  • 1
    To flatten each chicken breast half, place, boned side up, between 2 pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Working from center, gently pound chicken with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
  • 2
    Place chicken in shallow nonmetal dish or resealable food storage plastic bag. Add Italian salad dressing; turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.
  • 3
    Heat grill. When ready to grill, place chicken on gas grill over medium heat or on charcoal grill 4 to 6 inches from medium coals. Cook 8 to 10 minutes or until fork-tender and juices run clear, turning once. Toast focaccia, cut sides down, during last 3 to 4 minutes of cooking time.
  • 4
    In large bowl, combine lettuce, olives and Caesar salad dressing; toss to coat. Arrange cooked chicken on bottom half of toasted focaccia. Top with lettuce mixture, tomato slices and top half of focaccia. Cut into wedges to serve.

Expert Tips

  • To broil chicken, place on broiler pan; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat using times above as a guide, turning once. Place focaccia on broiler pan, cut sides up, during last 3 to 4 minutes of cooking time.
  • If your focaccia measures less than 10 inches across, use less chicken and salad filling so the sandwiches remain easy to eat.
  • To reduce the fat in each sandwich by about 5 grams, substitute light Caesar salad dressing for regular dressing.
  • To save the time of washing and trimming the romaine, purchase romaine salad mixture or washed romaine hearts from the produce section of the grocery store.
  • To easily cut and handle the focaccia wedges, evenly space six 6-inch skewers around the loaf, two inches from the edge. Cut between the skewers, then arrange the wedges on a platter or on plates. Remove the skewers before serving the wedges.
