Make the Club Sandwich
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Rub every crevice of the chicken generously with olive oil, then sprinkle with plenty of kosher salt, black pepper, cayenne, and paprika.
Bake for about 35 minutes, then brush the top of the chicken with the juices. Return to oven for 5 minutes to brown the top.
Remove from oven. If it isn’t brown enough at this point, baste again, turn up the oven temp, and bake for another 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let it slightly cool. Once it is cool and easy to handle, remove the chicken breast from its bone and cut into thin slices. Set aside.
Place the bacon on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook until crispy, about 18 minutes. Remove and set aside.
Toast the bread. Spread a generous amount of the tangerine or blood orange mayo on 3 slices of bread. On the first slice of bread, add several pieces of chicken, tomato slices and a slice of cheese. Add the second slice of bread. Add some lettuce, several pieces of bacon and a slice of ham. Top off with the last piece of bread. Enjoy this delicious club sandwich.
