Whether you make this Bacon and Swiss Grilled Chicken Sandwich for lunch or dinner, you’ll enjoy big flavor in every bite.

Ingredients

  • Chicken Breast
  • Bacon
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Mustard
  • Mayonnaise
  • Lettuce (optional)
  • Tomato (optional)
  • Caramelized Onions (optional)

Whether you grill the chicken inside on a grill pan or outside on the grill, this is a sandwich that comes together quickly. I did these inside because the weather was not cooperating to grill them on our gas grill. 

When I made this sandwich for my family they said it was as good as a sandwich you’d get in a restaurant. It’s reminscient of a grilled chicken club sandwhich recipe.

That’s quite the compliment! Honestly, I think it was the mustard mayonnaise sauce that put these sandwiches over the top.

If you don’t like either mustard or mayo, just use what you like. A premade honey mustard dipping sauce would also be delicious.

This is a meal that is very budget friendly. Many grocery stores have sales on chicken as well as cheese and bacon. I will usually buy my sandwich rolls in the deli where I can purchase just what I need rather than wasting any leftover.

Tips and Tricks for Succesful Sandwiches

  • If you’re grillng the chicken inside, cook the bacon in a separate skillet at the same time. That way both sandwich elements are ready at the same time.
  • Don’t skip pounding the chicken. It will cook more quickly and evenly when it’s been flattened. Trust me on this!
  • If you’re concerned about the bacon slipping off the sandwich, put the cheese on top.
  • Build the sandwich in the skillet. Once the chicken is done, place the cooked bacon on top, then the Swiss cheese. Cover the skillet so the heat and steam will melt the cheese.
  • I use hoagie rolls because the chicken breast fits better.
  • Dress the sandwich how you like. I put the mayo mustard sauce on both sides of the hoagie roll. Lettuce and tomato are great additions, however caramelized onions would be delicious too.
  • If you do include the caramelized onions, start those before the bacon and chicken. They will take longer to cook.
  • If you’re not a fan of Swiss cheese, use another melty cheese like Provolone or Mozzarella. A Cheddar would also be yummy

I’ve made theses sandwiches for both lunch and dinner. When I serve them for dinner I like to serve a heartier side or two. For lunch I often just serve chips.
