Grilled Chicken Peppers Caprese Sandwich

Saturday, August 29, 2015
I had this Grilled Chicken Peppers Caprese Sandwich while on a vacation and decided to recreate it at home, it was better than the first time I tried this!

After tweaking it just a bit and making a flavorful baked chicken first, this is now my all-time favorite caprese sandwich gourmet style!

The biggest difference is how I cooked the chicken, I baked it with lime juice instead of fried it.

I have to say this is one fantastic tasting sandwich!

What you will need:

  • Boneless chicken breasts sliced thin
  • creole seasoning
  • minced garlic
  • olive oil
  • sauteed spinach
  • roasted peppers
  • sliced plum tomato
  • provolone cheese or mozzarella
  • lime juice freshly squeezed
  • Italian thick sliced bread
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • red pepper flakes

Here's all I did:

  1. I sauteed spinach in garlic and olive oil with little red pepper flakes.
  2.  I baked the boneless thin-sliced chicken breasts in the oven sprinkled with creole seasoning with squeezed fresh lime juice and some minced garlic drizzled a little olive oil on each piece along with salt, pepper to taste.
  3. Baked it till the juices ran clear on 350 degrees around 20 minutes.
  4. Take two slices of thick Italian bread, thick-sliced plum tomato, added some roasted peppers, spinach, ending with chicken and provolone cheese on top.
  5. I then place the Italian bread stack and grilled it in olive oil until the cheese melted on both sides.

This is one of the best sandwiches I ever ate.

Next time I will add some sauteed grilled mushrooms too!
