Brandon, the winner of the Spatulatta Cookbook Contest, is 8-years old and teases his mom because she doesn't cook. His mom works two jobs so let's not only give her a break. No, let's give her a big hand.

Brandon learned enough in the Spatulatta Kitchen to make meals for himself and his mom for the whole work week.

In this recipe, we're taking the left-over chicken from our Really Simple Baked Chicken recipe and making club sandwiches fit for a picnic dinner.

You'll need:

  • Left-over cooked chicken or deli chicken - sliced
  • 3 pieces of whole wheat bread per sandwich
  • Tomatoes - sliced
  • Lettuce - washed and patted dry on paper towels
  • Cooked bacon
  • Mayonnaise
  • Dijon mustard - optional
  • A little adult help


  • A toaster
  • A sharp knife
  • Paper towels
  • Tooth picks
  • A serving plate
  1. We started by cooking the bacon in the microwave between sheets of paper towels on a plate. Be careful when removing the plate from the microwave. The greasy towels will be hot enough to burn. Ask for adult help.
  2. Toast the bread and spread some mayo on one slice.
  3. Arrange the chicken, lettuce and tomato.
  4. Put the second slice of bread on top. Add a layer of bacon.
  5. Put mayo or mayo and a little Dijon mustard on the third piece of bread and put it mayo side down on top of the stack.
  6. Ask for help cutting the sandwich in quarters.
  7. Poke a toothpick through each quarter to hold the sandwiches together. Be sure to remove the toothpicks before you bite into this luscious sandwich.
