directions

Step 1

Fry the chicken breasts in 1 tbsp butter and the canola oil in a skillet over medium-high heat until done in the middle, about 8 minutes. Set aside.

Step 2

To assemble the sandwiches, spread a generous amount of mustard on half of the bread slices. Spread a generous amount of ranch dressing on the other half. (Definitely be generous; when the sandwiches cook, these will turn into more of a “sauce.”)

Step 3

On the ranch-covered slices of bread, place a slice of cheese, a piece of chicken, 2 slices of bacon and a second slice of cheese. Top each with the mustard-covered slice of bread. Butter the outsides of the bread generously with the remaining 4 tbsp butter, then grill in a panini maker. (If you do not have a panini maker, you can grill the sandwiches in a skillet, laying a heavy skillet on top of the sandwiches to press them together. Turn to grill the other side in the same way.)

Step 4

Slice the sandwiches in half and gobble them down immediately.
