  • For the sandwich
  • 4 thick slices of bread
  • 1 chicken breast half butterflied
  • 4-6 slices of tomato
  • 1 cup spinach leaves
  • 8-10 basil leaves
  • For the sauce
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons grape syrup or honey
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven at 350°F (175°C)
  2. Butterfly the chicken breast and pound it with a millet or a heavy object to even the surface. You want it to be approximately half an inch thick.
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook it in a skillet in medium/high heat with a tablespoon of olive oil. Wait until one side has browned well (about 5-6 minutes) and then flip it. Cook the other side the same way.
  4. Put it in the oven to bake for additional 10 minutes and let it rest in a cutting board. Divide in two equal pieces.
  5. Lay some spinach leaves on one slice of bread. Put one piece of chicken on top and drizzle with some sauce.
  6. Lay some tomato slices on top, some basil leaves and drizzle again with some sauce.
  7. Top with another slice of bread.
  8. Repeat for the second sandwich.
  9. Eat.
