Ingredients

  • 4 slices thick cut bacon
  • 2 large boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 4 tblsp. mayonnaise
  • 3 tblsp. Dijon mustard
  • 4 whole grain buns
  • Lettuce

Instructions

  • Cut the bacon in half crosswise into eight pieces. Cook in a large skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Remove and set aside. Drain all but one tablespoon of the bacon fat from the pan and return it to the heat.
  • While the bacon is cooking, prep the chicken. Cut each breast in half crosswise. Using a meat mallet, a rolling pin, or other heavy object, pound each breast to a uniform thickness. Season with ground black pepper.
  • Cook the chicken breasts in the bacon fat until golden brown and done throughout. Add a touch of olive oil if needed during cooking.
  • While the chicken breasts are cooking, wrap the buns in aluminum foil and warm in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes. Remove and keep warm until needed.
  • When the breasts are done, top each with two pieces of cooked bacon and a slice of Swiss cheese. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan, and cook until the cheese has melted.
  • Combine the mayonnaise and mustard in a small bowl. Spread each cut side of a bun with the mayo-mustard mixture. Top each with lettuce and one cooked chicken breast.
