Chicken BLT with Chipolte Mayonnaise and Roasted Tomatoes

Do you need a "recipe" for this sandwich?
Heck no, the title tells it all.

Do you need to see a hundred pictures of this sandwich? Of course not.

But the sandwich was really delicious . . .

And the sun made a rare appearance (yay!) which compelled me to get the camera out to have some fun.
(Why yes, the sandwich is just as good when it's luke warm.) :P

No recipe needed... but here's how I put it together:
First I baked the applewood smoked bacon in a shallow pan on a rack in the oven @ 350* (F) until done to perfection. The cherry tomatoes were rolled in a bit of olive oil, salted lightly then roasted in the oven until slightly charred and beginning to pop.

To make the chicken extra flavorful I marinated it in a little fresh lemon juice, chopped fresh oregano, and olive oil for about 10 minutes before grilling.
You can purchase ready-made chipolte mayonnaise, but I just whirred some mayo with enough chipolte from the can to make it as spicy as desired... slathered it on the grilled baguette, then continued to build the sandwich with crispy romain and baby spring greens.

It was very, very good.
And the taste of it (along with the sunshine) made my mind turn to spring and summer. :D
If you try it, I hope you love it as much as we did.
Enjoy your weekend everyone! xoxo
