Chicken Panzanella

 

Super summer lunch or light dinner. Chicken Panzenella #recipe

Summer is here and I am looking for light suppers. I am always looking to expand my lunch menu too! This Chicken Panzanella is perfect! Panzanella is basically a salad made with bread! YUM!

I added some grilled chicken, you could use rotisserie chicken also.  Or if you are vegetarian, leave out the chicken and add chick peas, or whatever else your heart desires.
