Great substitute for a NOLA muffaletta. We are BIG Central Grocery fans and have carried the original sandwich home (on our laps--sniff, sniff! what's that smell?) on flights back to Chicago. I oven roasted my own boneless chicken breast (highly seasoned with Italian herbs, salt, pepper, garlic), used a small jar of prepared Chicago style giardinera (instead of the recipe's olive salad), used a thin layer of low fat salami instead of chopping salami, and slices of smoked provolone as well as some basil leaves and baby spinach. Hollowed out a ciabatta loaf. Could only keep the troops at bay for a couple of hours for refrigeration of the assembled sandwich. It was fabulous!
