Smoky Baked Chicken

Smoky Baked Chicken

1 tablespoon olive oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
2 teaspoons mesquite seasoning
1/2 (8 ounce) package shredded Mexican cheese blend
1/3 cup real bacon bits
1/3 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle-flavored hot sauce (such as Tabasco® Chipotle Pepper Sauce)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking dish with aluminum foil; brush with olive oil.

Season chicken breasts with mesquite seasoning and place in the prepared baking dish.

Mix cheese blend, bacon bits, green onions, mayonnaise, and chipotle-flavored hot sauce together in a small bowl. Spread mixture evenly over chicken.

Bake in the preheated oven until chicken is no longer pink in the center and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center reads at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C), about 16 minutes. Turn off oven; leave chicken inside for 2 minutes. Turn on broiler; broil chicken on low until topping is golden, 2 to 3 minutes.
