One day, at the dinner table, my husband turned to me to say: “I could eat chicken every day.” What he really meant was that any recipe with chicken is a good recipe in his book. After hearing this, I was determined to impress and spoil him with my favorite dishes with chicken as the main ingredient. Since I do more elaborate cooking on the weekends, during the week I try to stick with fast, wholesome recipes whenever possible. My hubby especially loves chicken breasts, French bread, spinach and tomatoes. So I came up with a way to bring together these four nourishing ingredients, creating this grilled chicken and spinach baguette.” A riquísimo sandwich, just looking at it makes my mouth water. The best part? It only took 20 minutes to put together! Our schedules are packed and our daily to-do lists, long. This easy recipe uses a few simple ingredients so that you can whip up a light and nutritious lunch, snack or dinner in a matter of minutes. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 medium, boneless chicken breasts, skinless
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 pitted, black olives, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (to sauté spinach)
  • 1 package frozen chopped spinach
  • 1 can anchovy fillets (drained)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 large loaf French bread (baguette)
  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste

Directions

  • 1
    Fillet the chicken breasts, salt and pepper to taste, and cook on the grill or in a grill pan for approximately 5 minutes on each side.
  • 2
    While the chicken is cooking, slice the tomatoes and olives and set aside.
  • 3
    In a medium-sized frying pan, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the chopped spinach.
  • 4
    Drain the can of anchovies and separate the individual fillets.
  • 5
    Crush the clove of garlic and add 1/4 cup of olive oil, mix well.
  • 6
    Slice open the loaf of French bread lengthwise, and brush both sides of the roll with the oil and crushed garlic mix, preferably using a silicone pastry brush.
  • 7
    Once the chicken fillets are ready, arrange on the bread, top with the sautéed spinach, a row of sliced tomatoes, the individual anchovy fillets and sliced black olives.
  • 8
    Season with freshly ground black pepper, to taste. ¡Buen provecho!

  • When working with raw poultry, whenever possible use gloves and thoroughly disinfect all surfaces where chicken was prepared.
  • If you don’t plan on serving the sandwiches right away, wrap them in aluminum foil. Enjoy fresh, versus leftover, for the best flavor.
