Focaccia Chicken Sandwiches with Lemon Scented Ricotta

Hello! Wow it has been quite a while! Have you heard about the heat wave in Texas? Its been over 100 degrees for 20 days strait, with no sign of letting up. So what happens around our house when its hot outside?

Something nasty like this!
A non-cooking disease has plagued my house, it hasn't been pretty. But I am on the mend. Today I made these yummy grilled chicken sandwiches.
I was a huge fan of the lemon scented ricotta.

Focaccia Chicken Sandwiches with Lemon Scented Ricotta
1 loaf focaccia bread
15 oz ricotta cheese (I used low-fat and it worked great)
2 zucchini's (grated)
2 teaspoons salt
1 large slicing tomatoe
Zest of 1 lemon
1 teaspoon garlic (minced)
salt and pepper to taste
3 chicken breasts (grilled)

First, grate your zucchinis and combine with 2 teaspoons salt. Let sit for several minutes.

Meanwhile, combine your ricotta cheese, lemon zest, garlic and salt and pepper to taste.

Drain your zucchinis. You don't want any extra water in them, so squeeze hard! Combine with ricotta mixture.

Next get your loaf of focaccia. If you aren't familiar with it, this is what it looks like

Cut your loaf in half horizontally, then cut into three slices so that you have six pieces. Drizzle them with olive oil, and put under the broiler until the brown up a little bit.

Next spread your ricotta mixture on your bread and put under the broiler for just a minute until the ricotta gets warm and bubbles a little. Add your piece of grilled chicken and top with sliced tomatoes.
