Some things are perfect the way they are, and no amount of fussing is going to improve upon the original. This is one of those things. This sandwich isn’t big, it’s not fancy, and I dare you not to like it.

Makes 1 sandwich
2 slices crisp, hot buttered toast
Cooked sliced chicken, as much as you want (a store-bought rotisserie chicken works well)
4 slices peeled ripe tomato
Mayonnaise, homemade or store-bought
3 or 4 slices crisp, hot bacon
Construct in this order: 1 slice of toast, chicken, tomato,mayonnaise, bacon, lettuce, and the second slice of toast. The mayonnaise then holds the bacon and prevents slipping and sliding.
