    Tried this today & made a few changes. Because the chicken is bland, sprinkle lightly, after placing it on the bread, with Lawry's seasoned Salt - 25% less sodium. Added a 4oz. can of sliced mushrooms, well drained; fresh tomatoes, skins removed & diced small & drained well; use than a 1/2 cup diced GREEN pepper instead of red pepper for another color; another layer add on top, the shredded mozzarella cheese, which then holds all of the toppings in place with the melted cheese, very helpful & then lightly sprinkled with dry Italian Seasonings or dried parsley flakes,, for more color, than bake. I liked it a lot but pickey husband did not like the chicken & would rather have had ham, or some other kind of meat.

    My husband and I love this recipe. The only change I make is I use tomatoes instead of the sweet red peppers.

    My husband and I love this recipe. We have made it many times. We add extra veggies and instead of canned chicken we use ready-to-eat grilled chicken strips that we shred. Great recipe !!

    This recipe rocks! As casum stated, it is very easy to make and the flavor is extremely yummy! Now that football season is here, it will be great to make for Sunday afternoon football gatherings! To cut back on the fat, I used reduced fat cheddar and Smart Balance 50/50 Butter Blend. This recipe is a definite keeper!
