  • 4 slices bacon cooked
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 lb of thin cut boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 6 tablespoons sugar-free bbq sauce
  • 2/3 cup Cheddar Cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup Monterey Jack Cheese shredded
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper


  • In a hot oven-safe skillet, add olive oil and butter. (I use a cast-iron skillet)
  • Season chicken generously with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  • Sear chicken on each side for about 4 minutes on medium/high, then cover with a lid and reduce heat to low.
  • Simmer until chicken is cooked all the way through.
  • Spoon sugar-free BBQ sauce
    on top of each chicken breast.
  • Divide the cooked bacon evenly and place it on top of each chicken breast.
  • Sprinkle cheddar cheese on top of the bacon.
  • Finish off the chicken with Monterey Jack Cheese and sprinkle parsley on top.
  • Turn oven to broil and place skillet in the oven on top rack.
  • Broil for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. (make sure skillet is oven safe)



The sugar alcohols from the Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener in the homemade sugar-free BBQ sauce are not included in the nutritional information since most subtract to calculate net carbs.
