Hickory Chicken

This is one of our easy family favorites. It is adapted from a restaurant Beth and I used to frequent (no longer in business). It makes a great meal to bring to someone who needs it. I think we need it tonight (with Amanda Scott and her kids visiting). I am heading home from work right now to make it.

4 chicken breasts
your favorite barbeque sauce (we are partial to Kraft Hickory Smoke)
1-2 cups grated mild cheddar cheese (to your liking)
4 slices of smoked baked ham from your deli
1 red tomato cubed
1/4 cup green onion tops sliced

Cook chicken breasts in your favorite way (I use my electic panini griddle but you can grill or pan fry it). Place grilled or cooked breasts in a casserole dish. Baste chicken breasts liberally with barbeque sauce. Sprinkle each breast with a layer of grated cheese. Next, put one slice of ham on each breast. Baste ham with more barbeque. Top each ham covred breast with the remaining cheese. Bake only until cheese is melted in a 375 degree oven -- 5 minutes tops. Plate the chicken and top with tomato and green onion. Serve with baked potatoes and steamed brocolli for a great combo.

Ronnie, what exactly do you mean..."we need it(with Amanda Scott & her kids here)". I'm kidding. I am so sure you didn't mean it like that...right? All
I know is that I and my children tanked on dinner. Emma kept saying "yum,yum in my tummy" cute, love it. Thanks for being such wonderful, gracious, fun-times hosts! We have had a fabulous time on our mini vaca. We love you guys and will miss you when we go home. Thanks for making us feel at home.
Love - Manda, Matthew, John, Emma, and Ava
