Italian Chicken Baguette
Servings: 4 Prep 5 mins Grill 4 mins


  • 4 thin sliced chicken breast cutlets (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1/2 cup prepared reduced-calorie balsamic vinaigrette and marinade
  • 1 12 ounce baguette (about 12 ounces)
  • 8 slices reduced-fat provolone cheese (about 1/4 pound total)
  • 4 leaves bibb or green leaf lettuce
  • 1 12 ounce jar roasted red peppers, drained

Make It

1. Heat gas grill to high or prepare charcoal grill with hot coals or heat broiler.

2. Place cutlets in a resealable plastic bag. Add 1/4 cup of the balsamic vinaigrette and let marinate at room temperature for 10 minutes.

3. Trim ends from baguette. Slice into 4 equal pieces, and cut pieces horizontally in half, leaving one end attached to make a bun. Slightly hollow out baguette buns. Spread 1 tablespoon of the remaining vinaigrette inside each bun.

4. Divide the roasted red peppers evenly among the 4 buns.

5. Grill or broil marinated chicken for 2 minutes. Flip over cutlets, and top each with 1/4 of the cheese (about 2 thin slices). Grill or broil an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until cooked through and cheese is melted.

6. Transfer cutlets to buns and top with the lettuce leaves. Serve with pickles, if desired. Makes 4 servings.
