Always a fan favorite, this sandwich recipe is easy to make and even easier to eat! Take a peek at the ingredients and directions below.

Ingredients:

  • 4 chicken cutlets, 1/4-inch thick for 3/4 to 1 pound total
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 4 slices Black Forest ham
  • 8 slices smoked mozzarella
  • 1 baguette
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 bunch arugula

Directions:

  1. Preheat the broiler in your oven.
  2. Line a baking sheet with foil and evenly space the chicken cutlets in the center. Brush the chicken with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Broil, rotating the baking sheet as needed so the chicken cooks evenly, until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes. Flip the chicken and continue to broil until cooked through, 2 to 3 more minutes.
  4. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and top each piece of chicken with 1 slice ham and 2 slices mozzarella. Broil until the cheese melts, 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and drizzle with olive oil.
  5. Meanwhile, cut the baguette crosswise into 4 equal pieces, then split open. Spread the bottom halves with butter and the top halves with mustard.
  6. Toss the arugula with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  7. Sandwich the chicken and watercress between the baguette halves.
