Double Downs should be made with real ingredients, the kind you can find yourself, and the type where you can pronounce all of the ingredients without college level chemistry courses.
That said, it shouldn’t be surprising that after out moment of grief in the neighborhood KFC, I would go on my way and create my own version. Enter the real Double Down for real eaters.
Super simple to create yourself, the sky’s the limit when it comes to your imagination.
Double Chicken Sandwich
Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Rub chicken with oil, cracked pepper and sea salt. Bake as directed for the type of chicken you’re working with. I began with frozen breasts and baked initially at 375 for 15 minutes, and then at 325 for 30 more minutes.
Let breasts cool.
I assembled as such:
- chicken breast, peppered side down
- special bacon spread
- top chicken breast, peppered side up

So it's good that I didn't get one then, eh?
dumb question of the day: is that bacon cooked? ta very much…
That is a good question. Yes, the bacon is cooked. I did the trichinosis thing once. I don't recommend it on any level, but I did some cool Exorcist tricks in the nurse's office!
Oooh, i meant to comment/query the bacon cooked-ness on the bacomacadamiannaise…is THAT bacon cooked?
Sorry about that… 😉
what exactly is the recipe for your special bacon spread? i would love to try the whole recipe 🙂 thanks
Hi, Tracey! the special spread wasn’t so awesome–trust me. I’d instead go with a zingy mayo or horseradish mayo. Chicken breasts can be so devoid of flavor.
do you have the nutrition info on this?

Hi there! I would say roughly 220 calories and 0 carbs for the chicken breasts (according to fitness pal) and then whatever you add to it.
Loved it! I made it on my husband Forman Grill and it was a quick lunch today!!
