Pepper Jack Chicken Club Grilled Cheese

Pepper Jack Chicken Club Grilled Cheese are not your ordinary sandwiches.

Pepper Jack Chicken Club Grilled Cheese Sandwiches are filled with crispy bacon, tender chicken, and gooey melted cheese. #SecretRecipeClub

Sandwiches are a busy cooks best friend. Your options are nearly limitless. The different types of bread alone to choose from now is astounding. That being said, we eat a lot of ham or roast beef sandwiches with the occasional chicken or tuna salad.

When I got my July Secret Recipe Club assignment I wanted to make something savory because the blog has been a little heavy on the sweet stuff lately. So I browsed the main dishes this month.

Michaela’s blog An Affair from the Heart has so many amazing looking recipes. Taco Tot Casserole is something I can see being a huge hit with my family.

However, when I saw her recipe for Chipotle Chicken Club Grilled Cheese I knew I found a winner. I mean chicken, bacon, and cheese. Yes, please.

I did make a couple of small changes to the recipe. I couldn’t find the chipotle cheese that Michaela used so I substituted my favorite pepper Jack. I also used two pieces of bacon per sandwich to make sure I had enough for breakfast a couple of days later. My eldest nephew would be highly upset if we didn’t have bacon when he was here.

The sandwiches turned out delicious and will be made frequently. I bet they will be delicious with some tomato soup during the colder months.

  4. Looks great! I love the combination of pepperjack and chicken together.

  5. You really can’t go wrong with bacon and cheese, can you? 🙂 Adding some chicken makes it a more filling meal. I was actually recently introduced to grilled cheese again, and now it’s a staple for lunch on the go. Cheese keeps everything stuck together so kiddo can feed himself. 🙂

  6. Sounds delicious!

  7. What a great take on grilled cheese! Yum! Visiting from SRC B!
