Chicken and Roasted Pepper Sandwiches
Ingredients
1/4
cup olive oil
4
teaspoons red wine vinegar
1
tablespoon snipped fresh thyme
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper
4
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
4
slices Italian bread, 1-inch bias-cut
1/4
cup semisoft cheese with herbs or semisoft goat cheese (chevre)
1
cup roasted red sweet peppers (about one 7-ounce jar), cut into strips
1/2
cup fresh basil, watercress, or baby spinach leaves
Directions
  1. For marinade, in a small bowl whisk together oil, vinegar, thyme, salt, and crushed red pepper. Reserve 2 tablespoons of mixture; set aside.
  2. Place chicken between two sheets of plastic wrap; pound lightly with the flat side of a meat mallet to about 1/2-inch thickness. Place in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Add remaining marinade; seal bag. Marinate at room temperature about 15 minutes or in the refrigerator for up to 1 hour.
  3. Lightly grease the rack of an indoor electric grill or lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill. Drain chicken, discarding marinade. Place chicken on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close the lid. Grill until chicken is no longer pink (170 degrees degrees F). For a covered grill, allow 3 to 4 minutes. For an uncovered grill, allow 8 to 10 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling.
  4. Brush cut sides of bread with reserved marinade. Place bread, cut sides down, on grill rack. If using a covered grill, close the lid. Grill until lightly toasted. For a covered grill, allow 1 to 2 minutes. For an uncovered grill, allow 2 to 4 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling. Remove bread from grill.
  5. To serve, place a chicken breast on each grilled bread slice. Spread with cheese. Top each sandwich with sweet pepper and basil. Makes 4 sandwiches.
