Pan Seared Chicken with Bacon, Cheese, and Caramelized Onions

YUM!  This is probably one of the best chicken recipes ever!  I mean, what's not to like?  The chicken is lightly seasoned and seared in bacon grease, then topped with cheese, caramelized onions and bacon.  Super delish!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-8 strips of smoked bacon, cut into chunks
-4 chicken thighs, skin-on, bone-in
-2 tsp salt
-2 tsp lemon-pepper
-1 large onion, halved and sliced
-1/4 cup packed brown sugar
-1/2 cup shredded cheese (Colby-Monterey Jack, mozzarella, cheddar, etc)
Directions:
Cook bacon chunks in large skillet until nice and crisp.  Using a slotted spoon, remove bacon chunks onto paper towel lined plate. Turn the heat on medium-low.
Season chicken on both sides with salt and lemon pepper. Place, skin side down, into skillet with bacon drippings.  Sear until chicken is golden brown, with crispy skin, and cooked through.  Remove chicken from skillet and place on plate lined with paper towels.
The skillet should still have plenty of bacon and chicken drippings.  To it, add the onion slices and brown sugar.  Mix and cook until onions are nicely caramelized-about 10 minutes.
To serve, place a  piece of chicken on a plate and top immediately with some of the onion, then shredded cheese and bacon chunks.  Enjoy!
