Slice the bread and toast. When the bread is done, add the cooked chicken cutlets, roasted red pepper, mozzarella, sliced tomatoes, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar. Top with the bread to make a sandwich. Slice in half to make it easier to eat.
Chicken cutlets: You can use pre-made breaded chicken cutlets or make them yourself.
Roasted red peppers: You can make homemade roasted red peppers or store bought roasted red peppers.
Bread: I like to use Italian bread, french bread/baguette. I love toasting it to make it extra crispy.

Equipment can have a big impact on how a recipe turns out. Stone bakeware takes longer to heat up than metal pans, and also retain heat for longer, which could make the recipe more watery, or burnt on the outsides.

The chicken can be frozen for up to 3 months. The vegetables and cheese won't stand well to freezing. The bread wont last long in either fridge or freezer.
Toast the bread for extra crispiness.Print
