Smokey Mountain Chicken sandwiches recipe

I whipped up some delicious Smokey Mountain Chicken sandwiches for lunch today, perfect for Hubs and our hardworking ranch hands. It was a total success and I definitely need to do this more often because it was a breeze. If you haven’t tried making these, I hope you’ll have a blast watching me whip them up.

step 1

Preheat oven to 400. Using a meat mallet, pound out 5-6 small chicken breast cutlets on a cutting board, add a little salt and pepper. Heat 4T oil in a large skillet over medium high heat as you’re pounding the meat then , brown cutlets on each side until done. While chicken is cooking, line a baking sheet w foil. Lay 8 strips of bacon cut in half on the foil. Bake bacon about 10 minutes or until done then pull bacon pan from oven and set aside, grease and all.

step 2

Line another baking sheet halfway with foil creating edges to hold the chicken juices. Transfer cutlets to the foil lined portion of the pan, brushing Aldi bbq sauce on both sides. I was a loyal Baby Rays fan until I tried Aldis. It’s better and exactly 1/3 of the cost. My family would eat bbq sauce on everything if possible so I keep several on hand.

Viola! Lunch is served cowboys! They absolutely loved this w a big pitcher of sweet iced tea to wash it all down. There was fruit salad on the side for those who chose to do so. Slaw would be good too. Hope you try these. You can grill your cutlets if you have time.
