Cheesy BBQ Chicken Sandwich with Bacon

4 years ago

You can easily have this sandwich on the table in less than 15 minutes. Other than the awesome combination of cheese, bacon and BBQ, that's definitely a bonus. Especially after a long day at the office/with the kids/at school, planning out a lengthy dinner is probably the furthest thing from your mind. Plus adults and kids will both like this. Enjoy!

  • 6 slices bacon, cut in half
  • 3 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half (or 6 thin chicken breasts)
  • BBQ sauce
  • Cheese
  • Lettuce, shredded
  • 6 hamburger buns

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.

Cook bacon in a large skillet. Remove and drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

Remove all but 2 tbsp. bacon grease from the pan. Add chicken and cook until done, flipping halfway through.

Remove chicken from pan. Spread BBQ sauce on both sides of each piece. Place on a baking sheet and top with cheese and two pieces of bacon.

Place in the oven for 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

Sprinkle lettuce on one side of the bun and spread a thin layer of BBQ sauce on the other side. Top lettuce with a piece of chicken and serve immediately.
