#4 Lemon & Basil Chicken Sandwich

I was SO happy when Josh made this creation. He has made it for me a few times since then and every time it makes me happy!

A few months ago we visited Salt Lake City (SLC) with Josh’s family. After Josh’s brother was kicked out of a bar we had to find another place to eat. Haha. (We wanted to try a supposedly amazing burger and Josh’s brother didn’t have the right documentation because they ID everyone). Our second choice didn’t pan out, so we finally went to a little Italian deli in the downtown SLC. It was really simple food, but I really enjoyed it. I ordered a lemon and basil grilled chicken sandwich. The flavors were so fresh. Afterwards, I mentioned to Josh a couple of times that he should try to make something like it. I have a fetish with lemon flavored food. He makes me lemon linguine quite a bit. 🙂 He decided to mix it up one day and made his own version of the sandwich and what he made far surpassed this little deli’s sandwich.

Recipe:

Ciabatta bread

Fresh basil leaves

Slices of baby Mozzarella

Spinach leaves

Breaded baked chicken breast (bread crumbs, salt, pepper, parsley)

Olive oil

1/4 cup of room temperature butter

2 tablespoons of lemon juice & drizzle of lemon juice

Salt to taste

1 teaspoon of Italian seasonings

How to assemble: Mix the butter, lemon juice, salt, and Italian seasonings. Spread on both halves of the sliced ciabatta bread. Place a few slices of the mozzarella cheese on one side of the bread and a few pieces of spinach on the other half. Broil these halves until the cheese is lightly golden brown on the edges. Place the chicken breast on the cheese half and drizzle some olive oil and lemon juice on the chicken. Put some fresh basil leaves on top and close sandwich. Now my favorite part, take a bite and ENJOY!!
