Every day, we bring a lunch to work. Every day, we end up getting something from the food truck for lunch and our “lunch” becomes dinner as the hours spend at work since July have been unbelievably long – averaging about fifteen hours a day.
Recently, Kiddo and I got Chicken Club Sandwiches from Steve’s Truck. Steve’s isn’t a gourmet food truck – everything he serves is either cooked on the griddle or deep-fried. His Chicken Club Sandwich was no exception. Yet, we had to admit, they were tasty. Maybe not healthy, but tasty none the less. And so simple to make.
This week, we managed to get home at a decent hour, and Steve’s Chicken Club Sandwiches made at home were the perfect “fast” dinner for my tattered, tired gang. Kiddo put Swiss Cheese on his sandwich, I went for the Sharp Cheddar. These would also be great with smoked Gouda or even Pepper Jack for a little added heat.
Super Easy Chicken Club Sandwiches
6 Tyson Chicken Patties
6 Slices Bacon, crisp
6 Slices Sharp Cheddar Cheese (or favorite sliced cheese)
6 Hamburger Buns, lightly grilled
3 Tablespoons Mayonnaise
1 Large Tomato, sliced
6 Lettuce Leaves
Cook chicken patties in the oven as directed. While the chicken is baking, fry bacon crisp and let drain on paper towels.
Wipe down griddle, butter buns and toast lightly.
Place sliced cheese on chicken patties, return to oven long enough for cheese to melt.
Spread mayonnaise on toasted buns. Place lettuce and tomato on bottom bun. Top with chicken patty. Top patty with bacon and top bun. Serve.
Note: These sandwiches would be great with Basil Mayonnaise. See California Avocado BLT Sandwich with Basil Mayonnaise for the recipe.
