Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Sandwich

It's been a light cooking week.  Things have been busy and we were out of town with more travel on the horizon which has meant a rather empty fridge.  Usually when we're busy or just get home from a trip, one of our "go-to's" is a rotisserie chicken.  It's a great convenience food.  I don't think it's going to be long before my hungry boys will be able to polish off one of those in one sitting, but for now, we usually have at least a small bit leftover.  This sandwich ended up being a great use for the leftovers.  Crispy outside, creamy melted Swiss on the inside paired with tangy homemade honey mustard and salty ham and chicken, it was a great quick lunch.  I have quite a few uses for leftover rotisserie chicken, but this one will definitely be remembered. 
Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Sandwich 
Per Sandwich:
1 English muffin (or bread, hard roll or croissant)
about 2 ounces (about 1/4 cup) shredded cooked rotisserie chicken
2 slices deli ham
1 slice (about 1 ounce) Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon brown or Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons butter

In a small bowl, stir together mustard and honey.  Spread on inside of English muffin.  Layer chicken, ham and cheese.  Squish both sides of sandwich together.  Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.  Cook sandwich in skillet, pressing down with a spatula until browned on each side and cheese is melted (about 2-3 minutes on each side).
