A fresh, satisfying but light sandwich.

I love a good chicken strip sandwich. It reminds me of lovely summers at the golf course. Enjoyable heartiness without being too heavy, the basil cream cheese adds a fresh flavor. Goes great with an icy glass of lemonade!



  • 1 pound chicken strips
  • 1/2 pound bacon
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Pepper to taste
  • 2 bread slices per sandwich
  • 1 slice Swiss cheese per sandwich
  • 1 slice pepper jack cheese per sandwich
  • 6 cucumber slices
  • 2 lettuce leaves
  • Green onion slices to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (163 C)
  2. Wrap each chicken strip in bacon, spiral fashion.
  3. Bake bacon wrapped chicken in oven for about 15-20 minutes, until cooked through but tender.
  4. In a Ninja or medium bowl, pulse/mix basil, garlic, whipping cream, salt, and pepper until light and fluffy.
  5. Spread basil mixture on each bread slice half.
  6. Layer sandwich with bacon wrapped chicken strips, cheeses, cucumbers, lettuce, and onions.

Serve with chips and lemonade, enjoy!
