Monterey Chicken

Source: Taste of Home

This was delicious! Easy and includes my favorite ingredients. We put ours between a toasted bun and it was the perfect chicken sandwich.

6 bacon strips
6 chicken breasts (4 oz each)
1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. red wine vinegar
1/4 c. soy sauce
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. pepper
6 thin slices onion
6 thin slices tomato
6 thin slices avocado
6 slices Monterey Jack (I used pepper jack)
6 hamburger buns (optional)

Cook bacon, drain. Flatten chicken to even thickness. In large resealable bag, combine oil, vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, salt, oregano, and pepper; add chicken. Seal bag, marinate for at least 30 minutes.

Drain and discard marinade. Grill chicken uncovered, over medium heat for 6 minutes on each side. Move chicken to edge of grill. Top each with a slice of bacon, onion, tomato, avocado, and cheese. Cover and grill 4-6 minutes longer until cheese is melted.
