Big Chicken Sandwich

So, what do you do when you've got a loaf of bread that looks like a really big bagel?  And you've got some leftover beer can chicken? 

You make a really big chicken salad sandwich.

First, you pick all the chicken off the bones and chop it up, and make your favorite chicken salad recipe.  I made mine with scallions, mayo, a little celery, salt and pepper. 

Next, I sliced my bread in half and drizzled it with a healthy amount of olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

Then a generous layer of red leaf lettuce…

and then the chicken salad.  Pile it up!

Now, on the top side of the bread, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic again, and then smear it with some gorgonzola dolce…

The gorgonzola dolce adds a sharp bite, but there's also a sweetness to it that works nicely with the balsamic vinegar.

Now put the sandwich together…

And start slicing it up.

Depending on appetites, this sandwich would feed anywhere from 2 to 6 people.  More if you're having something else along with it.

Anyway, that's what we did with the bagel-like couronne. 

In case you were wondering.
