I am not much for cold sandwiches except my Chicken Salad with Apples and Grapes, and my kicked up Egg Salad Sandwiches.  The warm ooey-gooey sandwich that has cheese stringing down your chin when you take a big bite is my kind of sandwich.  Grilled cheese is hot and gooey and makes me happy.  In this BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese, I combined my love for grilled cheese with my love for bbq chicken.  

I dream about my husbands grilled BBQ Chicken.  It is amazing and a must for any summer grilling but when I cannot have his chicken this fantastic BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese is my first choice for any meal.  It is loaded with melted stringy cheese, BBQ Sauce, Bacon, and Chicken.  I could seriously eat this sandwich daily, and it would take years to get tired it.  You have to give this kicked up grilled cheese a try soon.  You will need to grab a napkin to wipe the deliciousness off your chin. 

How do I prepare BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese?

Butterfly Your Chicken For This BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese

After seasoning and cooking chicken breast in the oven, I slice the chicken in half like you would if you were butterflying it.  See Video.  I prepared my Oven Fried Bacon at the same time I cooked the chicken.  To put this sandwich together, I added my favorite bbq sauce, chicken, bacon, sweet onion (optional), and lots of cheese.

BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese Secret

Add a layer of Mayonaise to the outside of the bread.  The bread will turn golden brown every time.  I picked up this trick from watching Chef Wolfgang Puck grilling a panini.

  2. hi my name is Tammy and i would love to make that bbq chicken grilled sandwich but when u say butterfly chicken what does that mean please let me know it looks yummy i cant wait to try it

    • Tammy,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes for our Daily Bread and leaving me a comment. I love BBQ Chicken Grilled Cheese. I hope you get a chance to try it. It was so difficult for me to put into writing how to cut the chicken. When you butterfly a piece of meat, you cut it in half horizontally. It ends up being the same size of a full chicken breast but half as thick. If you get a chance, watch my video. I cut the chicken breast in it.

      Thank you so much for your support!

      Many blessings,
      Diane Roark
