1. The chicken breasts will be to thick so you will need to split them in half – To do this; Place the chicken breast flat on your cutting board Place your hand not holding the knife on top of the breast palm side down and apply pressure down onto the breast. Take your knife and place it about the middle of the breast and slowly start cutting down the center of the breast until all the way through. 2. After the chicken is cut thinner it is time to pound it down to a thin even consistency so you will get even cooking Place each piece of chicken on the cutting board and cover with a piece of plastic wrap Taking your flat iron or meat pounder flatten each breast out 3. Place the breasts into a mixing bowl 4. To the bowl of chicken add Canola Oil – enough to coat all the chicken Ground Black Peppercorn – 1 Tbs Garlic Flake – 2 tsp 5. Mix the ingredients well – making sure all the chicken is coated 6. Remove the chicken 1 piece at a time and put it in another bowl that contains the Panko crumbs


7. Set up your grill for indirect heat (hot coals on one side of the grill and no coals on the other side of the grill)


8. Place the griddle directly over the hot coals to heat up 9. Place the bacon on the side of the grill that has no coals to start cooking 10. After the griddle is hot. It is time to sear the chicken. Place the chicken on the hot griddle and sear on each side for 2 minutes 11. When the chicken is seared move it to the side of the grill with no coals and move the bacon on to the griddle. This will let the chicken stay moist while it finishes cooking. 12. Take the bacon off the griddle and set aside after a few minutes 13. Cut your onion into slices and place on the hot griddle 14. After 5 minutes flip your chicken over to finish cooking 15.
