Grilled Chicken and Boursin Sandwich

Hearty, yet healthy.

Watermelon is a great alternative to a tomato. A juicy slice completes the great flavor combination.

  • 1 9 or 10 inch round herbed focaccia
  • 5 ounces Boursin cheese
  • 3 grilled skinless boneless chicken breast halves, sliced
  • 4 thin slices seedless watermelon
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 3 ounces baby arugula

Split the focaccia through the center as for a sandwich and spread the Boursin over the cut sides of the bread. Arrange the chicken over the Boursin on the bottom piece of bread. Sprinkle the sesame seeds over the watermelon and grill it quickly over hot coals just to warm. Arrange in an even layer over the chicken and top the watermelon with the arrugula. Place the top of the bread, Boursin side down, over the arrugula. Cut sandwich into halves or quarters.


Makes 2-3 servings.
