As you know, I’m working with Cracker Barrel® to share easy entertaining ideas that highlight the high-quality, consistent deliciousness of Cracker Barrel® Cheddar cheese. When they asked me to develop a recipe, I knew I wanted to share a delicious BBQ chicken recipe that just knocks my socks off.

While any Cracker Barrel® Cheddar tastes delicious, I recommend Cracker Barrel® Aged Reserve Cheddar cheese for this recipe. The rich and creamy texture of the Aged Reserve Cheddar paired with the spicy, sweet and smokey flavor of the peach BBQ sauce is perfection on a plate!

The earthy sharpness of the Cracker Barrel® Aged Reserve Cheddar cheese really brings out the spicy kick of the BBQ sauce, bringing all of those spicy notes to the forefront for a perfect pairing.

BBQ Chicken with Bacon and Cheddar Recipe
BBQ Chicken with Bacon and Cheddar makes the perfect addition to your weeknight or weekend menu. BBQ chicken meets the perfect companions of bacon and cheddar in this family-favorite recipe.
Serves: 6
  • 6 chicken breasts
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 1 (10-ounce) package Cheddar cheese, sliced into about 18 – 24 slices
  • 1 recipe Peach BBQ sauce
  1. Preheat grill to 350º F degrees.
  2. Wrap each chicken breast with a slice of bacon, stretching it to ensure wrapped tightly. If needed, secure with a toothpick. Place chicken onto grill and grill until cooked throughout. Chicken should register 165º F when measured with an internal meat probe.
  3. Once chicken registers 165º F, spoon on peach BBQ sauce and lightly spread to cover. Then place three to four slices of Cheddar cheese on top of bbq sauce. Then, drizzle more bbq sauce on top of Cheddar cheese. Cook on grill about 3-5 more minutes to allow cheese to begin to melt.
  4. Remove from grill and serve immediately.
