Fall is just around the corner and, for most of us, the pace of life has picked up its pace. This calls for dinners that are quick, easy and delicious. And, as the weather turns cooler, I’m thinking comfort food and this BBQ Chicken Bacon Bake checks off all the boxes.

A few favorite easy dinner recipes are essential to have in your arsenal this time of year. My favorites include my 30-minute Taco Pasta Bake, Cheesy Chicken Ravioli Lasagna and Chicken Apple Sausage Sheet Pan dinner. I am definitely adding this BBQ Chicken Bacon Bake to that list.

I mean, what could be wrong with a chicken dish that has bacon on it? You know the saying, everything is better with bacon, and this recipe is no exception. The bacon and cheese definitely make the dish. I did try to make this a bit healthier by using low-fat cheese and a BBQ sauce without all the extra sugar and fillers. The chicken is a good lean protein and baking it saves some calories as well. And it’s gluten-free!

      So glad they liked it! I made it this weekend since the rain kept us from grilling out. At least we got our BBQ flavor. 🙂
