"BBQ sauce and bacon are the secrets to the wonderful flavor of the chicken in this sandwich. Add avocado and cheese, and how can you go wrong? Makes a hearty lunch by itself or serve with salad or french fries for a delicious dinner."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Coat a baking dish with cooking spray. Brush both sides of each chicken breast with barbeque sauce and place in the baking dish. Top each breast with 2 slices bacon.
  2. Bake chicken 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until juices run clear. Drain bacon strips on paper towels, and slice breasts in half lengthwise.
  3. Heat the oven broiler. Spread both halves of each hoagie roll with Ranch dressing. Place 2 breast halves on one half of each roll. Place 2 strips of bacon on each remaining roll half. Top each half with 1 slice Swiss cheese.
  4. Arrange sandwich halves on the baking sheet, and broil 2 to 5 minutes, until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Layer chicken halves of sandwiches with avocado slices, and top with bacon halves to serve.

I was not sure about the BBQ sauce/ranch dressing combo, but it works! I also mashed the avocado because I can then spread it on the bread for avocado in every bite, but that is not really a pr...

Delicious - I can see why this is "Dan's Favorite Sandwich"! My husband loves anything with bacon so this was a winning combination for us! I chose to grill the chicken instead of baking and bas...

I found this dish to be easy and fabulous.

Yum yum yum! I cut recipe to make one sandwich. I made this as a melt on dark rye bread. I used my George Foreman grill to cook the chicken and cleaned it off to grill the sandwich. Was rea...

Made this tonight for myself, it was fantastic. Made a few variations for personal preference; I used potato bread instead of hoagie rolls, I just like the way it toasts up and absorbs all the ...

My hubby loved this. I liked it, we'll make it again. I think when I do it again, I'll slice the chicken breasts and layer the slices on the bread - it will make it easier to eat. Thanks for t...
