Step 1

Heat a grill or grill to high. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and grill until cooked through. Remove from grill and slice into strips about 1" wide. Place in a shallow dish and drizzle with about 2 - 3 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Toss to cover.

Step 2

For each sandwich, open one of the rolls and top with a couple of the chicken tenders. Layer the tomato, mozzarella, and basil leaves on top. Drizzle the top roll with a little more balsamic vinegar and olive oil and then place on top of the sandwich. Slice in half and serve.


If on a tight budget, sliced mozzarella can be substituted for fresh mozzarella balls.
