I developed this recipe while trying to creatively use up left-overs. The result was better than the original meals! This can be served as a main course (serves 4) or cut into strips as a great appetizer or snack (serves 8).
Slice Italian bread horizontally. Mix oil and garlic powder together and brush on cut sides of bread (both top and bottom). Sprinkle romano cheese and pepper evenly over both halves. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10-12 minutes, until cheese starts to get slightly golden brown. Set aside.
In a saucepan, combine marinara, onion, olives, and wine if desired. Cook on medium heat for 10 minutes until onions are soft. Add chicken and simmer on low 10-15 minutes.
Drain the peppers and place in an even layer over the top of the Garlic Bread halves. Divide chicken mixture and spread evenly over both halves of bread. Top each half with 1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese.
Return to the oven and let cheese melt. If you like your cheese browned (I do!)set it under the broiler, keeping a close eye on it until it is cooked to desires brownness.
