    tips & techniques
    Prepare the ingredients
    1 Prepare the ingredients

    Preheat your grill to maintain a temperature of 450-500°F. Carefully oil the grill grates. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the baguette; drizzle both sides with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Peel 1 clove of garlic; using a zester or the small side of a box grater, finely grate into a paste. Halve the tomatoes; place in a bowl and add half the vinegar. Season with salt and pepper; stir to coat. Halve the cucumbers lengthwise; thinly slice crosswise. Roughly chop the olives.

    2 Grill the chicken & toast the baguette

    Pat the chicken dry with paper towels; drizzle with olive oil and season on both sides with salt, pepper, and enough of the Italian seasoning to coat (you may have extra). Grill the seasoned chicken 7 to 8 minutes per side, or until browned and cooked through.* Add the seasoned baguette to the grill and toast 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until lightly charred. Transfer to a cutting board.

    *The USDA recommends a minimum safe cooking temperature of 165°F for chicken.
