Chicken and Pear Sandwich

If you like pears, you will like this simple and quick meal with leftovers chicken. You can use either red or green pears, but I prefer Bartlett pear.
1 pear, washed and thinly sliced
Baguette bread, toasted
A handful of arugula greens
5-6 Tbsp. balsamic vinaigrette (store bought)
Cooked or roasted chicken breast meat, sliced
1. In a bowl, mix arugula greens with half of the vinaigrette dressing. Season to taste and toss to mix. Split baguette lengthwise and toast bread with flat side down for about 4-5 minutes. Remove and drizzle both sides with vinaigrette dressing.
2. Layer greens on bottom half of baguette, followed with chicken and pear slices over chicken. Drizzle with remaining dressing and cover top with the other half of baguette. If using a long baguette bread, cut into 4 sandwiches. Serve immediately.
