Deluxe Chicken and Roasted Pepper Sandwich
- In a small dish whisk together the oil, vinegar, thyme, salt, and crushed red pepper. Remove and reserve 2 tablespoons of the marinade. Place chicken between 2 sheets of waxed paper; pound lightly with a meat mallet to make an even thickness about 1/2-inch thick; place in a plastic bag. Add the remaining marinade. Seal bag and marinate about 15 minutes at room temperature or up to 1 hour in the refrigerator.
- Lightly grease the rack of an indoor electric grill or lightly coat with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat grill. Brush cut sides of bread with reserved marinade; place bread, cut side 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; set aside.
- Place chicken on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close the lid. Grill until chicken is tender and no longer pink. (For a covered grill, allow 3 to 4 minutes; for an uncovered grill, allow 8 to 10 minutes, turning once halfway through grilling.) Remove from grill and spread or sprinkle with cheese.
- To serve, place one chicken breast on each grilled bread slice. Top with roasted pepper strips and watercress. Makes 4 servings.
