Scott's Favorite Sandwich

When Scott was home for Spring Break, I asked him what he would like me to cook... something that he missed being away at school. He didn't have to think long. He wanted those 'chicken sandwiches' that I hade made before. I got the recipe from a blog that I frequent often... Pioneer Woman Cooks. She has a blog of her life on the ranch which has beautiful photography! It's called Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. Links to those are listed at the top of my blog. Marlboro Man is the name she has given to her husband who is quite a looker!

Marlboro Man’s Second Favorite Sandwich

The Cast of Characters: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts, Lemon & Pepper seasoning, peppered bacon, cheese (American, Colby, PepperJack, Swiss etc any kind that you like) and sandwich buns.

There's no real amounts of any of the ingredients, just use your imagination!

Cut bacon sliced in half and cook in pan until done. Drain on a paper towel. Pour off all of the grease except for one or two tablespoons.
Sprinkle the lemon pepper seasoning liberally on both sides of the chicken pieces.
Make sure the pan is nice and hot again and put chicken pieces in. Cook the chicken breasts on one side for about four minutes, or until the edges are no longer pink. Then flip ‘em over.
After you flip the chicken breasts, begin arranging the cooked bacon slices on the cooked side of the breasts.
How much bacon you place on each chicken breast depends on a) how much bacon you want to put on each chicken breast OR, in my case, b) how much bacon you have left after your family has walked through the kitchen and popped slices into their mouths.
Now lay slices of cheese on top of the bacon.
Cover for a few minutes to let the chicken finish cooking and to allow the cheese to melt.
Done! Without fail, in the time it takes for the cheese to melt thoroughly, the chicken finishes cooking. Just don’t overdo it or everything (even the cheese) will start to dry out.
Put the chicken on a plain ol’ hamburger bun. Enjoy!
