Chicken Carbonara Sub

So I know that I've been MIA lately, but it's been an absolutely impossible past few weeks. Once I explain, I think you'll understand why I may or may not be emotionally traumatized. But probably.

1. I was given a puppy. Within 3 days, that puppy was back with its original owner. My heart=broken. I would go into details, but as I write this, my eyes are tearing up. Would you mind if I moved on to my second dilemma?
2. I got sick. Real sick. I don't think I've called in sick to work since high school, but I lost 12 lbs. in three days and was out for three days. Honestly, I don't remember much. I get flashes of memories that involve popsicles, my bathroom and my bear, Stuart. Weird.
3. My husband left me. Well, temporarily. He's off to Africa for a good long while, so I've been left here, abandoned by husband and puppy. Sigh.

Now that I've completely depressed you, let's talk sandwiches! I am always on the look out for hearty sandwiches, and sometimes I steal ideas. I am a sandwich thief. I thieve sandwiches. Whatever. This sandwich is based off of the Quizno's "classic." It's a creamy, bacon-y miracle. If there ever was such a thing.

Ingredients (1 sandwich):

  • Thick, fresh bread from the deli. The good stuff. The bread makes or breaks a sandwich.
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 1/2 cup alfredo sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • Salt/pepper
  • 3 slices bacon of precooked, microwaveable bacon
  • 2 slices swiss or provolone cheese
  • Cut up chicken breast into small pieces. Cook on stove on medium heat until cooked thoroughly.
  • Drain any liquid/fat. Add the alfredo sauce, garlic and salt/pepper. Combine and leave to sit on a medium-low heat.
  • Cook bacon separately and set aside.
  • Place cheese on either half of the bread and toast or broil until cheese is bubbly and bread is crusty.
  • Crumble cooked bacon and set aside.
    • I didn't crumble my bacon but put the slices whole on the bread. In hindsight, I wish I would have crumbled it.
  • Top bread with chicken/alfredo mixture and bacon. Serve warm.

I know people who also add sauteed mushrooms to this. I don't do shrooms for health reasons (as in, I could care less about my health when I'm eating this sandwich). 

Love and get-me-a-sandwich,
