Today's Lunch: Bruschetta Chicken Sandwiches

Well, we made it half-way through the week. Thank you! I feel like it's hard for me to stay motivated at work this week. Hopefully things will pick up tomorrow. At least my lunch hour was pretty good, mostly because I inhaled two of these babies:

Bruschetta Chicken Sandwiches Serves 2

1 or 1-1/2 tomatoes, diced, drained as much as possible
1/4 green pepper, diced

5-6 slices of deli chicken
2 whole wheat buns or rolls
1-2 tsp
1/4-1/2 tsp basil
1 clove garlic, minced
2tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp olive oil (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl. Toast a bun and spread with garlic butter. Top with one or two pieces of deli-slices chicken breast. I used Natural Selections by Maple Leaf. Eat up.

Another option is to throw it on a wrap & add some feta:

I love bruschetta. So much so that I try to order it as an appetizer at almost any restaurant I visit. My absolute favorite version, which no one has been able to top, is at Jack Astors. They top theirs with this garlic aoli (fancy mayo stuff) and balsamic reduction that takes it over the top. I strongly recommend that you try it the next time you're there. You will not be disappointed!
