Bakin’ With Bacon and The King

Happy Saturday from the Castle Baconia – I am your KING!

I always enjoy taking over the kitchen here on Saturdays from our usual royal Chef.   He gets a day off and I get to share a bacon recipe with all of you…………’s is a yummy one too I’m sure you will agree.

Bacon and Chicken Pan-Fried Sandwiches

INGREDIENTS  (for four sandwiches)

  • 8 slices bacon
  • 12 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 2  tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chives (chopped) – and this is optional too
  • 1 cup chicken (cooked and shredded)
  • butter (for spreading)
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 8 slices smoked cheddar cheese


  • Cook bacon until crispy
  • Place the mayonnaise, garlic, lemon juice, chives and chicken in a bowl and mix well to combine.
  • Spread both sides of the bread with butter (you will fry sandwiches butter side down of course!!)
  • Put cheese slice on bread, add cheese and chicken mixture, top with another slice of cheese and bread.    You have enough mixture for FOUR of these sandwiches!
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over low heat and cook the sandwiches in batches if necessary for 3-4 minutes each side or until golden and the cheese is melted.

Oh do I have to tell you how divine this is?    We love chicken around here and bacon too so how can you miss with this combo.   Also, I know this is NOT a “diet option” but when my Mom made this she fried boneless chicken breasts for the chicken – of course we had more than the cup we needed for this recipe but she and my Dad love fried chicken sandwiches.    Anyway I’m mentioning this because the crunch from the fried chicken and the crunchy bacon were a GREAT combination for those who love that CRUNCH!   Mom didn’t shred the chicken TOO much either – left it kind of chunky.  Make these sandwiches however YOU want to – just use the ingredients we gave you and you can’t go wrong!!

So are you interested in making this one?    I hope so……….it really is easy as you can see and maybe a combination of things you wouldn’t have thought of……….but DEFINITELY delicious!

See?  Even doctors recommend bacon!  


Have a Royal and Bacon-filled Weekend!!!!

    Yum!!! I’m now trying to decide if I want to bake a loaf of sourdough or try this with the Black Russian (my favorite bread) that I made, yesterday.
    Hope you have a fantastic weekend.
