Bacon Cheeseburger Chicken (by Cheesy Diva)

*Pic from the blog of choice*

Helloooooooo Diva Followers! Long time, no see! I'm back in action, I swear!
This month, my recipe is coming to you straight from the blog of Kevin & Amanda. I randomly found them through my endless blog stalking that takes place...daily.

Super easy, and SUPER delicious. I have made a few of the measurements smaller due to all diva families being so small. However, feel free to follow Kevin and Amanda's recipe for the true measurements if need be.

1 ½ tbsp olive oil
1 ½ tbsp butter
3 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, split
¼ cup teriyaki sauce
1/3 cup Ranch dressing
¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
¼ lb bacon (or bacon bits)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large skillet, heat oil & butter over medium-high heat.
Add chicken breasts, and sauté 4 to 5 minutes each side, until lightly browned.
Place browned chicken breasts in a 9×13 inch baking dish.
Cover with teriyaki sauce and ranch dressing.
Sprinkle with cheese and top with bacon bits.
Bake for 25 to 35 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink and juices run clear.

Loaded Brownies (from Dessert Diva)

I begged for this recipe after tasting them at one of my best friend's family functions. Apparently, her sister-in-law is famous for them, and I can certainly attest to their deliciousness. I took some to the other Divas at our March Supper Club, and my husband, who is very picky about sweets (I know...weird, right?) has been devouring them after dinner each night. I hope you think they are just as delicious (and easy!) as I do!

1 box chewy fudge brownie mix
Chocolate syrup
1 bag semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 bag milk chocolate chips

Prepare the brownie mix according to the package directions, substituting chocolate syrup for half of the water called for. Mix into the batter 1/2 of each bag of chocolate chips. Bake the brownies according to the package directions. Remove from oven; dump the remaining chocolate chips on top. At this point, you can either just let them sit on top of the brownies or you can run a knife over the top to create an icing. Once the brownies are somewhat cool, pop them in the refrigerator to allow the chips/icing to harden. Finally, cut 'em, eat 'em and drool over 'em!
