Anniversary Chicken

Tonight I went a little Pinterest crazy trying to find something to make my family before I head back to Grad School. I stumbled across this recipe and my Dad sounded intrigued so I had to try it. It has a fairly easy prep and is an inexpensive meal. It was about an hour prep for me. I'd never chopped green onions before so I used this video to make sure I did it right.

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce (or 1/3 cup if too salty)
1/2 cup ranch dressing
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 green onions, chopped
1/2 (3 ounce) can bacon bits

(Preheat oven to 350 degrees.    
Step 1: In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and add chicken breasts.
         Saute 4 to 5 minutes each side, until lightly browned. (I lightly seasoned my chicken with cayenne pepper).
Step 2: Place browned chicken breasts in a 9x13 inch baking dish.
Step 3: Brush with Teriyaki sauce and spoon on ranch dressing. 
Step 4: Sprinkle with cheese, green onions and bacon bits. 
Step 5: Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear. 
I served with Mashed potatoes and green beans. Super yummy and the family loved it.

one of my favorites! I gotta recommend the low sodium Teriyaki sauce. Better for you and in my opinion taste better.
