I loved this! Great way to use up left over chicken too.

I have made this a few times for my partner and he hates vegetables but he will eat this because it is so good !

Very good. All the veggie haters ate the whole thing. Will be serving this again and again.

This was yummy. Used this for some leftover chicken we had. I used white balsamic instead and no feta, and melted provolone on the top. Really hearty sandwich. Great way to get extra veggies in...

Very good. Definitely making this again soon.
