Bacon chicken burgers with sweet slaw

This recipe is from taste of home's simple and delicious magazine.  It turned out surprisingly tasty.  I liked the cheese melted on top of of the tomatoes.  It held them in place.  The original recipe called for pre-cooked bacon and spinach.  I just used regular bacon and lettuce because we had just had spinach the day before.  I made 6 sandwiches.  It left me with one left over chicken.  I thought that it wouldn't reheat well, but was pleasantly surprised that it did.
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (I actually used 3 very large and chopped them in half.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper (didn't measure salt of pepper.  Just sprinkled.)
  • 2 teaspoon canola oil
  • 2 roma tomatoes - sliced (that is what I ended up using - less if using large tomatoes or making less sandwiches)
  • 6 slices swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 4 buns (I used 6)
  • 1 - 1 1/2 cup chopped lettuce
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked

Flatten chicken to 1/2 inch thickness; sprinkle with salt and pepper.  In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chicken in oil for 4-5 minutes on each side or until chicken juices run clear.  Meanwhile, combine chutney and mayo.  Spread over roll bottoms.  Top with lettuce.  Top each chicken breast half with  2 slices tomato and 1 slice cheese.  Cover and cook for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.  Add chicken to the bun and finish with the top of the bun.  Serve with slaw
