  • 1
    In 4-quart saucepan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and fennel seed; cook and stir until garlic begins to brown and fennel seed begins to pop. Add onion, jalapeño and olives. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion begins to brown. Add sausage; cook about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is no longer pink. Stir in tomatoes, basil and oregano. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until sauce is reduced and liquid is almost absorbed.

    Meanwhile, in large deep skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp; drain on paper towels.
  • 3
    Sprinkle chicken strips on both sides with salt and pepper. In 3 separate shallow bowls, place flour, eggs and bread crumbs. Coat chicken strips with flour, then dip in egg and coat with bread crumbs. In same skillet, heat about 1/4 inch canola oil over medium heat. Cook chicken in hot oil 4 minutes, turning once, until no longer pink in center and bread crumbs are deep brown. Drain on paper towels.

    Set oven control to broil. Place rolls, cut sides up, on cookie sheet. Broil 1 minute or until toasted. On each roll bottom, place 3 cheese slices. Broil 1 minute longer or until cheese is melted. Place chicken strips on cheese-covered roll bottoms; squeeze lime over chicken. Top with sauce and bacon; cover with roll tops.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For a spicier sauce, keep in some of the jalapeño seeds.
  • tip 2
    The salt, pepper and flour more easily stick to the chicken if the chicken has first been patted dry with paper towel.
  • tip 3
    Before placing the chicken in the hot oil, sprinkle a few bread crumbs into the oil. If the crumbs immediately start to bubble and fry, the oil is ready.
  • tip 4
    To save some time, purchase precooked bacon and/or chicken fingers.
