Tips and substitutions:

  • Garlic bread with chicken, strawberries, fresh mozzarella cheese, basil, and a drizzle of balsamic! The best “sandwich” ever!
  • Replace the strawberries with tomatoes.
  • Use Brie cheese instead of mozzarella.
  • Use mango, cilantro, and Jack cheese for a Chicken Mango Sandwich.
  • Leave off the chicken for a vegetarian version of a Chessy Roasted Strawberry Baguette Sandwich.
  • Make your own balsamic glaze, or buy a good quality bottle (we love Delallo’s brand, nice and thick and rich!)
  • Buy 2 bottle of Delall’s Balsamic Glaze – well worth the money!
  • Substitute the chicken for steak – try this Steak Caprese Sandwich with tomatoes.

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.

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

  • 1 loaf baguette bread, cut in half, and then lengthwise cut in half
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 12 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
  • ½ cup balsamic glaze, (we use Delallo brand)
  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken, chopped or shredded
  • 2 cups strawberries, sliced
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ½ cup chopped fresh basil


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place 4 pieces of the baguette on a large baking sheet with the cut side up.
  • 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.)
  • 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.
