This scrumptious Roast Chicken, Brie and Bacon Sandwich would be a gourmet addition to any lunch box! And the drizzle of Hellmann’s Mayonnaise brings back memories of my childhood lunches. This post was sponsored by Kitchen PLAY on behalf of Hellmann’s; see disclaimer below.
A Lunchbox Staple!
My mom’s tuna salad sandwiches were simple, yet comforting. For a typical Friday lunch, she mixed a can of tuna with a bit of diced celery, maybe some chopped pickles and a big dollop of Hellmann’s Real Mayonnaise. But even more memorable lunches were made with leftover chicken, bacon and mayo. It was always Hellmann’s as it is today in my kitchen. A large jar is nestled in my refrigerator door, but I recently spotted the ALL NEW Hellmann’s Squeeze at the market. With a sleek profile and precision tip, it even allows your children to get the mayo on their sandwiches with accuracy (less mess is always a perk!). Plus the Clean Lock Top prevents those unwanted leaks. And what parent wouldn’t be tempted to write a sweet note on the top slice of bread before packing up the lunchbox?
Since my youngest is off to college, I made a more gourmet version of my favorite childhood lunch to send with my hubby to work. I popped a chicken breast, with a drizzle of olive oil and sprinkling of salt and pepper, into the oven to roast. Deli or rotisserie chicken is a terrific option if you’re short on time. While the chicken cooked, I microwaved some strips of bacon, sliced the perfectly ripe Brie and pulled a jar of roasted red bell peppers out of the pantry. If your kids don’t have adventuresome palates, skip the peppers and Brie, but my husband, who has rather grade-school tastes when it comes to food, raved about this combination!
Add a Note to Show Your Love
I hope you’ll nab a bottle of Hellmann’s Squeeze and begin the tradition of writing a sweet note in those sandwiches before they go out the door. Or get your children started with making their own lunches–they’ll love trying to make squiggles across the bread or even creating messages of their own. This new design also helps to get every last drop of mayonnaise out of the bottle, so there’s less waste. Plus it’s just the best mayonnaise around! I know you’ll want to stock up ASAP. Especially so you can make this marvelous Chicken, Brie and Bacon Sandwich!
