Description

Little bites of grilled chicken deliciousness. Change it up by adding different sauces, cheeses, toppings. Perfect for the Super Bowl!

Ingredients

  • 4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts (breast Halves, Not The Whole Breast)
  • 16 slices Thin Bacon
  • Cajun Spice
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste
  • 16 whole Small Dinner Rolls
  • 16 slices Cheese Of Your Choice (cheddar, Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack, American, Swiss)
  • Bottled Sauces Of Your Choice: BBQ, Louisiana Hot Sauce, Teriyaki, Etc.
  • Toppings Of Your Choice: Tomato Slices, Grilled Onions, Lettuce, Celery Leaves, Etc.
  • Spread Of Your Choice: Mayo, Mustards, Mayo Mixed With Chipotle Pepper, Etc.

Preparation

Slice bacon pieces in half and fry over medium-low heat until

Place the palm of your hand flat on the top of each chicken breast. Apply light pressure as you slice it horizontally in half (be careful!) When you’re finished, you’ll have eight thinner chicken breast pieces. Slice each of these in half so you’ll wind up with sixteen small chicken “patties.” Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the thicker pieces and pound gently with a rolling pin to flatten slightly.

Brush both sides of the chicken pieces with a little bit of the bacon fat, then season with Cajun spice and salt and pepper to taste.

Heat a grill pan if you have one, or a heavy skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Cook chicken pieces on the first side for a couple of minutes, then flip them over to the other side. Lay slices of cheese (whatever kind you’d like) on top of each piece, then top with a couple of bacon slices. Cook until chicken is done, then remove from the pan.

Spread both sides of dinner rolls with the spread of your choice (mayo, mustard, etc.) and the toppings of your choice (tomato, lettuce, etc.) Place chicken pieces in between halved dinner rolls. Serve immediately!

Variations:

* Brush a little BBQ sauce on the chicken before laying on the slice of cheese and the bacon.

* Brush a little Louisiana hot sauce on the chicken. Add bacon, then top with a bunch of celery leaves before putting inside the buns.

* Change up the cheese, toppings, however you’d like!

These were really delicious! I made them with pepper jack cheese and barbecue sauce and they were a hit! I found that grilling the chicken in a little barbecue sauce as well really helps add flavor to the chicken. I also really like using free range organic chicken because it is healthier for the body and is more responsible on the environment and for the chickens. Anyway, I loved these!
