Cobb Club Sandwich
Adapted from Rachael Ray 

4 slices bacon 
4 slices white or wheat sandwich bread
Extra-virgin olive oil (EVOO), for drizzling
Two 8-ounce pieces skinless, boneless chicken breast, halved lengthwise
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon butter
1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce
1 small avocado
1 tsp granulated garlic
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup blue cheese crumbles
1/4 cup sour cream 

2 leaves green-leaf lettuce 
4 slices tomato 
2 thin slices red onion 

1. Preheat the oven to 375°. Bake the bacon on a broiler pan until crisp, about 15 minutes.

2. While the bacon is cooking, toast the bread.

3. In a large skillet, heat a drizzle of EVOO over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook, turning once, until golden, about 6 minutes; season with salt & pepper. Stir in the butter and hot sauce.

4. In a small bowl, mash the avocado with the garlic and lemon juice. 

5. In another small bowl, mash the blue cheese with the crème fraîche. 

6. Spread the avocado mash on 2 slices of toast and top each with a lettuce leaf, a chicken breast half, 2 tomato slices, an onion slice and 2 bacon strips. 

7. Spread the blue cheese dressing on the remaining toasts and set on top. Slice and serve!
