    1. 1
      Heat grill to HIGH (450 degrees to 550 degrees). Note: I used a stove top grill pan to prepare the chicken.
    2. 2
      Set aside 4 large basil leaves.
    3. 3
      Combine the mayonnaise, remaining basil, garlic, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper in a mini-food processor. Process until smooth.
    4. 4
      If using chicken breasts, cut each breast in half. Place each chicken breast (or thigh) between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a meat mallet until the pieces are 1/4-inch thick.
    5. 5
      Grill chicken, basting each side with the basil-mayonnaise mixture, turning the the chicken pieces as needed until they are cooked through and well browned, approximately 8 minutes.
    6. 6
      Brush one side of bread with a little bit of the basil-mayonnaise mixture; grill bread approximately 1 minute on both sides.
    7. 7
      Place a chicken breast on the basil-mayonnaise side of the bread. Top each sandwich with a tomato slice and basil leaf.
    8. 8
      Serve the remaining basil-mayonnaise on the side.
    9. 9
      Serving suggestion: fresh corn on the cob and a simple mixed fruit salad (blueberries, strawberries, blackberries and watermelon.).
