  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 6 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon dill weed, divided
  • 8 slices French bread (1/2 inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 lettuce leaves
  • 8 slices tomato


  1. Flatten chicken to 1/4-in. thickness; set aside. In a large skillet, saute garlic and 1/4 teaspoon dill in 3 tablespoons butter for 1 minute. Add chicken; cook over medium heat until juices run clear, 3-4 minutes on each side. Remove and keep warm.
  2. Spread both sides of bread with remaining butter. In a large skillet or griddle, grill bread on both sides until golden brown.
  3. Meanwhile in a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, lemon juice and remaining 1/2 teaspoon dill; spread on 1 side of grilled bread. Place lettuce, chicken and tomato on 4 slices of bread; top with remaining bread.
