Chicken Bacon Cheddar Sandwiches

It is just as good as it sounds.  It has bacon... how could it not be good?

This sandwich is just simple pan-fried chicken breasts topped with bacon and cheese of your choice.  I just happened to prefer cheddar.  You can pick your own cheese if you want.

Oh, Ree's recipe also included lemon pepper seasoning, and I completely forgot to use it.  I included it in my recipe anyway and will try it next time.

As you can see below, I cut ours in half and we both had 2 little sandwiches.  Don't do it.  Just have one giant yummy chicken bacon cheddar sandwich so the bread doesn't dominate.

Forgot to take a picture once they were on buns.  Oops.  They were pretty buns, too.

Chicken Bacon Cheddar Sandwiches 
(2 sandwiches)
• 2 chicken breasts
• 4 pieces of bacon
• Cheddar cheese (or your cheese of choice)
• Lemon pepper seasoning
• Buns

Use kitchen shears to cut the bacon in half.  Cook bacon on med-low.
While the bacon is cooking, use the smooth side of a meat tenderizer to even out the thickness of the chicken.  Sprinkle both sides of chicken with lemon pepper seasoning.
When the bacon is done move it to a paper towel lined plate.  Dump out most of the grease, leaving about a tablespoon.  Add the chicken.  Cook until the outer edges of the top become opaque.  Flip and begin arranging the bacon on top of the chicken.  Then add your cheese.  Cover for a few minutes to let cheese melt and chicken finish cooking.
Make into sandwiches and enjoy!
