Grilled Cheese Sandwich with Chicken

Grilled cheese sandwiches remind me of my Mother. She always came up with the best grilled cheese sandwiches, packed with flavor and loaded with goodies underneath a blanket of melted cheese. She used spices and herbs, such as turmeric, oregano, basil, coriander, cumin, and marjoram or anything that she could find in her spice rack. When it came to toppings, she used chicken, fish, meat, and vegetables, anything she could find in the fridge. In Jamaica, we have bread that is quite dense in texture which we call “hardo bread”. When she makes her grilled cheese sandwich with a nice thick slice of “hardo bread”, with toppings, loaded with cheese and spices…you are set!
A crisp French baguette is also a the perfect canvas to build on.

This is what you will need:

½ loaf French bread
10 -12 small black olives, pitted and sliced
¼ red onion, finely sliced
4 anchovy filets
1 breast of chicken, grilled and sliced
2 tablespoons Basil Pesto
¼ cup four cheese Mexican blend (a blend of Monterey Jack, Cheddar, Asadero and Quesadilla cheeses)
1/8 teaspoon of black pepper
1/8 teaspoon of half sharp paprika
¼ teaspoon oregano
¼ teaspoon marjoram
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon coriander
pinch of red pepper flakes
Baguette Layered with Basil Pesto, Grilled Chicken, Red Onions, Anchovies and Olives
Cut half of a French baguette in half, lengthwise. Spread each side with 1 tablespoon of Basil Pesto. Then layer the baguette halves with slices of grilled chicken breast, ¼ of a red onion finely sliced, 4 anchovy filets, slices of black olives. 
Baguettes Topped Chicken, Vegetables and Four Cheese Mexican Blend
Top with ¼ cup of the four cheese blend and sprinkle with the spices.

Broil on high for 2½ to 3 minutes on the top shelf. Take out of the oven and enjoy. This serves 4. Serve with a tossed salad and a glass of white wine. VoilĂ . This is a wonderful lunch idea or the perfect light supper. 
Ready to be Enjoyed
A cup of soup will make it even more substantial. Try the sandwich with the Chilled Creamy Asparagus Soup with Parsley Cream or Creamy Cauliflower Soup with Caramelized Onions.
