chicken sandwich

after i handed in my layout assignment, we celebrated by buying chicken and goat's cheese. so i made sandwiches!

chicken, brie, and pear sandwiches with balsamic onions

1 onion, sliced
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
2 ciabatta buns, halved
1-2 boneless/skinless chicken breasts, cooked and sliced
1 pear, thinly sliced
brie cheese, sliced
2-3 garlic cloves, finely chopped

cook chicken breast by frying it in a pan or grilling it. then slice the onion and fry it in butter or oil on a frying pan. when onions are translucent add balsamic vinegar.
arrange garlic, chicken, pears, onions, and cheese on sandwich. grill on a panini grill or toast in a toaster oven until cheese melts. serve with salad:

apple grape salad with balsamic onions:

1-2 cups of baby spinach/mixed greens
1 apple, thinly sliced don't remove the skin its good for you!
1 cup grapes, stems removed and sliced in half
1/2 cup balsamic onions from above sandwich.
1/4 cup dried cranberries
