Grilled Cheesy Bacon & Chicken Sandwiches

“These came about when DBF and I were camping and we were cleaning out the coolers! We had leftover BBQ's chicken and a few pieces of bacon from breakfast. Try them on the grill as they are not nearly as good done in a pan on the stove. Any cooked chicken will work, try it with a spicy fajita style or BBQ like we did!”
2 sandwiches
