This sandwich has chicken and spice and everything YUM! Guacamole, bacon, cheese -- what are you waiting for? DIG IN!

Ingredients:
1 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) mashed avocado
1 tbsp. fresh salsa or pico de gallo
1 slice center-cut bacon or turkey bacon
1/4 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
1/8 tsp. each salt and black pepper
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
One 3-oz. raw boneless skinless chicken breast cutlet, pounded to 1/2-inch thickness
1 tbsp. fat-free liquid egg substitute (like Egg Beaters Original)
1 slice reduced-fat pepper jack cheese (like the kind by Sargento), see HG Tip
One 100-calorie flat sandwich bun (like Arnold Select/Brownberry/Oroweat Sandwich Thins)
1/2 lettuce leaf
1 large tomato slice

Directions:
In a small bowl, mix avocado with salsa or pico de gallo.

Cook bacon until crispy, either in a skillet over medium heat or on a microwave-safe plate in the microwave. (See package for cook time.)

Place cereal in a sealable plastic bag, seal, and finely crush with a meat mallet or other heavy utensil. Transfer crumbs to a wide bowl and stir in seasonings.

Place chicken in another wide bowl, top with egg substitute, and flip to coat. Shake to remove excess egg, and coat with crumbs.

Bring a skillet sprayed with nonstick spray to medium-high heat. Cook chicken for about 4 minutes per side, until cooked through.

Still in the skillet, top chicken with cheese. Cover and cook for 1 minute, or until cheese has melted.

Place chicken on the bottom half of the bun, cheesy side up. Break bacon strip in half and place over the chicken. Top with lettuce and tomato.

Spoon avocado mixture on top, and add the other bun half. Bite in!

Coco Chanel said that when it comes to accessorizing, always take one thing off before leaving the house. This sandwich could stand to take that advice, as it is WAY overdressed. Let's take a look: The chicken is breaded and fried, then topped with pepper jack cheese, bacon, guacamole, AND ranch dressing. WHY is there RANCH DRESSING on this thing, with all the other flavorful, decadent items already in place? And yes, we know this limited-time chick-wich is now gone from Wendy's menu... but that didn't stop us from making it over RIGHT. We faux-fried the chicken, whipped up a quick 'n easy guac, used reduced-fat bacon and cheese... and left off the ranch dressing. We think Coco would appreciate the result of our guilt-free know-how combined with her advice -- a sensible and sensational sandwich!

CHEW ON THIS:

Will somebody PLEASE explain to us why National Gingerbread Day is in June (specifically today, June 5th)? We refuse to celebrate it now, so we'll chew some Rocky Road Softies instead. (We're stubborn like that.)
