Bacon & Cheddar Chicken Sandwiches

Every now and then I just have to shout from the rooftops about an awesome Taste of Home Recipe!  I am so excited to share this one, because it was definitely one of the biggest surprises in awhile. 

Have you ever read a recipe and thought, hmmmm...this sounds too simple....how is this really even a recipe?   I recently came across one where this was my thought process.  I read the ingredients.  Some chicken, a bit of spice, mayo, mustard, cheese....So what?  It's just a sandwich.   But, I had all the ingredients, so why not give it a shot?

Oh.  My.  Goodness.  This sandwich is not just a sandwich.  It's HEAVEN ON A BUN!  I'm going to be grilling these up all summer!

The original recipe is called Bacon & Swiss Chicken Sandwiches, but swiss cheese certainly isn't my fave, so I switched it up to cheddar.  I've copied and pasted the original recipe below, and noted my changes in blue italics.

Taste of Home's Bacon & Swiss Sandwiches
1/4 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise 
1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
1 Tbsp. honey
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 oz each)
1/2 tsp. Montreal steak seasoning
4 slices Swiss cheese (I used cheddar)
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled (live a little, people.  I used 4.  One per sandwich)
Lettuce leaves and tomato slices, optional

-In a small bowl, mix mayonnaise, mustard and honey. Pound chicken with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. Sprinkle chicken with steak seasoning. Grill chicken, covered, over medium heat or broil (I grilled) 4 in. from heat 4-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 165°. Top with cheese during the last 1 minute of cooking.

2. Grill buns over medium heat, cut side down, for 30-60 seconds or until toasted. Serve chicken on buns with bacon, mayonnaise mixture and, if desired, lettuce and tomato. Yield: 4 servings.

See?  So easy sounding.  These are nothing short of amazing, yet the ingredients are so simple!  Enjoy, and check out some of the other recipes shared, below!
