Baja Chicken Sandwiches

Inspired by Quiznos
.
2 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded or coarsely chopped
1/4 c. chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 red onion, sliced thinly
1/2 - 3/4 lb. cheddar cheese, sliced
1/2 lb. bacon, cooked
3/4 - 1 c. Open Pit BBQ sauce, your favorite flavor (I like the spicy variety)
your bread of choice (we used what we had in the house, which was my whole wheat bread, but next time I will use a long sandwich roll, for presentation purposes.)
.
Turn your oven up to broil. Prepare ingredients as described above. On a broil pan, cookie sheet or preheated baking stone, place bread with top and bottom crusts down, open-faced. Place cheddar slices on all pieces of bread. Broil for 2-3 minutes until cheese is just melted. In the meantime, mix BQQ sauce and chicken in small bowl. When rolls come out of the oven, evenly distribute chicken mixture over cheese. Broil 2-3 more minutes until nice and hot and BQQ sauce in bubbly. Top chicken mixture with bacon slices, red onions and cilantro. Place bun tops over bottoms and cut sandwiches in half. Serve hot.
