Grilled Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich

Friday, July 12, 2013

We are off to our friends lake house for the weekend and absolutely cannot wait!  I figured I would just stop by and give you a grilling idea for the weekend.  Grilled Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches are basically the easiest and tastiest way to kick of the weekend.  I hope it's a good one for you! 
Start by seasoning the heck out of the chicken.  We used this Grill Mates Fiery 5 Pepper (no, they didn't pay me to plug that, we just like the seasoning.)
Wrapped each of the chicken breasts in bacon...never a bad idea.
And onto the grill they went. 
The bacon got nice and crispy while the chicken cooked and helped keep in a lot of the moisture.  I would suggest sticking a few toothpicks in to hold the bacon as that got a little sketchy.
Once the chicken and bacon are cooked, top with cheese.  We used pepper jack cheese that was left over from a party...hence the small squares.  But it worked perfectly!
Remove from the grill...just look at that melty cheese...and toasted buns in the background. Mr. Schwartz is the King of the Grill.
Pop one of the breasts on a cutting board..
And cut it in half..unless you are super man hungry, then leave it alone.
Place half of the chicken breast on the bun and top with ranch dressing.  I used my Semi-Homemade Ranch Dressing that I absolutely adore.  We always have a mason jar full of it in our fridge during the summer.
That's it!  Top with the other side of the bun and dig on in.
The spicy seasoning with the pepper jack cheese, crispy bacon and cool ranch dressing.  It doesn't get much better than that my friends.

Grilled Chicken Bacon Ranch Sandwiches
(makes 4 sandwiches)

2 large chicken breasts
4 slices of bacon
Seasoning of your choice (we used McCormick's Fiery 5 Pepper seasoning)
2-3 slices pepper jack cheese
4 buns
1 cup of ranch dressing (we love my Semi-Home Made Ranch Dressing)

Preheat the grill to medium high heat.

Season each chicken breast very liberally with your seasoning of choice.  Wrap each chicken  breast with two slices of bacon.  Secure the bacon using toothpicks.

Place the chicken on the grill and cook on each side for about 3-4 minutes depending on the heat of your grill.  Be careful to watch it so the bacon doesn't burn.  Once the chicken is no longer pink in the middle, top each chicken breast with the pepper jack cheese and allow to melt.

Remove chicken from the grill and place on a cutting board.  Slice each chicken in half and place a half of a chicken breast on each bun.  Pour the ranch dressing over the top of each chicken breast and top with the other half of bun.
