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

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

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, you should use Homemade Focaccia or 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.

    I made this sandwich (followed the recipe except for the bread, I used sourdough bread) and we love it! The sauce is the glue of the sandwich, the avocado adds a nice creamy and moist texture. Onions add some crunch. I would definitely make it again! Thanks a bunch Natasha.

    Natasha,
    Thank you both for the time & effort to professionally post these great recipes! I finally tried the chicken bacon avocado BLT sandwich. Used a multigrain bread instead & added cayenne to the sauce. Wow! So good! Makes for a great lunch. And my 2 cats loved it too! Looking forward to trying more recipes.

    I recently made this sandwich for our outdoor summer concert group.
    I used deli sliced chicken instead of the rotisserie chicken and muffaletta bread (ordered from a local Italian bakery) but otherwise adhered to the recipe.
    Our friends raved about it!

      Hi Parbathe, there are so many, but we don’t currently have a category for diabetic specific recipes. I would suggest starting it with any of our salads – particularly the ones that have avocado. The Chicken Avocado Salad is an all-time favorite and you could sub corn for cucumber to reduce the carb count in that one. Beyond that, with hundreds of recipes published, the best I could suggest would be to search our recipe index.

    Made these today for us and my friend and her husband (her birthday). They were wonderful. Even better than we expected. Used a seeded artisan bread from a great market and every one raved. The sauce too was unbelievably delicious. (sorry no pic). We decided we will definitely share these again. If I could give them more than 5 stars I would.

      Hi Lori, there are so many options, I’m not sure where to start. It depends on if you are looking for finger foods, then you might visit our appetizers page (Deviled eggs and bacon would be yummy!) and check out our sides category for side dish recipes.

      I’m going to make these this weekend for a family get-together, and I plan on making apple salad to go with them. It is apples, Craisins & celery with a mayo/Cool Whip dressing. My family loves it.
