  1. Preheat oven to 400.
  2. Fry bacon until crisp. Transfer to paper-lined plate and pour all but 1 tablespoon of bacon fat out of pan.
  3. Pat chicken dry and season with salt and pepper. Cook chicken in bacon fat until browned on one side, about 4 minutes. Flip chicken and add BBQ sauce and water.
  4. Cover, reduce heat to medium and simmer until chicken is cooked through and sauce is slightly thickened, about 8 minutes.
  5. Remove chicken from pan and cut into bite-sized pieces. Arrange onion rolls cut side up on a baking sheet.
  6. Divide chicken among bottom halves of rolls. Top with sauce, cheese, and bacon.
  7. Bake open-faced sandwiches until cheese melts and rolls are golden brown, about 4 minutes. Top each sandwich with toasted roll top.
