Pioneer Woman's Chicken and Bacon Sandwich
Makes 4 sandwiches
4 chicken breasts, pounded thin
1/2 package pepper bacon (cut package in half with scissors)(I used hickory bacon and added freshly cracked pepper)
4 rolls of your choice (I used onion rolls)
4 slices of the cheese of your choice
Lemon & Pepper seasoning salt
Dijon mustard & mayo, optional
1. Cook bacon in a saute pan to your desired crispness. I like mine chewy, so I went with that. Drain on paper towels and set aside. Drain bacon grease off of pan, reserving one spoonful for cooking the chicken in.
2. Season the pounded chicken breasts with the lemon & pepper seasoning. Don't be afraid to really pour on the seasoning, it is good stuff. Heat the saute pan to med-high and add back the bacon grease.
3. When pan is heated, add the chicken breasts. Allow to cook for 4 minutes on the first side, then flip over. Add the bacon strips to the cooked side of the chicken breast, then top with cheese.
4. Cover your pan with a lid (or tin foil, as I use) and allow to cook for 4 minutes. Once cheese is thoroughly melted, remove from pan and add to your buns of choice. Add condiments and serve!
