June 5: Tuscan Chicken Sandwich

I ate this sandwich at Einstein's the other day and loved it so I came home and made it for me and Ian's dinner tonight. It is so delish!
Plain bagel, regular or thin
chicken breast
1 slice muenster cheese
1 slice tomato
Balsamic vinegar
olive oil
dried basil

Pour a little olive oil in a bowl. Sprinkle the oil with dried basil. Let it sit for a minute or two. Pound chicken breast so that it is uniform in size. Spread basil olive oil over chicken breast. Grill chicken breast until done. Salt and pepper the chicken breast as you cook it. (You can also George Foreman the chicken breasts.) Slice chicken in strips. 

Brush the insides of a sliced bagel with a small amount of olive oil. Broil bagel halves until light brown. Sprinkle the top half of bagel with balsamic vinegar.

Assemble sandwich:
Bagel bottom
sliced chicken
slice of Muenster cheese 
(now place it under broiler to melt cheese)
Top of bagel

Slice the bagel in half and enjoy!
