Chicken Club Sandwich
I've been on a major cleaning frenzy...I made my two page list and have been working hard to cross things off! I worked up quite an appetite, so I headed down to the kitchen to see what I could grab for a quick bite to eat. I didn't want to waste much time, so as I was looking through the refrigerator, I realized I had all of the ingredients to make BLT's. Then, it dawned on me that my husband had grilled some delicious chicken breasts the other night, so I thought I'd throw together a "chicken club". My recipe isn't anything extravagant, by any stretch of the imagination, but I will say...the way the chicken breasts were seasoned made a HUGE difference, which is why I thought I'd share this "recipe"...if you even want to call it that :) The proportions I'm giving are just for one sandwich, but obviously you can easily adjust if you want to make it for additional people!
Chicken Club Sandwich
1 boneless skinless chicken breast
Durkee Grill Creations St. Louis Style Chicken & Rib Rub (the *secret* ingredient!)
3-4 slices of bacon (the more the merrier!)
Roma tomato, sliced
2 slices of bread (anything will work...I actually just used plain white bread!)
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Rub chicken breast generously with the Chicken & Rib Rub (on BOTH sides) and grill for 8-10 minutes (turning halfway through) or until no longer pink. While chicken is grilling, place bacon in oven and cook until desired crispness is achieved--generally about 15 minutes. When chicken and bacon are both thoroughly cooked, toast two slices of bread. Generously spread Miracle Whip on both slices of bread. Place chicken breast on one slice of bread and top with bacon, tomato and lettuce. Place other slice of bread on top and enjoy ;)
NOTE: The chicken breasts could easily be made ahead of time and reheated, as I did...as long as you don't overcook them the first time around and just pop them in the microwave for a minute or so, they will remain extremely moist!
***I'm not sure if the seasoning mix is available everywhere, but we got a big container of it at Sam's Club.***
