Why You Must Make

  • This chicken sandwich recipe is kicked up a few notches with bacon, Brie and roasted red peppers!
  • It can easily be made into a grilled cheese by coating the bread with butter or mayonnaise and cooking on a skillet until the cheese is melted and gooey!
  • Feel free to tweak the recipe by swapping out the cheese for cheddar or Gruyere, using sourdough or another favorite bread, or leaving out the peppers or bacon.

Since my youngest is off to college, I created a more gourmet version of my favorite childhood grilled cheese sandwich to send with my hubby to work. To make this simple chicken sandwich recipe, I popped a chicken breast, with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle 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!

Ingredient Notes

  • Kitchen Staples – Bread; I used multigrain, but use your favorite. Sourdough is nice, too.
  • Mayonnaise – Hellmann’s or Duke’s recommended.
  • Bacon – Cooked and drained.
  • Sliced Chicken – Deli slices, Rotisserie Chicken, or Leftover Chicken
  • Brie – A soft, creamy cheese. You may also use Camembert, Cheddar, or Monterey Jack.
  • Roasted Red Bell Pepper – Optional for grown-up version; Roast your own (and peel off the skin) or buy it already roasted in a jar.

Tips to Make a Fun Lunch for Your Children

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?
  • It is known that when your children help make their own lunches, they are more likely to eat them!
  • There are lots of ways to tweak this recipe. Ask your child if they’d rather have ham over chicken (perfect after Easter) or replace the peppers with lettuce and tomatoes.
  • Make sure to use an insulated lunch box to keep the sandwich cool. Add a lunch box ice pack to make sure the sandwich stays chilled. This will minimize the chances of a food-borne illness.

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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Where Did the Name Sandwich Originate?

The sandwich is named for the fourth Earl of Sandwich who liked to play cards and cribbage. He found putting beef between two slices of bread made an easy meal to eat with his hands without getting his cards greasy.

Can You Serve This Sandwich as a Grilled Cheese?

Yes. Spread the outer surfaces of the bread with softened butter or even mayonnaise. Mayonnaise won’t burn as easily as butter and is simple to spread right from the jar. Then cook on a skillet until both sides are browned and the cheese is melted.
