Mini Chicken Salad Club Sandwiches

I had a chicken club pizza the other night (purchased from the store). It had honey mustard sauce instead of pizza sauce, chicken, tomatoes and chopped bacon. It was ok but I realized how much better it would be made from scratch. And in thinking about that I decided to try making a sandwich out of similar ingredients. This is what I came up with.

Makes 4 mini sandwiches.

4 slices center-cut bacon, cut in half
4 whole wheat dinner rolls, split in half (the ones I used were 45 calories/roll)
1 slice reduced fat provolone cheese, cut into four pieces
Honey mustard chicken salad (recipe below)
1 small tomato (diameter to fit rolls), sliced

Honey Mustard Chicken Salad:
2 cooked and seasoned boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small pieces
1/4 c. sliced water chestnuts, chopped roughly
1/4 c. light mayo
1/4 c. honey mustard
1 tsp. lemon juice
1 clove garlic, minced
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper

Fry bacon and then drain on paper towels, leaving a small amount of bacon grease in the pan. Toast all of the rolls on their bottom sides in the bacon grease over med. low heat. When they are toasted flip over and lay a piece of cheese on each of the top halves. Continue to toast until the cheese is melted as much as you want it to be.

While the rolls are toasting make the honey mustard chicken salad, combining all ingredients.

Layer 1/4 of the chicken salad on the bottom rolls of each sandwich and then top each with 1 slice of tomato and 2 half slices of bacon. Then top with the remaining rolls.

Calories per sandwich: about 200
