Grilled Chicken Ciabatta Sandwiches - Recipe

When a sandwich recipe features tender grilled chicken, marinated mozzarella cheese, fresh spinach leaves, and thinly sliced tomato, as this one does, it promises to be delicious. When the ingredients are placed on a ciabatta loaf spread with a fresh basil and lemon mayonnaise, then served hot off the grill, it becomes hard to beat.

  • Mayo sauce: Mix together mayonnaise, lemon zest and basil. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • Preheat grill to medium.
  • Season chicken with lemon pepper.
  • Place on grill and grill 5 minutes each side, just until no longer pink in the middle.
  • Remove from grill, allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, cut bread in half horizontally and through middle, so you have 4 halves.
  • Spread each half with mayo mixture.
  • On the 2 bottom halves layer marinated mozzarella slices, then chicken, which has been sliced thin, spinach, tomato and top with slices of mozzarella.
  • Place top half of bread on each sandwich.
  • Wrap each sandwich in foil, place on grill.
