Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Sandwich

I’m pretty boring when it comes to sandwiches. My kids eat PB&Js quite a bit, I eat turkey, cheese, and tomato on white bread every now and then, and sometimes I spice things up with a totally gourmet grilled cheese sandwich (white bread, two slices of American cheese…we are fancy).

Sandwiches don’t have to be boring though. In fact, this sandwich will make you cry tears of joy. It will make you wonder why the heck you don’t eat sandwiches every day of the week. It will make you groan with pleasure, and that my friends is an amazing thing to be said about a sandwich.

This is super simple, super quick, and super flavorful. I like to cook my chicken on the stove in a bit of olive oil, but you could just as easily use grilled chicken. Even better, this sandwich is best when cold, so leftover chicken is perfect for this. Avocados add some fun color and creaminess, the red onion adds a bit of bite, and the bacon…well, the bacon just makes it delicious. Bacon has a way of doing that.

This recipe is a part of Bacon Week, the best week there ever was. If you’d like to participate, please send me a link to a bacon recipe on your blog and I’ll feature it here at the end of the week. Email the link (and feel free to include a picture sized 625px wide or smaller) by 10pm on July 1st to karly[at][dot]com.

Chicken, Bacon, and Avocado Sandwiches
serves 4

  • 1 package (about 1 3/4 pounds) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • salt, pepper, and garlic salt
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 avocado
  • 8 slices bacon, fried crisp
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 1/4 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 4 kaiser rolls

Begin by pounding the chicken breasts to about 1/4 of an inch thick. Season on both sides with salt, pepper, and garlic salt.  Heat oil in a large skillet and add chicken breasts. Flip chicken breasts after about 5 minutes and continue cooking for 5 minutes more or until chicken is cooked through. Transfer to a plate, slice chicken into small pieces and place in the fridge to chill.

When the chicken is cold, slice the avocado and red onion into thin slices. Mix together the mayo and mustard and spread on one side of the kasier roll. Layer the chicken, bacon, avocado, and onion on the roll. Enjoy!

    Bacon with avocado is one of my most favorite combos! Sometimes I just eat it plain on toast. :)

    while the bacon is a delightful component, all it takes to make me cry tears of joy is the presence of avocado. :)

    I absolutely want this right now. And I totally love your honesty about what you guys normally eat. You make me feel better about our lack of excitement and repeats in this house. :) Glad to know I’m not alone!
