Grilled Herbed Chicken Fillets with Monterey Jack Cheese

Michael's picture

Need something simple for dinner? In a hurry? Here's a quick and easy meal. All it takes is a couple of boneless chicken breasts, some seasonings, and Monterey Jack cheese.

These can be part of any low-carb diet plan. They taste great!

Ingredients

  • Two boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced into fillets
  • Thin sliced Monterey Jack cheese (enough to cover each fillet)
  • Pappy's Seasoning (or use whatever you like)
  • Oil for cooking: we use a tablespoon of bacon drippings but you can use olive oil, butter, ghee, etc.

Preparation

  • Heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat
  • Lightly season both sides of the chicken and place them in the skillet
  • Cook for about 4 minutes on one side, or until golden brown
  • Turn over and cook for a few minutes on the second side until chicken is almost cooked through (almost completely firm)
  • Lay strips of Monterey Jack cheese over the chicken, then reduce heat to medium, cover with a lid to retain heat and cook until chicken is cooked through (about 2-3 minutes)
  • Remove from heat and serve

Alternatives

Try sprinkling crumbled bacon bits (fresh, homemade) over the cheese during the last few minutes of cooking.

Leftovers? Chill in refrigerator, slice remainder into small strips and use them to make a Chicken Caesar salad. We just did this and it was fantastic.
