Is there a such a thing as a bacon support group? I could eat bacon every day. Granted, I know it wouldn’t be too good for me, but I still can’t resist. Especially when I’m having a challenging day. Between work and the tiny humans, let’s face it…sometimes a girl just needs her bacon. I normally eat bacon for breakfast. But sometimes I branch out to lunch. There’s honestly nothing better than a BLT. Bacon, lettuce, tomato…yummo! The other day I happened to have some rotisserie chicken that needed using. Sometimes I buy a rotisserie chicken for the convenience – I can use it in salads, casseroles, or just eat it plain. But when I have a small amount leftover, I usually make it into a chicken salad for lunch. Now, I like chicken salad as much as the next person, but sometimes I like to get a little creative and the other day, I decided to mix it up a little. And I made a BLT chicken salad sandwich. It really hit the spot! And because there was bacon involved, of course, I loved it even more.
Start by crisping your bacon in a medium skillet over medium heat. When crispy, drain grease and set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix your ingredients. Shredded rotisserie chicken breasts, bacon, green onions, tomato, mayonnaise, and a tiny bit of dijon mustard (can be omitted). Don’t go crazy on the dijon or it will over-power the sandwich.
Take two slices of wheat bread and spread with mayonnaise. Add lettuce, chicken salad and serve. Enjoy!
