Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spread brown mustard onto the chicken breasts to coat, and place them in a baking dish. Bake for about 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until cooked through.

  • Meanwhile, bring 1/2 inch of water to a boil in a small saucepan with a lid. Add the broccoli, and cook for 7 minutes, or until tender but still bright green. Drain, and set aside.

  • Shred or cube the chicken, and place onto the bottom half of the focaccia bread. Spread the broccoli over the chicken, and top with mozzarella cheese.

  • Bake this part of the sandwich (without the top) for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Place the top of the bread over the filling, and bake for another 5 minutes to heat through. Cut into small squares to serve.

This recipe actually was a bit bland for our taste. We didnt' have the correct bread though. Does that make the difference? Any suggestions? Read More

The way this is written I would give it three and 1/2 stars but could go four with my version. I had pre-cooked shredded chicken that I mixed some honey mustard into making it a little saucy. I put a little salt and pepper on top of the broccoli. I think the way it is written it would be very bland. I will make this again experimenting with different cheeses as well. Read More

The recipe was a tad bland with the foccacia bread. I think adding a little more sauce and doing with out the foccacia would make it excellent. Maybe pita bread instead? Read More

It was a tad bland but we just added a bit of garlic salt on top and it was good. Not the most fantastic dish in the world but it is quick and easy. Will make again. Read More

I didn't have that type of bread so I made it on French bread. I also put mayo on the bread before and used left over rotisserie chicken as the chicken. Yum. Read More

based on the reviews mentioning blandness I opted to pan fry the chicken with the mustard. I added a good does of salt and pepper. I made homemade focaccia- garlic Rosemary. And assembled as stated but added a bit too f Dijon to the bottom slice. The sandwich was so dry and still bland. Read More
