This was a terrific sandwich. The soft sourdough bread with crispy bacon, tender chicken breast, balsamic marinated heirloom tomatoes complimented with tangy and herbaceous goat cheese. Very simple but one of those meals where you think “wow why don’t I have this once a week”. You could serve it hot, room temperature or even cold.

Ingredients
Fresh Sourdough Bread
3 strips of bacon
2 chicken breasts (pounded to even thickness)
1-2 heirloom tomatoes
3 tbs of goat cheese
Fresh thyme
Fresh Basil
Dukes Mayo
Kosher Salt

Directions:
1. In a medium-low heated cast iron skillet add your bacon. The trick is to go low and slow to properly render out the fat and to crisp it perfectly. It shouldn’t curl up on you. If it does turn your heat down. When cooked remove and place it on paper towel.

2. Lightly salt and pepper your chicken after you pounded it so that it is a consistent thickness. This will ensure it cooks evenly and stays juicy. Place the chicken right into the pan you were using for cooking the bacon. When done let it rest and slice thinly against the grain. IMG_0394

3. While your chicken is cooking. Take some goat cheese and add chopped basil and thyme. I heat it in the microwave for 5 seconds to blend it easier. Let it come to room temp and you can skip that step. Also slice your tomatoes, salt them and place on a paper towel. The salt will draw out the moisture and aide the balsamic vinegar in soaking into the tomato. After about 5 minutes dab with paper towel and drizzle balsamic vinegar on your tomatoes. IMG_0393

4. Slice your bread. Put Dukes Mayo on one slice and goat cheese on the second slice. Add chicken, then bacon and top with your tomato. Enjoy. IMG_0397</aIMG_0400>
