This Chicken Club Sandwich with Apple and Bacon is everything a great sandwich should be. Tender slices of deli chicken, nestled between tart Granny Smith apples, crispy bacon slices, and melted gooey provolone cheese. And, the crowning glory, a deliciously sweet Vidalia Onion Poppy Seed Vinaigrette.

Sharon's Expert Tips:
You can substitute a bottled sweet onion vinaigrette or poppyseed salad dressing for the Vidalia onion poppyseed dressing.
I like the tartness of the Granny Smith apple in this sandwich, but you can certainly substitute any other type of apple you have on hand or happen to like.
You can also substitute sliced turkey and make a turkey club sandwich, instead of the chicken.
