  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large nonstick skillet; cook and stir chicken breast and onion until heated through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate.
  2. Wipe out skillet with a paper towel. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil until bubbling. Add 2 bread slices; sprinkle half of the fontina cheese on top. Cover cheese with half of the chicken and onion. Cook until bread is toasted and cheese is melted, 1 to 2 minutes.
  3. Layer pear slices over chicken and onion; press bread slices together to make a sandwich. Repeat with remaining oil, bread slices, fontina cheese, chicken, onion, and pear slices to make second sandwich.

Other than "grilling" the sandwiches in butter and not measuring, made these following the recipe. They were FABULOUS! Hubby LOVED them!!
