Loaded Grilled Chicken Sandwich

I threw these ingredients together on a whim and the sandwich turned out so well, I surprised myself! If you're in a rush, microwave the bacon. Just cover it with paper towel to keep it from splattering too much. —Dana York, Kennewick, Washington

    Decent grilled chicken sandwich. My local grocery was out of ciabatta rolls so I settled for Kaiser rolls. I am not a fan of our local deli slaws but it turned out ok on the sandwich.

    I thought it was tasty but, as written, I feel it would be too much. I chose to serve the slaw on the side.The best part of this dish, in my opinion, was the *sauce.* I doubled the amount of mayo & mustard and added about a teaspoon of crushed rosemary. Mmmm... My mind immediately began thinking of all the possibilities this sauce could be used for.Thanks Dana! :)
