Today's lunch: a chicken-bacon club sandwich on toasted whole-wheat bread, with seasoned fries, ketchup, and dill pickle slices on the side.

A few days ago, I seasoned up a BSCB, roasted it in the oven @ 350 for an hour, chilled it overnight in the fridge, and then sliced it nearly paper-thin for sammiches. Been using this approach for a few months now to make sammich meat, and it works great.

Also had some leftover bacon from breakfast-for-dinner from a couple of night back, so it got recycled into lunch.

Toppings included chopped romaine, thin-sliced tomato, and a generous smear of mayo on all interior bread surfaces.

Verdict: unbelievably good. Satisfying. Proportions of chicken to bacon to veg were all spot-on. Toast level on the bread was dead-on, and really enhanced the other flavors.

Will make again.

Thanks, all, for the kind words. :-D

If I went to a restaurant, ordered a club sammich, and was served what I posted in the OP, I'd pay cash money and be glad for it.

Which direction did you slice the BSCB?

That is truly one of the finest club sammiches I've ever seen! Love the thinly sliced chicken breast, too.

I sliced across the grain, just like you would with a beef roast, with a carving knife I got from Amazon for ~$25:

Takes a few minutes to get a whole BSCB sliced properly (still working on my carving speed), but really helps get a nice, super-thin slice on whatever meat (chicken or beef) that I'm carving up for a sandwich.

On a side note, I don't buy pre-sliced lunch meat at the grocery anymore since I got the above carving knife. I can prep my own BSCB or beef roasts to my taste, carved how I want, without unnecessary chemicals or preservatives.

Thanks, much appreciated. :icon_blush: :-D

In truth, the idea came to me as I was scanning the fridge, seeing what leftovers were available and trying to come up with a lunchtime gameplan.

I almost didn't take a pic of the finished product, but I'm glad I did, so next time the same leftovers show up, I can try to replicate what I did in the OP.
