Ingredient List
For the melt:
  • Four large slices of sourdough bread
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 4 large tomato slices
  • 8 fresh basil leaves (more or less depending on size)
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Balsamic glaze
To make the sandwich
  • Spread half of the butter on two slices of bread and place the bread butter-side-down on a cutting board.

  • On each of the two slices, layer ¼ cup shredded mozzarella, ½ cup diced chicken, 4 basil leaves, 2 tomato slices and the remaining cheese.  

  • Drizzle the balsamic glaze on top and then place the other sourdough slices on top.  Spread the remaining butter over the top slices of bread.

  • Add the sandwiches to a griddle on low-medium heat.  Let cook until the bottom slice of bread is a light golden brown.  

  • Flip the sandwich and continue cooking until it’s got good color and the cheese is melty.

  • Serve warm.
