Try whipping up Open Face Chicken Caprese Sandwiches for a quick and easy dinner on a hectic Wednesday (or any weekday) night. They’re incredibly delicious, filling, and, best of all, ready in just 15 minutes.
Plus they’re covered in melted cheese!
Start the Open-Face Chicken Caprese Sandwiches by seasoning chicken breasts cut into strips with salt & pepper.
Saute the strips on a non-stick sprayed skillet over medium-high heat for about 3-4 minutes a side, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
Remove the chicken to a plate and set it aside.
Meanwhile, slice up some bread for the base of the sandwich. You want something hearty like a crusty baguette or loaf of French bread.
Slice the bread at an angle, then lightly butter 2 slices per person, and toast them under the broiler until they’re just barely golden brown along the edges.
While the bread’s toasting, slice up a couple of juicy tomatoes.
Next, slice up zee cheeeese and tomatoes.
Now, mozzarella is what’s usually used in caprese salads, etc, but I had fontina on hand which is mild in flavor like mozz, plus I love how it melts. Feel free to use either!
Once the bread is toasted, layer on the sauteed chicken and tomato slices.
Pop the pieces back under the broiler until the cheese melts and the fillings are warm, then crack some black pepper on top.
Check your watch, ’cause that’s it!
