  • 2 slices of bacon

  • 1 Honeycrisp apple, sliced thin

  • 2 sprigs fresh thyme

  4. Sauté for approximately 2-4 minutes or until they start to soften.

  5. Remove the apples from the skillet and place them onto the plate with the bacon.

  6. Add some of the bacon grease back on and add in the chicken cutlets.

  7. Cook the chicken for approximately 2-3 minutes on each side or until the chicken is cooked through.

  8. During the last minute of cooking add the cheddar cheese to the top of the chicken and cover the skillet with a lid or piece of foil until the cheese is melted.

  9. Spread the Honey Mustard Spread on all 4 slices of toasted bread.

  10. Place the cooked chicken on 2 slices of the bread and top with the bacon and apples.

  11. Top with the remaining slices of bread and serve.
