How to Make It

First, preheat grill to 350º F degrees.
Then wrap each chicken breast with a slice of bacon, stretching it to ensure wrapped tightly. If needed, secure with a toothpick.
Place chicken onto the grill and grill until cooked throughout. To be done, chicken should register 165º F when measured with an internal meat probe.
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.
Remove from grill and serve immediately.

  1. It’s so simple ! I’d have to say my favorite summer cheesy dish is shredded zucchini sautéed in butter and olive oil till it just begins to brown, then add a generous handful of grated Parmesan, and freshly ground black pepper. That’s it !

  2. I love Cracker Barrel Cheese! I haven’t seen their aged cheddar so I will have to go look for it. Plus, I love your simple grilling recipe. I’m going to give it a try. =)

  3. I love fruit and cheese when it is too hot to cook. I also add cheese to salads when making a meatless meal.

  4. I know this doesn’t sound like a ‘summer dish’ but hey, it’s yummy anytime of the year…..King Ranch Casserole is what came to mind.

  5. I guess this is more of a side dish but I’ve been obsessed with buffalo chicken dip with extra cheddar this summer…. ah pregnancy cravings!

  6. Robyn: Maybe I’m missing the obvious but I have no idea what is meant by the “Promotion Prompt” that they’re requiring us to enter. I’m trying to use the alternate method for my second entry, have filled out my information, except what the heck is the “Promotion Prompt”?

    Thanks!

  7. My favorite cheesy summer dish would be grilled cheese pizza with fresh slices tomato and garlic, basil.

  8. My favorite simmer cheesy dish is a zucchini, squash, and tomato scallop. So good with fresh summer veggies!!

  9. Wowza! That looks so good!

    My favorite cheesy summer dish is just a platter of cheese, fruit and crackers. We do that a lot for summer lunches.:)

  10. Ummm, I’m drooling. My favorite cheesy dish is cheese and fruit. Can’t resist it.

  11. My favorite way to eat cheese in the summer..is stuffed into a burger before it is thrown on the grill…oh my cheesy gooey goodness…love a burger stuffed with melty cheese!!
    Faith

  12. My mother’s cheesy potatoes- cubes drenched in sour cream, cheddar cheese, and mushroom soup- extra cheddar on top!

  13. Crackle Barrel cheese has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. My favorite summer way of making a meal from Cracker Barrel is slicing slightly thick slices of cheese and placing them atop slightly thick slices of crusty bread. We eat this for lunch often. No muss, no fuss, just taste, texture, and fun.

  14. I can’t wait to try it. I will definately share with my family and friends, readers. I have rec’d so much bacon as gifts from my family, this is perfect! The sauce sounds yummy too!

  15. This recipe looks amazing, and so simple. I’m going to try it this weekend.
    We love Cracker Barrel, the cute gifts and candy and the amazing food.

  16. I like 2 soft Greek pitas turned into cheese quesadillas, or cheese nachos with olives & no-fat refried beans, both nuked (so my already roasting hot kitchen from direct afternoon sunlight won’t get any hotter)!

  17. My summertime- actually year round- favorite is a great sharp cheese drizzled with balsamic glaze…yummmmmm!

  18. I think my favorite summer cheese dish must be a delectable cheeseburger.

    My mouth is sufficiently watering right now….I can smell and taste this right through the screen lol. I would so love to make this but sadly my apartments don’t allow us to have BBQ pits. And guess what, I’m in Texas. Yes, I know, it is sacrilegious for a Texan not to have a pit. I’m crying inside. How would I go about cooking this in the oven? Again, I know it is sacrilegious lol. Thanks for posting this and for the giveaway. Best of luck everyone.

  20. WOW this looks good!

    Um, my favorite cheesy summer dish is the same year round! Mac and cheese haha

  21. An antipasto chopped salad with a light oil/vinegar dressing. I marinate the mozzarella balls in olive oil and herbs before adding them to the salad. Thanks for the giveaway.

  22. I’ll eat just about anything with bacon and cheese on it. This looks delicious. I can’t wait to try it.

  23. Favorite summer food with cheese…lettuce salad with freshly grated sharp ceddar and white cheddar..Must be freshly grated…the best!!

  24. I my favorite cheesy dish has to be anything thing with cheese and potatoes such as scalloped potatoes or a cheesy hashbrown casserole. Yum!

  25. I love margarita pizza with fresh mozzarella cheese, Roma tomatoes and garlic with a little olive oil. Thanks for the chance to enter.

    When it’s scorching hot outside, my favorite dinner is some sharp cheddar slices, big, fat, juicy grapes, and some baguette slices with olive oil for dipping … it satisfies all my favorite cravings 🙂

    My favorite cheesy snack is Buffalo Chicken Cheese Dip, its so simple to make yet feels indulgent and the whole family love it.

  35. Mine would have to be macaroni and cheese. I love this dish and eat it year round and it’s always a hit with my family.

  39. My favorite cheesy summer dish is Amish macaroni salad- loaded with cheddar cheese chunks and grated parm. Yum- I could eat it as a snack, a side dish or a meal lol

  40. I love to sauté zucchini and squash and melt cheese over it. Stir in a bit of marinara sauce, and it’s a winner!

    I added a little cumin and smoked paprika to the chicken as the husband loves all things spicy and it was very yummy. A great weeknight meal as it was on the table in no time. This recipe is definitely a keeper!
