Fig and Olive Tapenade

"This is an easy gourmet appetizer. I've brought this to several parties and it is always a hit! I often add some chopped green olives to the olive mixture and a little more balsamic.

Gourmet Chicken Sandwich

Gourmet Chicken Sandwich

"Sauteed chicken breasts topped with a mayonnaise/mustard/rosemary spread and graced by 2 slices of garlic rosemary focaccia bread.

The spread and the chicken can be made in advance, and the chicken can be eaten hot or cold." — by LCLARKE
