Bacon Chicken Sandwich

Wednesday, August 31, 2011 Review by judywrites

I came across the recipe and thought it would be a great lunch or casual dinner. I like the unusual ingredients and the recipe got some good reviews.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (5 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 4 slices process Swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split and toasted
  • 1 cup fresh baby spinach
  • 8 slices ready-to-serve fully cooked bacon, warmed

Directions

  • Flatten chicken to 1/2-in. thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear. Top each chicken breast half with a tomato and cheese slice; cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • Combine chutney and mayonnaise; spread over roll bottoms. Layer with spinach, chicken and bacon; replace tops.


Yield: 4 servings.

    Thank you Taste of Home.

    International Bacon Day or Bacon Day is an unofficial observance, often celebrated on the Saturday before US Labor Day (the first Monday of September). Some cultures, however, celebrate on 19th of February, while others celebrate the day on the first Saturday in January after the new year.

    Bacon day celebrations typically include social gatherings during which participants create and consume dishes containing bacon, including bacon-themed breakfasts, lunches, dinners, desserts, and drinks. Bacon Day gatherings may also include the consumption of soy bacon or turkey bacon.

    Bacon Day was conceived in 2004 by a group of¬†CU Boulder¬†(Colorado) graduate students. Bacon Day in Manchester UK is celebrated by several students on the 14th January, prior to January examinations as a distraction from revision. Bucknell students are also known for their bacon day celebrations, calling themselves “Meatheads”, and gorging on as much bacon as possible.

    Bacon Butty

    Saw this on a Saveur post and just had to share… looks so good.

    Bacon Butty – Serves 1

    3 tbsp. unsalted butter, softened
    6 slices back bacon*
    1 crusty round roll, halved and lightly toasted
    2 tbsp. HP Sauce**
    • Heat 1 tbsp. butter in a 10″ skillet over medium heat.
    • Add bacon and cook, turning once, until browned and crispy, about 3 minutes.
    • Meanwhile, spread remaining butter on top and bottom of roll.
    • Place bacon on bottom half and top with HP Sauce.
    • Cover with roll top.

     

    * Back Bacon is bacon cured pork loin, so Canadian (Irish) Bacon is the perfect meat for this sandwich.

    ** HP Sauce is a UK product. You can use Heinz 57 Steak Sauce as a substitute or if you want to make your own HP sauce, check out this page.

     

    Enjoy.
