Grilled Chicken Bacon and Cheese Sliders

Well, it's in no way grilling season around here (even though it should be) but I figured it was time to dust off the old grill and make these fantastic sliders. This is the first time I've used the grill since last fall. These tasty little sandwiches make the perfect meal for game days and BBQ's. Chicken, Bacon, and Cheese. What's not to love?

Grilled Chicken Bacon and Cheese Sliders
Adapted slightly from The Pioneer Woman Cooks

4 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
16 slices Thin Bacon, cut in half and cooked crisp
Cajun Spice
16 Small Dinner Rolls
16 slices Cheese Of Your Choice (we used swiss, pepper jack, and cheddar)
Bottled Sauces Of Your Choice (we used Stubbs BBQ)
Toppings Of Your Choice (Tomato Slices, Grilled Onions, Lettuce, Etc.)

Slice each chicken breast in to half by length and by width.  (The chicken will slice much easier when slightly frozen.)  You will end up with sixteen small patties.
Place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the chicken pieces and pound gently with a rolling pin or meat mallet to flatten slightly.
Season with Cajun spice
Over medium high heat grill chicken pieces for 4-5 minutes and then flip them over on the other side and cook until done.
Brush chicken with BBQ Sauce.
Lay a slice of cheese on top of each piece of chicken to melt & then top with a couple of bacon slices.
Top with toppings of your choice.
Place chicken pieces in between halved dinner rolls. Enjoy!
