Chicken and Peppered Bacon Sandwich...

This is another recipe from the Pioneer Woman, its easy and yummy. Its not for those who are dieting but I thought of a few tricks for those who want to watch their calories. Here is the recipe.. again click on the Pioneer Woman link to see step by step pics!!

Hamburger buns
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Lemon & pepper seasoning
Peppered bacon
Sliced cheese

Pound chicken breasts to get an even thickness.

Season each side of breast with lemon and pepper seasoning. Set aside.

Cut bacon in half and cook as many pieces as you want until chewy. Remove bacon and set aside. Drain fat, leaving about 1 tablespoon in pan.

Return pan to heat. When hot, place chicken breasts in pan. Cook for 4 minutes on one side then flip over. As the other side is cooking, place as many pieces of bacon as you want on each piece. Then put a slice of cheese over the bacon. Cover pan and let cheese melt. By the time the cheese is completely melted the chicken should be fully cooked.

Remove chicken breast and place on hamburger bun.


**the sandwich has a lot of flavor and doesn't need much in the way of condiments.
I put honey mustard on it and Cameron put mayo.

***for a lighter meal, try using a whole grain bun, or no bun at all!! You may also try a light cheese or turkey bacon. Any way it has good flavor!
