Chicken Bacon Avocado Sandwich

Chicken Bacon Avocado Sandwich with "secret sauce" - A Kneaders Bakery Copycat Recipe | NatashasKitchen.com

This sandwich was inspired by Kneader’s Bakery turkey bacon avocado sandwich. We subbed the turkey for rotisserie chicken so it was super easy. The only thing we cooked was bacon.

I took a tiny packet of their special sauce home with me and tested several versions before coming up with this Mustard Mayo. I thought it was just as good as their special sauce. It has just 3 simple ingredients that you probably have in your fridge. You’ll want it on all your sandwiches!

Keep this one in mind when you have company over and want to impress them but don’t have a ton of time to cook :).

P.S. If you can’t find focaccia, use your favorite artisan bread – you’ll love it just as much :). PPS. You can make the sauce in advance and enjoy delicious sandwiches all week long.

This is a copycat of Kneader's turkey bacon avocado sandwich except we subbed the turkey for rotisserie chicken. The copycat sauce was just as good and has just 3 simple ingredients!

    I made this sandwich for dinner tonight, for me and my husband. Really fantastic, and loved the sauce! My husband wanted maple bacon, and it was delicious! I wouldn’t change a thing, but he said he’d prefer ciabatta bread next time. Reply

    As a previously Kneaders employee, I’m actually really impressed by how close your recipe is to what they actually make in the store. I love doing this at home and I can’t wait until thanksgiving so I can do it with real turkey! Reply

    Dear Natasha, I made up several of your recent recipes for a dinner party this week in Australia. I modified the Raspberry Pretzel Jello into a beautiful Strawberry mousse dessert, and will send you the recipe I made. I enjoyed making your mini toasts and filled eggs, beautiful also. I made the Butterfly pasta dish with avocado, Yum. I served with chicken and veg pies and a potato bake. It was delicious success. I also did the salad plate from Olga B. It was Oh, so beautiful and delicious. I was thrilled to bits. Thankyou. Reply

    Hi Natasha. Can I make this sandwich ahead? Will avocado still taste good?? Thanks! PS I was hoping to take these to a picnic or a lake/ocean Reply

    • Natasha

      How far ahead? The avocado will taste fine, but it will brown if you make it too far in advance. Also, if making the sandwich in advance, as with any sandwich, I would recommend adding the sauce before serving. This way your bread will not get soggy. Reply

        Yes, this was my question too. I was thinking about making this sandwich for my kids to school. So I’ll make it around 6:30 am and they are going to eat it around 11 am. Do you think it would be ok? Or should I go with smth else? Thank you. Reply

          Hi, Sandwhiches which have meat in them or dairy (cheese), should be kept chilled. I would definitely recommend using an ice pack to keep the sandwich cool and fresh. Reply

    Oh my Natasha! It looks really good! It’s such a great idea that you used rotisserie chicken to subbed the turkey. I’m really in love with your recipes. The sandwich looks deliciously healthy and the ingredients especially the veggies look so fresh. Yummy! Reply

      Thanks Maureen :). It was so easy and there wasn’t much difference in flavor compared to their slow roasted turkey (maybe because turkey tends to be dryer and tougher?). Anyways, I hope you love this sandwich. It’s officially my favorite 🙂 Reply

    do you think this will taste good a few hours after made? Like to eat at work? Reply

      I think it would taste great even a few hours later if it’s refrigerated. For best results, I would recommend packaging the dressing separately so it doesn’t get absorbed by the bread. You can buy tiny containers with lids at most grocery stores. I use them for my sons lunch. Reply

  • June 11, 2015

    YUM! Sandwiches truly are comfort food. I’m going to try this on a whole-grain bread…I know it won’t be exactly the same, but sometimes compromise is necessary… Reply

    This sandwich looks so delicious! I make a similar looking sandwich with leftover grilled chicken 🙂 The bacon and avocado is the best part, especially with a garden fresh tomato! Reply

      mmmm leftover grilled chicken would be yummy too with that little extra smokiness. Yum! I agree about the garden fresh tomato and I can’t wait for them t ripen in my Mom’s yard 🙂 Reply

      I bought it directly from Kneaders bakery because I think they make it best :). You can use any good quality soft bread, like the artisan loaves from Costco for example. It will still be amazing! Reply

    This sandwich looks so appetizing! I’m definitely making it next week! I also tried making my own focaccia bread before and it turned out great! I used Chef John’s receipt (youtube “Food Wishes”) and highly recommend you trying as well if you haven’t already! Maybe even post your own version to go along with the sandwich!

    Thanks!

      Svetlana, I buy roasted chicken, either at Costco or Fred Meyer. You can roast a chicken at home, just takes more time :). Reply

    • June 10, 2015

      We totally use the rotisserie chickens around here! So easy. Going to show this to wife to make for my lunch since she packs my lunch every day for me. I better get that bacon on!!! Reply
