Chicken Ciabatta

Chowing Down at the Stillery

Ever finish the front nine, and skip the Snack Bar because you’re in a big hurry to get through the round ASAP? Well, former Chef Efren once churned out his savory Chicken Ciabatta in about two minutes!  (Now, the folks at Everybody’s Snack Bar & Pizza, and the Stillery, are here to care for you.) So take off that edge, and you might even play better.

You can try this at home, but might I suggest you let them do it for you? Here’s Efren’s recipe….


  • 4 thin chicken cutlets (about 1 lb.)
  • 1/4 cup Italian dressing
  • 1 jar (210 mL) roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread (about 16 in.), halved lengthwise
  • 2 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/4 teaspoon (or more) coarse kosher salt
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


  1. Grill chicken, brushing frequently with Dressing, 15 minutes or until chicken is thoroughly cooked.
  2. Toast chiabatta roll.
  3. Top with chicken and roasted pepper.
  4. Meanwhile, mash garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt in small bowl until paste forms. Whisk in mayonnaise, olive oil, and lemon juice.
  5. Put it all together and top with sauce.
  6. Season to taste with coarse salt and pepper
  7. To serve, cut into 2 pieces
