Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Sandwiches

When you think of a Make Ahead Meal, casseroles are the first thing that usually comes to mind.  While I love a good casserole smothered in cheese as good as the next southern gal, my DH does not.  This sandwich is a Make Ahead Meal we both can agree on.

It is actually a double Make Ahead -
1.  Marinate and freeze the chicken breasts,
2.  Grill chicken and cook bacon a day or two before serving while you are cooking something else.

On the day you plan to serve these yummy sandwiches, all you have to do is heat, assemble and serve.

Honey Mustard Bacon Chicken Sandwiches

Honey Mustard Marinade -

1/3 c dijon mustard
1/4 c honey
1 t cayenne pepper
2 T red wine vinegar
1/4 c oil
6 - 8 boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Put chicken breasts in a ziploc freezer bag.  Mix first 5 ingredients.  Add to chicken breasts.   Freeze until needed.  When ready to cook, thaw in refrigerator - chicken will marinate as it thaws.  Grill and serve.
