Chicken Muffaletta Sandwiches

It has been quite a long time since I wrote anything in this blog. Sorry for my absence. I made a new recipe at the Senior Center this month and I thought I would share it with you. It was a huge hit! I hope you enjoy it as much as the seniors.

Chicken Muffaletta Sandwiches

4 boneless skinless chicken breast
salt and pepper
1 can of black olives
1 jar of green olives with pimentos
2 tbs chopped fresh parsley
Splash of Olive Oil
Splash of Balsamic Vinegar
2 minced garlic cloves
4-8 sandwich rolls (depending upon how big your sandwiches will be)

Heat a pan on medium high until hot. Season chicken breast with salt and pepper. Sear chicken in hot pan for 5 minutes each side. Put chicken in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 20 minutes or until chicken is done.

Meanwhile, chop black and green olives and put into a bowl with parsley, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and minced garlic. Set aside until ready to assemble the sandwiches.

To assemble, slice chicken into thin strips and put into rolls. Top the chicken with the olive salad.

If you are not enjoying the sandwiches right away, wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap and refrigerate. The flavors will blend and will be fabulous when you are ready to eat or you can enjoy these sandwiches hot.

I hope you enjoy them!
