Recipe Notes

PRO TIP: because you are using fresh mozzarella it needs a little more time than traditional mozzarella to melt so cook your sandwich on med-high heat, not high, or your bread will be done before your cheese it heated through. 

PRO TIP: You can grab already cooked grilled chicken strips in the deli section or the freezer section and use them for this hot sandwich.
