Chicken Club Sandwiches with Lemon Dill Mayo

I really love sandwiches!  On busy nights we can be found eating Pesto Club Sandwiches, Hot Ham Hogies, BBQ Chicken sandwiches or these Gooey Ham Sandwiches with some french fries or fresh veggies.  Sandwiches just come together so quickly and the variations are endless, so there's no reason to ever get bored with them.  This version of a chicken club sandwich is simple and delicious.  I came up with this when I had a get together with some friends from college and it was a big hit.  The chicken is so tender and juicy and the Lemon Dill Mayo was perfect.

Just a note about the chicken.  You want it to be really thin.  A thick piece of chicken could spell disaster if it isn't easy to eat.  Cutting it lengthwise into 2 cutlets and then pounding them flat makes it so tender and easy to bite into.  The whole thing just melts in your mouth.  It can also be made earlier in the day to make mealtime completely no fuss!

Chicken Club Sandwiches with Lemon Dill Mayo
Serves 4

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut in half lengthwise and pounded thin
1 cup crushed butter flavored crackers (I used Ritz roasted vegetable flavor)
1 Tbs. butter
4-6 slices bacon, cooked
Fresh spinach
Fresh sliced tomatoes
8 sliced whole grain bread

Coat each piece of chicken in cracker crumbs.  Melt the butter in a skillet over medium high heat.  Cook the chicken until it is golden brown and cooked through.  Lightly toast the bread and spread with Lemon Dill Mayo.  Build the sandwich using the chicken, spinach, tomato, and bacon.

Lemon Dill Mayo

1/4 cup mayonnaise
Lemon zest, to taste
Juice of half a lemon
1/2 tsp. fresh chopped dill

Add all ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.  Refrigerate 1 hour to allow flavors to combine.
