I was at work trying to decide what to make for supper. Alice Springs Chicken from Outback Steakhouse came to mind. Josh had a softball game at 7:00- so I decided to create a sandwich out of my idea.
The cast of characters.
The characters stacked together to create bountiful flavors.
Chicken & Bacon Sandwich
a nice bread of your choice, toasted
Tomatoes, lettuce and onion
Honey mustard sauce
Honey Mustard Sauce
3 Tbsp. mayo
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tsp. regular mustard
2 Tbsp. honey
1 shake of red pepper
a pinch of salt
Drizzle your chicken breast with lemon juice and sprinkle with seasoned
salt and pepper. Heat up a skillet with a couple tablespoons of butter.
Place chicken in skillet and keep a low/medium heat so it can cook through
without drying out. Don't flip until the meat is 2/3 done. You can see it turn from pink to white as it gets done. I have learned how to pan fry
chicken breast without them being bone dry.
If you do it right it can be quite juicy!
When your chicken is done top with a slice of cheese so it can melt.
Cook your bacon as you wish, I usually broil mine in the oven. Less mess!
Mix together honey mustard sauce and set aside.
When things are getting close to done- butter your bread and lightly toast it.
Mine wasn't so lightly toasted.
Assemble your cast of characters and secure with a toothpick.
I used the honey mustard as mayo.
