Roasted Strawberry Chicken Sandwich

If you want to enjoy your guests, slow down, relax, and take time to enjoy the process. One way, for me, is to watch the look on your guests’ faces when they take a bite of something really good!

I had a few friends over for lunch last week and I made a delicious, Roasted Strawberry Chicken Sandwich, which in reality, is one of my favorite sandwiches.

Let me just say, the look on their faces when they took a bite of this sandwich was priceless.


But more about friendships. Some may be reluctant to invite friends over for lunch. For me, sitting down and enjoying a meal with a friend is nourishment and pleasurable. It fills me up inside–whether eating in a home or even out on a lunch date–to sit and listen to my friends talk about their lives. I don’t feel like my house has to be perfect, and I really just focus on an easy meal, and a place where we can sit and talk.

I want to be involved, know more about their struggles, ask questions about their lives, find out how their kids are doing, and then ask how to pray for them. I feel blessed in life with some pretty deep long-lasting friendships. It takes being a friend to have lots of friends.

The food.

Today’s sandwich recipe so easy to make! Take one baguette and cut in half, and then again lengthwise. You’ll have 4 long pieces of bread.

Combine butter and garlic and spread evenly over the bread.

Layer pieces of rotisserie chicken on top of the garlic butter, topping with thick slices of fresh mozzarella cheese.

Bake in the oven.

Top with strawberries, fresh chopped basil, and drizzle with Balsamic Glaze (I use Delallo brand).

First bite.

Did I mention, watch your guests’ faces when they take their first bite?


Have you thought about putting strawberries on a sandwich?

My recipe is inspired by Maria, over at Two Peas and Their Pod, who made a similar recipe with tomatoes.

Roasted Strawberry Chicken Sandwich

Garlic bread with chicken, strawberries, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic! The best “sandwich” ever! Replace the strawberries with tomatoes.


  • 1 loaf baguette bread, cut in half, and then lengthwise cut in half
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • 1/2 cup balsamic glaze
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, chopped
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh basil


  • 1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place 4 pieces of the baguette on a large baking sheet with the cut side up.
  • 2. In a small bowl, combine butter and garlic and spread evenly on bread halves. Place the chopped chicken, and then mozzarella cheese slices on top of the bread. Bake the bread for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
  • 3. At the same time, slice the strawberries and lightly drizzle with balsamic glaze (saving most of the glaze for the final drizzle), putting in the oven and roasting for 3-5 minutes. (Optional, or you can serve the strawberries fresh without roasting.)
  • 4. Remove the bread and strawberries from oven. Top the bread with strawberry slices. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the fresh basil and drizzle with balsamic glaze.
