Need an easy idea for dinner tonight? We have a winner recipe that is perfect for this time of year. It is also a great one to keep on hand for back-to-school dinners since it is so easy to make and is kid friendly as well.

All up it should take you about 30 minutes to get it on the table.

Open Face Philly Style Chicken Sandwiches
- 1 tbs olive oil

- 1 green pepper, cut into strips
- 2 garlic cloves, minced

Preheat broiler. Heat oil in a large skillet at med/high. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Brown on both sides-about 5 mins. Reduce heat to med/low. Place onions & peppers on top of chicken and sprinkle with garlic & oregano. Season with additional salt and pepper, if desired. Cover and cook for 5 to 8 mins until vegetables are tender and chicken is cooked through. While cooking, place bread slices on baking sheet and spread with a bit of butter. Place bread under broiler & toast for a few mins until just golden brown. Remove. When chicken and veggies are cooked, distribute chicken mixture over bread slices and sprinkle with mozzarella cheese. Place back under broiler until cheese is golden and veggies are browned. Serve with a simple garden salad or fresh fruit for an easy quick dinner!
