medium heat until crispy. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels. Crumble or chop into small pieces and set aside.
- Step 3: Grill the chicken for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C). During the last few minutes of cooking, sprinkle the shredded cheddar cheese over the chicken and close the lid to allow the cheese to melt.
- Step 4: Remove the chicken from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Garnish with crumbled bacon and sliced green onions. Serve hot and enjoy!
