  • 8 slices bacon
  • 8 slices good-quality white bread
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 12 ounces cooked chicken shredded and warm*
  • 1 avocado sliced, room temperature and sliced
  • 4 slices pepper jack cheese
  • 1 large tomato optional, sliced


  • On a griddle or in a large skillet*, cook bacon until done and set aside.
  • Spread mayonnaise over the bread and assemble sandwiches with bacon, chicken, avocado slices, optional tomato and pepperjack cheese.
  • If you are going to cook the sandwiches in the bacon drippings, scrape or pour off all but about a tablespoon of grease, heat over medium heat and place sandwiches into the pan.
  • If you don't want to use the bacon drippings, wipe out grease and spread a very light coating of mayonnaise on both sides of the sandwiches before placing into the hot pan.
  • Cook, flipping once, until both sides are browned and cheese is melted.
  • Serve and enjoy.


*I like to use the white meat of a rotisserie chicken for this, but you can use any type of cooked chicken you like. Sliced deli meat is also a good option!
*If using a skillet to make the sandwiches, you will probably have to cook them in two batches. Heat your oven to 150°F and place the first batch of cooked sandwiches inside to keep warm while you finish the second batch.
