Monterey Chicken

Are you all excited that summer is right around the corner?  I know we are!!  I’m excited for the fun summer days that end with a late summer nights.   Those summer nights where the temperature outside is perfect, the parents all sit around having a good time and the kids are running around and around way past there bed time and when bed time comes they simply pass out as they crawl in to bed.

The next best thing is grilling season is finally able to happen!!    During the summer I bet we grill at least 2 times a week.   Its perfect way to cook when the temperatures reach 100+  then my house stays nice and cool and im not spending a lot of time missing out on the fun outside.

This  Monterey Chicken Recipe is one of our favorite’s to make.  Its full of flavor and its simple to make.   It puts a great twist on the normal Barbecue Chicken recipe.   Your entire family will fall in love with this Monterey Chicken.


How can you really go wrong with cheese and bacon on top!

Just make sure you watch your grill.    Because my 2 year old had fun turning the dial to high and slightly charred the beginning of my Monterey Chicken, luckily I was able to save dinner!
