Dairy Style Spring Break

I haven't been on spring break like most of the families in our area, but I did attend the Dairy Farmers of America Annual Meeting in Kansas City at the beginning of the week. It was great to see friends from across the country, receive updated information about our dairy cooperative and sample a variety of delicious  dairy products--especially Elsie's Borden cheese!

  You can probably guess that one of my favorite activities is to go say hello to Elsie. It's hard to decide which one of us has the best smile!

Even though Elsie stays busy making visits around the country, you can find a great selection of recipes on Friends of Elsie. Saturday night I'm planning  to celebrate the end of spring break (that I didn't have), by baking Elsie's  Easy Cheesy Honky Tonk Chicken.
Easy Cheesy Honky Tonk Chicken
 4 slices Borden Applewood Bacon Cheddar Singles Sensations
 4 boneless and skinless chicken breasts
 1 cup Barbecue sauce
 2/3 cup French Fried Onions (150mL can)
 4 slices of crispy fried bacon
 4 tablespoons sour cream
 9 jalapeno slices (optional)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Place chicken in a glass baking dish.
Pour 1 cup of barbecue sauce over the chicken.
Bake for 35-45 minutes or until liquid runs clear.
While chicken is baking, pan fry bacon until extra crisp. Drain grease and set bacon to the side.
When chicken is donem place one slice of Applewood Bacon Cheddar Single on each chicken breast. Then top with a slice of bacon. Sprinkle with French fried onion.
Place chicken back into the oven for about 5 to 7 minutes until the cheese melts.
After you take the chicken out of the oven, put a 1 tablespoon dollop of sour cream on to each chicken breast and then 2 slices of jalapenos on to each dollop of sour cream.
Happy Spring!
