I know what I’m about to say is considered blasphemy to my husband…but I really don’t like steak. It’s not a red meat thing, since I love burgers and ground beef, I just don’t enjoy steak at all. So anytime my husband and I would go to Long Horn, I’d always order the Rocky Road Chicken. This dish was a delicious combination of savory BBQ sauce, diced bacon, cheddar cheese, and diced tomatoes (which I did not use below). It’s a pretty basic recipe, so I decided to use this recipe to jazz up the BBQ sauce with some seasonings.
I’m so excited…on Sunday my husband and I are leaving for a short retreat down to Hammock Beach Resort in Palm Coast, FL. We definitely deserve the rest and relaxation and I’m really looking forward to just ‘checking out’ for a few days and only focus on resting by the pool, and having a fruity cocktail in hand. There is a seafood/steak grill and an Italian place we’ll try when we’re there, and I’m really hoping the food is good! We’ll be bringing some snacks for breakfast and I’ll be bringing some of my own cocktail ingredients for either mimosa’s or for happy hour, perhaps both!
-1/2 teaspoon onion powder
-1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/4 teaspoon black pepper
-1/4 teaspoon salt
-1/3 cup BBQ sauce
-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
-1/3 cup diced tomatoes (optional)
1. Cook bacon until crispy, dice.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine the BBQ sauce, paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, and salt. Set aside a small amount for after chicken is cooked. Baste chicken with BBQ mixture and grill over medium heat for 6-8 minutes per side, or until fully cooked.
3. Top cooked chicken with some of the BBQ that was set aside, shredded cheese, bacon, and optional tomatoes. Serve immediately.
