Chicken Caprese Sandwich

Sandwiches are the perfect lunch meal. You get a just about everything you need; bread, meat, and veggies. I recently made some focaccia

and decided that a sandwich for lunch was just what I needed. Inspiration taken from a caprese salad, swapping out basil for spinach for our greens.


  • 2 slices of Sandwich bread of your choosing – I used focaccia
  • 1 Chicken Thigh
  • 1 TSP Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 TBSP Oil, canola/vegetable
  • 1 TSP Balsamic
  • 1 TSP Garlic Powder
  • 1 Tomato, sliced
  • Handful of Spinach
  • 1/4 Cup Mozzarella Cheese
  • Salt + Pepper

Let’s Get Cooking

In a pan, heat the oil. Once the oil is hot, add in the chicken thigh. Season both sides with Red pepper + Garlic + Salt + Pepper and pour over the balsamic. Cook about 9 minutes each side, leaving the chicken alone so the skin gets crispy. Once fully cooked, set aside.

Toast the sandwich bread that you are choosing to use. On the top slice, add on the mozzarella cheese. On the bottom slice place spinach then tomato slices. As the chicken is cooled, slice length wise and place over the tomato. Finish off the sandwich, cut in half, and enjoy!

Always Hungry,
