Ingredients

  • 1 loaf of a rustic Italian bread such as Como or Pugliese
  • 2 tablespoons Compliments Butter, melted
  • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
  • 3/4 pound cooked chicken, thinly sliced
  • 1 firm-ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and cut into 12 equal wedges
  • 1 1/4 cups Compliments Medium Shredded Cheddar

Method

  1. Preheat oven broiler to high. 
  2. Place bread on a cutting board. Cut about 11/2 inches off each end of the loaf; save for another use.
  3. Cut remaining loaf in half crosswise. Cut each half horizontally in half again to make 4 equal pieces.
  4. Place bread, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. 
  5. Mix together butter and garlic; brush evenly over cut sides of bread. 
  6. Broil bread 4 inches from heat just until it is very lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven.
  8. Top each piece of bread with equal amounts of chicken and then avocado slices. Sprinkle each equally with cheese.
  9. Return to oven and broil until sandwiches are hot and cheese is browned and bubbling, 3-4 minutes. Watch carefully to avoid burning.
