  • 2 chicken breasts boneless and skinless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon seasoning salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce
  • 5 pieces bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 1/2 cup Monterey jack cheese shredded
  • 1 tomato chopped
  • fresh parsley


  1. Add the bacon to the air fryer and cook at 370 degrees for 9 minutes. Flip the bacon after that time and then cook for 2 more minutes. (may need to cook longer if it’s not completely cooked) Once the bacon has cooled down after cooking, crumble it up and set it aside to use later.
  2. Grab the chicken breasts and butterfly them to make four pieces. They need to be about 1/4 inch thick. (If they’re thicker than that, you can use a rolling pin to flatten them out!)
  3. Season the chicken. Once they’re cut and flat, season the chicken breast with salt and pepper, oil, and seasoning.
  4. Add the seasoned chicken to the air fryer and cook at 370 degrees for 6 minutes. Flip the chicken once that time has passed and bake for an additional 6 minutes.
  5. Once the chicken has cooked, add the barbecue sauce to the chicken. (about 1 tablespoon per each piece of chicken) Add the cheese and bacon on top and be sure to divide equally.
  6. Put the chicken back into the air fryer and bake for another 2 minutes at 360 degrees.
  7. Sprinkle on parsley and chopped tomatoes – enjoy!
