Southwestern Chicken Sandwiches

I have a confession. And I am not proud of this... at all. I waste food. I always have so much food in the house, but I buy more. Which leads to waste. Ugh... it's a bad habit. I am trying to brake this bad habit though. I am challenging myself to not go grocery shopping until the pantry is almost bare. I need to make meals using what I have! Sounds easy right? Well... not for me. But here goes my best efforts!

I had some sandwich rolls to use up so I decided to make a southwestern chicken sandwich. They were easy to make and quite tasty. The ingredients below are for 1 sandwich, just multiply the quantities by how many sandwiches you would need!

1 sandwich roll
1 chicken breast, or two thin sliced chicken breasts
2-3 tablespoons Spicy Ranch dressing
2 slices of cooked bacon- chopped
1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1/2 tablespoon cajun seasoning
Romaine lettuce

1- Rub both sides of a chicken breast with cajun seasoning. Grill until cooked through- slice.
2- Toss the chicken, chopped bacon, and spicy ranch together in a bowl until it is evenly coated.
3- Lay the chicken on top of a roll. Top with cheddar cheese.
4- Place the sandwich in an oven or toaster oven, bake until the cheese melts and the bread is slightly toasty.
5- Top with the romaine lettuce and enjoy.
