Cobb-Style Chicken Sandwich

Ingredients
4
slices bacon
2
large boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (8 ounces total)
1
tablespoon honey
2
slices Swiss, cheddar, or Monterey Jack cheese
2
Kaiser or individual French-style rolls, or whole wheat buns, split and toasted
1
tablespoon Dijon-style or coarse-grain mustard
1
small tomato, thinly sliced (optional)
1/2
of a small ripe avocado, sliced (optional)
 
Leaf lettuce (optional)
 
Chive flowers (optional)

Directions

  1. In a large skillet cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Drain bacon on paper towels; set aside. Reserve 2 tablespoons of the drippings in the skillet; discard the remaining drippings.
  2. Place each chicken breast half between 2 pieces of plastic wrap. Working from the center to the edges, pound the chicken lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness.
  3. Cook chicken in reserved bacon drippings over medium heat for 4 to 6 minutes or until chicken is tender and no pink remains, turning once. Brush chicken with honey; top with cheese.
  4. To serve, spread roll or bun halves with the mustard. Add the chicken with cheese, bacon, and, if desired, tomato, avocado, and lettuce leaves. Top with roll or bun tops. If desired, garnish with chive flowers. Makes 2 servings.
