Bacon Chicken Salad with Creamy Spicy Dijon Dressing

This Bacon Chicken Salad is a different take on a club sandwich and one of my favorite lunches. We also often serve them in mini versions at party buffets as a terrific finger food that people really enjoy. When I make homemade flatbreads I always freeze extra so that any  leftover chicken I have on hand can be used to make these terrific sandwiches.  If using them as party food, you can use two round flatbreads and cut them into wedges for serving.  I make flatbreads on my gas grill but I also sometimes use an unoiled cast iron pan to cook them during the winter months. You can find my recipe for flatbreads here.
