I can't say it's the best looking sandwich I have ever made, but what I can say is that it's one of the best tasting ones I've had in a long time. I guess you truly can't go wrong with bacon and cheese, though, can you?
This is a fun way to jazz up a chicken sandwich or a BLT - however you look at it, you will not be sorry if you do make it!
Don't feel like grilling? No worries, bake or pan sear the chicken, it will still be good. Heck, use chicken tenders instead of breasts - it doesn't matter, cause it will still be good :)
BLT Chicken Sandwiches with Rosemary Mayo
Adapted from Bon AppetitPrintable Recipe
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
garlic salt and pepper
6 slices bacon, cooked crisp
1 roma tomato, thinly sliced (I actually used cherry tomatoes because I had them on hand and they worked just fine)
melty cheese - I used a jalapeno pub cheese - or you can skip the cheese all together
2 hoagie buns or sandwiches rolls of your choice
For the mayo:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1-2 teaspoons freshly minced rosemary leaves
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
Mix all the ingredients together for the mayo, until well combined. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
Preheat grill to 375 degrees F. Rub olive oil on both sides of each piece of chicken. Season with garlic salt and pepper (or whatever spice mixture you prefer). Place directly over the fire and grill about 8-10 minutes per side or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove from grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
Build your sandwich however you like, but I slathered mayo on the top and bottom bun - placed the chicken first, added the cheese, topped with bacon, tomato and lettuce - dinner is served! Enjoy!
