Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
8 slices hearty Italian bread, cut into 1/2-inch slices (bread slices are approximately 3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches)
2 left-over boneless grilled chicken breasts or 8 ounces ready-prepared grilled chicken, sliced
1/2 medium red onion, sliced
6 ounces grated sharp or extra-sharp white cheddar cheese
4 cooked bacon slices
6 tablespoons honey-based barbecue sauce
1/4 cup sun-dried tomato-flavored or plain mayonnaise

Cooking Directions:

  1. Combine mayonnaise and grated Parmesan in small bowl.
  2. Arrange bread slices on cutting board and spread approximately one tablespoon of Parmesan-mayo mixture on four of the bread slices. Top each with several slices of chicken, onion, 1/2 cheddar cheese and one bacon slice. Spread remaining slices of bread with 1 1/2 tablespoons of barbecue sauce. Assemble sandwiches.
  3. Cook sandwiches in a preheated greased skillet, about three minutes on each side, until bread is golden and cheese is melted. Remove and cut into quarters.
  4. Serve with a side of additional barbecue sauce if desired.

Makes 16 snack size sandwiches.
