Description

Great summer sandwich! Easy, quick and absolutely scrumptious!

Ingredients

  • 1 head Garlic
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1  Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast, Cut In Half Horizontally
  • 1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Cracked Black Pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons Butter
  • 2  Whole Grain Ciabatta Rolls (sliced In Half Horizontally)
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Rosemary
  • 10  Fresh Basil Leaves
  • 1  Medium Tomato, Sliced
  • 4 ounces, weight Mozzarella Cheese, Sliced
  • 2 teaspoons Balsamic Vinegar

Preparation

Preheat an oven to 400 F.

Cut off the top of the head of garlic to expose the cloves, trimming about 1/4 inch off of the top of each clove. Drizzle the cut cloves with olive oil, then wrap in a piece of aluminum foil. Place in the preheated oven and bake until the cloves are tender, about 35 minutes. Remove garlic from oven and set it aside but do not turn oven off.

Once it’s cooled a little, squeeze garlic out of the cloves into a small dish; mash into a paste.

Season chicken breast halves with salt and pepper. In a medium pan, melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Once butter has turned slightly golden in color, place the chicken into the pan. Do not move it, and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side.

Meanwhile spread the remaining tablespoon of butter on the cut sides of the bread, sprinkle with rosemary, and place on a baking sheet. Toast bread in the preheated oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and spread with the garlic paste.

Remove chicken from pan, and set aside.

Top the bottom half of the sliced ciabatta with basil, tomatoes, chicken and mozzarella. Drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Return sandwich halves to the baking sheet.

Place in the hot oven and cook until the cheese has melted, about 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven and set aside. Allow sandwich to cool slightly before topping with the top half of the bread. Cut each sandwich in half and serve.
