Barbecued Bundles

8 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
8 ( 1/2 x 1 x 1-inch) cubes American cheese
16 slices bacon (about 3/4 pound)
1/2 cup barbecue sauce

Preheat grill or broiler. Place cheese in center of breast lengthwise. Fold chicken around cheese to form a bundle and wrap 2 slices bacon crisscross around chicken. Secure with wooden picks. Grill on oiled rack 5 to 6 inches over hot coals. If broiling, place in shallow pan and broil.

Grill or broil for 30 to 40 minutes, turning every 15 minutes until chicken is tender. Brush with barbecue sauce the last 15 minutes of cook time.

Serves 8.
