Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never go to a diner again! This was the perfect crispy cheesy sandwich for dipping in a big bowl of Broccoli Cheddar Cheese soup! There is just my husband & myself so I used 1 cup of chicken, 1 TBSP mayo, dressing, & jam. It was perfect & full of flavor. Next time I'll skip the strip of bacon & just add real bacon bits to the mixture.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic Chicken + Bacon = Delicious What a simple yet delicious recipe! Loved the flavor combination of the Bacon Pepper Jam and Honey Dijon Vinaigrette. Used my thawed Magic Chicken, so it was ready in a snap! Planning to enjoy the leftover chicken salad as lettuce wraps for lunch tomorrow.
