It is speculated that the club sandwich — with its layers of chicken, tomatoes and bacon — was originally made at the Saratoga Club House in Saratoga Springs, New York, the same place that invented potato chips. The original version had only two pieces of bread.

Makes 1 sandwich

Ingredients

  • Bread, toasted -- 3 slices
  • Mayonnaise -- 3 tablespoons
  • Chicken breast, cooked and thinly sliced -- 1/4 pound
  • Tomato -- 3 to 4 slices
  • Cooked bacon -- 3 to 4 pieces
  • Lettuce -- 1 leaf

Method

  1. Spread the mayonnaise on one side of each of the slices of bread.
  2. Spread the sliced chicken on one of the slices of bread. Top with another slice of bread.
  3. Lay the tomatoes over the second slice of bread. Top with the bacon slices and the lettuce. Place the last slice of bread on top of that.
  4. About 1-inch in from each of the sides of the sandwich, insert a long toothpick. Carefully slice the sandwich on the diagonal into 4 triangles and serve with a side of potato chips.

Club Sandwich Variations

  • Turkey Club: Use sliced turkey breast instead of chicken.
