Chicken and Avocado Caprese Open Faced Sandwich

Chicken and Avocado Caprese Open Faced Sandwich

Kudos to my sister who inspired me to make this sandwich.  I used the leftover Balsamic, Garlic, and Basil Chicken along with fresh avocado, tomatoes, basil, and mozzarella to make this delicious open-faced sandwich.  My kids had friends who were spending the night and they all seemed to enjoy it and my husband and I really, REALLY loved it.  The tender chicken was delicious on top of the roasted garlic bread and I loved the texture the soft avocado gave to this sandwich.  Of course, the tomato, basil, and mozzarella topped this amazing open-faced sandwich off perfectly.  I highly recommend you try this recipe!  Thanks for the inspiration, Dana!!!

Can you tell which one is for my daughter who doesn’t care for cheese?

Place back into the oven and cook, watching carefully, until the cheese melts.  Remove from the oven and sprinkle the top with chopped basil before serving.  Enjoy.

  1. kudos to your sister indeed–this sounds fabulous! i’ve often thought that caprese appetizers and salads would greatly benefit by the addition of some avocado. 🙂

  2. This is such a great idea. We are always looking for new leftover ideas and this is one we will add to our rotation! I bet I could even make it on my grill! Thanks for the delicious idea.

  3. I know I always say this, but you make the best recipes with your leftovers, Pam! What a perfect way to use the chicken. You are so creative!

  4. I do these kinds of melts when I don’t want to cook.
    Although you did them better than I by adding in the chicken.
    I’ve been so lazy this summer in terms of baking.
    I hope it changes lol

  5. I just love the look of the melted cheese on top. It would be totally ruined by another slice of bread, this is perfect!

  6. This was soo good! My husband loved it and said he would order this at a restrauant. It’s that good.
