8 to 10 oz. meat from 1 whole rotisserie chicken, sliced
8 jarred roasted red peppers
1/2 avocado, cut into 12 thin slices
How to Make It
In a medium frying pan over medium-low heat, cook bacon, turning often, until just crisp, 12 to 15 minutes. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together mayonnaise, Worcestershire, mustard, and garlic. Spread this mixture on 4 toast pieces. On each of the remaining 4 toasts, spread about 1 tbsp. blue cheese.
Layer each blue cheese–topped toast with a piece of lettuce, 1/4 of the chicken slices, 2 red peppers, 3 slices avocado, and a slice of bacon. Top each with a mayonnaise-spread toast. Cut sandwiches in half and skewer each half with a toothpick to help hold it together.
I wanted to make something without going to the store and this was it. It tasted GREAT! Since I don't really care for blue cheese (I had some left over from a different recipe) I only used 1 tsp. per slice instead of 1 tbsp. Also, I took the advice from the recipe and used tomatoes instead of jarred red peppers. I didn't have any thick cut bacon so I used 2 regular slices for each sandwich of Canadian bacon. I also had some boneless chicken thighs so I cooked those instead of rotisserie chicken. I sliced the lettuce instead of using whole leaves and used up the whole avocado. I am making these again and again! They tasted fantastic! Great combo!
I made slight changes to the recipe and loved it. I ommitted the roasted red peppers and replced them with a couple of leaves of basil per sandwich. I also took a tablespoon or two of the required mayonaise and mixed it with the blue cheese. That way the blue cheese was easy to spread and didn't fall out of the sandwich.
This sandwich is superb!! It's definitely going in the rotation. The garlic mayo and the blue cheese are the stars. We Left out the avocado as the flavor would have been lost up against the strong flavors of garlic & blue cheese - but the calories would still be there! Excellent recipe!
