Day 23: Roast Chicken Sandwich with Green Apple and Balsamic Glaze

Today's recipe is going to use yesterday's balsamic glaze.  It is a delicious sandwich that is a little different than your regular deli variety. The crisp, tart apple slices paired with tender, savoury roast chicken smothered in sweet, tangy balsamic glaze; mmm...

4 nice bakery buns or focaccia bread
4 whole chicken breasts, flattened to 1/2" thickness with a kitchen mallet
2 large green apples, cored and cut into 1/8" slices (rub each slice with a generous amount of lemon juice to prevent browning)
4 romaine leaves
2 T dry thyme leaves
salt and pepper
1/4 cup balsamic glaze

1) Season chicken breasts with thyme, salt and pepper.
2)  Roast chicken breasts in the oven for approximately 25-30 minutes at 425F or until chicken is cooked through.
3) Cut buns in half and spread each half with a bit of the balsamic glaze.
4) Place roasted chicken breasts on top of half of the buns and top with more balsamic glaze.
5) Arrange 2-3 slices of apple on top of chicken and add a bit of romaine lettuce.
6) Top the sandwich with the remaining bun halves and serve.
