Barefoot Bloggers - Caesar Club Sandwich


Karen of Shortbread selected this Ina Garten recipe for Barefoot Bloggers, and initially it gave me flashbacks to my ciabatta fail last summer. So I resolved to make focaccia to serve this sandwich on so as to avoid another ciabatta disappointment.

In making the focaccia, I realized that the process for making ciabatta is remarkably similar, and it gave me the confidence to try ciabatta again. And I did, and told the story here. Conquering this delicious loaf was so satisfying.

It also put me behind on making this sandwich, but it was worth waiting for! I pan sauteed my chicken breasts and finished them in the oven, letting them sit for 10 minutes before slicing. The dressing was a snap to make in the food processor, and we liked it so much that I drizzled a little extra on the arugula.

It was soooo yummy! I'll be making this one again...and you should to. You can find the recipe here.

I think it's awesome that you gave the ciabatta another try. I made some for my sandwich too, and it gets better every time.
It was perfect for this delicious sandwich that turned out even better than I expected! I loved the dressing, too.
