Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes 

Total Time: 35 minutes 

Yield: 4-6 servings


  • 6 strips bacon, cooked according to package instructions
  • 1 pound chicken thighs, boneless and skinless
  • 1 pound thin-cut chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • lemon pepper seasoning, to taste
  • 1-1 ¼ cups barbeque sauce of choice (sweeter for best results)
  • 1-2 bag(s) tortilla chips
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, freshly grated
  • 2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, freshly grated 


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°.
  2. In a medium-skillet, prepare the bacon according to package instructions, place on paper towel to absorb excess grease, and set aside to cool. After a few minutes, chop into small pieces.
  3. Prepare one medium red onion by dicing and setting aside. 
  4. Meanwhile, on a rimmed metal baking sheet, arrange the chicken, drizzle with olive oil and use tongs to toss and coat. Season both sides with the lemon pepper seasoning before sliding the pan onto the middle rack of your oven. Bake the chicken for 18 to 20 minutes or until the chicken is fully cooked.
  5. Once cooked, place the chicken on a cutting board to cool for around 5 minutes. Then, use forks to shred the chicken and place shredded pieces in a large bowl.
  6. Pour in 1/2 to 3/4 cup of barbecue sauce and toss to coat.
  7. Reduce the heat of your oven to 325°.
  8. On a rimmed metal baking sheet, arrange chips in a single layer. Top with a light sprinkle of cheese before scattering the barbecue chicken over top. Then, top with more cheese, red onion and chopped bacon.
  9. Drizzle a little extra barbeque sauce overtop before sliding the nacho onto the middle rack and bake for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the barbecue sauce is caramelized.
  10. Sprinkle it with cilantro and enjoy!
