Note to self! Master Bread Outlet has Onion Rolls! Everywhere else in town has, apparently, lost their mind and quit carrying them!
BBQ Chicken & Cheddar Sandwiches
4 strips of bacon, halved crosswise
3 chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 lbs.), cut into bite-sized pieces
salt & pepper
1 c. of your favorite BBQ sauce
1/2 chipotle pepper, optional ( I did not use because I didn't want to buy a can to use 1/2 of 1 pepper and they were fantastic without)
1/4 c. water
4 large onion rolls, split
1 1/2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Fry bacon in a large non-stick skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel lined plate and pour off all but 1 Tbsp. of fat. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in bacon fat until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Flip chicken and add BBQ sauce, chipotle pepper (if desired), and water.
Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly thickened, about 8 minutes.
Place onion rolls on a baking sheet. Divide chicken mixture amongst the onion rolls, placing the chicken on the bottom portion of the rolls, cut side up. Top with sauce, cheese, and bacon.
Bake open-faced sandwiches in the oven until cheese melts and the rolls are golden-brown, about 4 minutes. Top each sandwich with a toasted roll top.
