Love at First Bite: The Focaccia Sandwich

In my earlier years, we lived by a little sandwich shop that we absolutely loved. I was always so excited to try new things, so when I discovered the focaccia sandwich, it was love at first bite– the light and chewy, herb-infused focaccia with delightful sandwich fillings in every bite. This chicken Florentine focaccia sandwich is reminiscent of that old sandwich shop, and I think you’ll love it just as much as I did.

Easy to Make Focaccia Sandwiches

For the focaccia, either buy focaccia loaves at your local bakery or use a focaccia bread mix from The Prepared Pantry. Mixes are easy and you can choose from four varieties.

The best part? You don’t even need to know how to bake bread to make the focaccia for these easy sandwiches. All you have to do is combine the ingredients from the mix, lay it out like a pizza, and throw it into the oven. You’ll have delicious focaccia for your yummy sandwiches in no time.

If you want more variation on these tasty sandwiches besides varying the bread mix, you can try it with chicken salad instead.
