California Chicken

READY IN: 40mins

This is similar to a sandwich made at my moms old restaurant. It is good as a sandwich or on its own with a salad and crusty bread...

Totally wonderful in everyway! I followed this pretty much the way it was listed, except for these little changes, I used larger grape tomatoes ~ as I didn't have larger ones, and also, after browning the chicken, I just put in the oven to bake for 15 minutes, added cheese, and tomatoes, baked for 5 more minutes, and topped with cheese for another 1 minute. Came out perfectly! Served atop a nice bed of fresh greens, and this was delish! Thanks so much! Will make lots!
