Honey Roasted Chicken Clubhouse Sandwich

honey roasted chicken club sandwich

I have been craving a simple toasted chicken clubhouse sandwich for months now.  Any restaurant that had a chicken clubhouse listed on their menu had their own version which just wasn’t what I wanted.  I didn’t want a baked chicken breast with prosciutto, lettuce and roasted tomato on an rustic Italian roll with garlic and herb Aioli.

I just wanted the sandwich of my childhood—three pieces of white bread toasted and slathered with mayonnaise, thick slices of juicy tomato, thick slices of honey chicken breast carved from the roasted chicken topped with 4 slices of thick cut bacon and surrounded by crisp lettuce. I wanted the sandwich cut in 4 triangles and held together by extra long tooth picks. I made it myself.

Sometimes it’s the simple things in life that give the greatest pleasure!

I remember this restaurant across the street from our high school where my friends and I used to occasionally go for lunch.  The name escapes me and yes it was that long ago. They made this chicken clubhouse sandwich with a side order of coleslaw and the best fries and gravy. The restaurant was just a mom and pop greasy spoon but their food was delicious!

Honey Roasted Chicken Clubhouse Sandwich

Ingredients

  • 3 slices of White Bread Toasted
  • 2 tablespoons of Mayonnaise
  • 4 slices of Tomato
  • 1 large leaf of lettuce
  • 3 slices of honey roasted chicken breast
  • 4 slices of thick cut bacon

Instructions

  • I used a honey roasted chicken and sliced off 3 pieces from the breast but you can use a rotisserie chicken if you don't have the time
  • Toast your white bread and then slather mayonnaise on each piece. On the first piece of toast, with mayonnaise side up, add your lettuce then and add your slice of chicken and top with 2nd piece of toast mayonnaise side up.
  • Place your lettuce then your slices of tomato. Add salt and pepper to taste and top with last piece of toast mayonnaise side down.
  • Slice your sandwich diagonally right to left then slice again left to right. You now have four triangles. Stick a long toothpick in each triangle to hold it together and place on your plate.
  • Remember to take the toothpick out before eating and enjoy your diner chicken clubhouse sandwich

Grilled Cheese Sammie with Onion Bacon Jam

Bacon onion jam sandwiched between slices of American processed cheese on sourdough bread and grilled—we couldn’t shovel them into our mouths fast enough. The onion bacon jam just takes an ordinary grilled cheese into a totally different realm of yum! Can you tell we loved them?

Grilled cheese sandwiches always remind my hubby of his childhood.  They were his favorite lunch. And somethings haven’t changed much.

These sandwiches are pretty filling by themselves but if you’re still hungry they go deliciously with roasted tomato soup.  Mmm Mmm Mmm

Grilled Cheese Sammie with Onion Bacon Jam

Ingredients

  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 6 slices of American Processed Cheese
  • Onion Bacon Jam (to taste, I covered the entire slice thickly with it)
  • 4 pats of Butter

Instructions

  • Butter the one side only of each slice of bread
  • Add 3 slices of cheese on the un-buttered side
  • Cover with Onion Bacon Jam to taste. I love it so I used a thick layer of it over the entire sandwich.
  • Add the last 3 pieces of American Processed Cheese over top of the Onion Bacon Jam
  • Top with second slice of buttered bread--buttered side up
  • Place the sandwich buttered side down, in a non-stick or cast iron fry pan over medium-high heat. Cover with a lid and let cook for 3-4 minutes or until golden.
  • Reduce heat to medium and gently flip sandwich to the other side and cook for 2-3 minutes or until bread is toasty, golden brown and the cheese has melted. The second side will cook faster than the first so be careful.
  • If you want to make more grilled cheese sandwiches just increase the the ingredients accordingly and repeat the process. Serve while they're hot.

Notes

The sourdough loaf I used was quite wide so you might want to adjust the amount of cheese slices depending on the size of sourdough slice you use.

You can get creative and change around the fillings.  Try thinly sliced turkey with cranberry jelly blended into the cream cheese. These are also great for parties. Just slice them thinner and put a bit more cream cheese around the closing edge to make sure it stays put when you cut them thinner.
