Ingredients

    Olive Spread: 

    • 1/2 cup roasted red peppers
    • 1-1/2 cups bottled pickled vegetables, drained
    • 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, drained
    • 1/2 cup pimento-stuffed green olives, drained
    • 1/2 cup artichoke hearts, drained
    • 2 tablespoons capers
    • 2 tablespoons parsley
    • 1 clove garlic
    • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
    • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil

    Sandwiches: 

    • 4 chicken breast halves, boneless and skinless
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
    • 4 pieces French sourdough bread, about 6 inches each, sliced lengthwise
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 cups Olive Spread
    • 4 slices Swiss cheese
    • 4 slices provolone cheese

    Directions

  • Combine all Olive Spread ingredients in a food processor. Chop by pulsing until consistency of cole slaw.
  • Marinate for at least 30 minutes at room temperature.
  • Prepare gas or charcoal grill, or preheat broiler. Place chicken breast halves between 2 pieces of waxed paper; pound gently to 1/4-inch thickness.
  • Brush each side of chicken with vegetable oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill or broil for 2 to 3 minutes per side, until cooked throughout.
  • Assemble sandwich by opening bread and drizzling each half with olive oil.
  • Spread 1/2 cup Olive Spread on bottom of each sandwich; top with grilled chicken, 1 slice of Swiss cheese and 1 slice of provolone cheese. This recipe originally aired in the January 2007 issue of Capper's Farmer.
