Honey Mustard-and-Bacon Smothered Chicken

This is another recipe I got out of my new cookbook. It looks so bad but it's not, I promise. Here is my version of the recipe.

8 (6 oz) skinless, boneless chicken breast
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1T of smart balance spread (optional)
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup mustard (you can use prepared honey mustard)
8 cooked slices of turkey bacon (I broke each in half)
1/2 cup (2 oz) reduced fat shredded Mexican 4 cheese blend.

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Melt butter in large skillet and add chicken. Cook on medium high heat for 8 minutes on each side until done. Reduce heat to medium low and brush chicken with honey mustard and cook for about 2 minutes. Top each breast with 2 pieces of bacon and sprinkle with cheese. Cover and cook for 2 minutes until cheese melts. Enjoy. Q

I paired this with a nice Organic spring salad mix. Q
