I often profess my love for sandwiches. There are so many sandwich combinations you can make that it would really be hard to tire of them. Summer is also a great time to have sandwich fixings on hand for quick lunches or dinners in between trips to the lake or pool.

“Too few people understand a really good sandwich.”

— James Beard

What craft beer pairs well with BBQ Chicken & Bacon Sandwiches:

The beer: Floridian Hefeweizen from Funky Buddha.

I fell in LOVE with this one while we were down in Florida on vacation. It’s a light drinkable beer that’s full of citrus notes and is similar to the blonde styles that I love so much.

What should I watch on TV while eating a sandwich?

Of course, this Mitten Movie Night HAS to be all about binging Stranger Things. While I didn’t make an Indiana Themed menu as I did for Season One, this chicken sandwich is tasty no matter where you live.

How to make BBQ Chicken & Bacon Sandwiches:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

This recipe uses already cooked chicken breasts. Cooking up a few in the crock-pot then shredding is a quick meal must!

On a sheet pan split 6 brioche hamburger buns in half. Butter the tops and place face down on one half of the pan. Place the bottom half on the plan and spread the shredded cheese evenly between the 6 bottom sides.

How to prepare chicken sandwiches for baking.

Top with the pre-cooked shredded chicken, splitting the chicken evenly over the bottoms.

Place in the oven and bake 12 minutes.

Cook the bacon to the desired doneness then remove and drain on a paper towel covered plate.

Quick Coleslaw Recipe:

In a small bowl combine the coleslaw mixture, mayonnaise, vinegar, mustard, and sugar.

Making it up to a half-hour early and placing it in the refrigerator makes sure all the flavors meld together beautifully.

Coleslaw makes for a great BBQ chicken sandwich topping. It’s creamy and crunchy and best of all, easy to make. Placing homemade coleslaw on top of a sandwich takes you to the pinnacle of sandwich Nirvana.

How to assemble BBQ chicken sandwiches

Now it’s time to assemble these BBQ Chicken Sandwich with coleslaw.

Top the baked bottom half of the sandwich with BBQ sauce of your choice. Add the coleslaw. Now the bacon. Finally, more BBQ Sauce.

Fall for me is easily my favorite time of year.  So much so that my husband and I chose it for our wedding.  It also doesn’t hurt that we live in a beautiful State that is at it’s peak during Autumn.  A few years ago for our anniversary we headed to Traverse City and I have to say that the drive up was just magical. Enough about ‘falling’ in love with Fall and on to the recipe.

When Michigan weather is giving us it’s best version of Frozen, to fight the cold I try to stay armed with comfort food classics like this Cream of Chicken Bake.

Since the sauce is made with a combination of cream of chicken soup and a few other ingredients, I thought that would be the best name for this.  As the chicken bakes the soup, milk, garlic powder, and oregano make a delicious gravy that is perfect for topping on mashed potatoes, another comfort food favorite!

The melted cheese just tucks into every corner, the sweet onions, bites of ham all on top of tender chicken. I mean LOOK AT THIS! If this isn’t comfort food, I don’t know what it.

Speaking of cozy food, want more comfort food recipes to try?

How to make Cream of Chicken Bake:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.

Dice the ham and onions.  Place the ham into a bowl and set aside.

Take some butter and add to a frying pan. Sautee until a light brown then remove them and place into a bowl.

While cooking the onion combine the flour, garlic powder and oregano to a plate.  Split 3 chicken breasts so that they are now between 6-7 pieces.

To the same pan that the onion was cooked, add the olive oil.  Dredge chicken in flour mixture then add to pan.  Brown 2-3 minutes on each side.  You will not cook these all the way through, this is just to brown the chicken so cook 2-3 minutes per side only.
