Open-Faced Mediterranean Grilled Chicken Sandwiches

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 open-faced sandwich)


  • 4 none (4-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sun-dried tomato dressing (such as Kraft), divided
  • none Olive oil-flavored cooking spray
  • 4 none slices reduced-fat provolone cheese (such as Sargento Light Deli Style)
  • 4 none (1 1/2-ounce) slices Italian or French bread
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded romaine lettuce
  • 2 none plum tomatoes, thinly sliced
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


Place each chicken breast half between 2 sheets of heavy-duty plastic wrap; flatten to 1/2-inch thickness, using a meat mallet or rolling pin. Combine chicken breast halves and 1/2 cup dressing in a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag; seal bag securely, and marinate in refrigerator at least 8 hours.

Prepare grill.

Remove chicken from marinade, discarding marinade. Place chicken on grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill, covered, 4 minutes on each side or until done. Top with cheese, and grill 1 minute or until cheese melts. Coat bread with cooking spray; grill, covered, 1 minute on each side or until toasted.

Toss lettuce with 1 tablespoon dressing. Top bread slices evenly with lettuce and tomato. Place a chicken breast over each. Sprinkle with basil and pepper. Serve immediately.
