Dijon Chicken Club Sandwiches



I am becoming more and more addicted to Pinterest every day. I've been finding great recipe ideas and tonight's dinner was one of them. The original recipe calls for the sandwich to be cooked in a skillet but I decided to use my panini press and I used Cibatta bread instead of wheat and it turned out great! However you choose to make this sandwich I am sure you won't be disappointed! It was delicious!

Dijon Chicken Club Sandwiches
Adapted from Homemade by Holman

4 slices whole wheat bread ( I used Cibatta)
2 slices smoked mozzarella cheese
4 slices bacon
2 pieces of Dijon chicken (Recipe below)
2 tsp Dijon mustard

Preheat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until crispy. Drain on a paper towel. Remove bacon grease and wipe out pan with a paper towel, return pan to stove and reduce heat to medium. Thinly slice chicken breasts against the grain. Lightly butter one side of bread slices, spread mustard on non-buttered side of one piece of bread. Add one slice of cheese, 2 slices of bacon, cut in half, and half the chicken to each. Top with remaining slice of bread and place buttered side down in the skillet. Cook 3-4 minutes until golden brown and flip. Cook about another 3 minutes until cheese is melted and sandwich is golden brown.
Note: If using a panini press cook sandwich for about 3 minutes total.

For the Chicken

Dijon Chicken Marinade
1/3 cup Dijon mustard
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 T honey
1T lemon juice
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Combine mustard, vinegar, and honey in a small bowl and whisk until smooth. Add spices and stir. Prepare chicken breasts and place in a large plastic storage bag. Pour marinade over the chicken, close bag and shake bag gently and squeeze to evenly coat chicken. Refrigerate one hour.

Preheat grill, oil lightly and add chicken over medium heat. Cook 5-6 minutes and turn (if chicken sticks, give it another minute or so), cook about 5 minutes more until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil for about 10 minutes to allow juices to redistribute.
