Chimichicken Bacon Ranch Sandwich

I had a lot of leftovers from the various things I'd cooked up and found a fantastic way to make another savory treat.
Delicious grilled chicken? Crispy Bacon? Chimichurri Ranch? A nice winter afternoon grilling session?
Let's kick this thing off.

1 panino roll
1 raw chicken breast
3 pieces bacon
2 oz cheese (I used the Smoked Peppercorn White Cheddar)
1 tbsp chimichurri
3 tbsp buttermilk ranch
salt and pepper

Get a grill fired up!

I prefer thinner pieces of chicken on a sandwich, so I filleted the chicken breast into 2 pieces. I then hit both sides of both pieces with a generous amount of salt and pepper.

Mix up the chimichurri and ranch. Grate the cheese. Slice the bun.

Toss the chicken on when the grill is plenty fiery.

When the chicken is ready to be flipped, do it! At this point you should also add the bacon to the grill, top the flipped chicken with the cheese(might need to wait a bit if you don't fillet the chicken breast), and put the bun on the grill. Flip the bacon after a minute or two. Add the chimichurri ranch to the top bun after it's toasted.

Build that beast and enjoy!
