4 slices tomato
4 thin slices fontina, gruyere or mozzarella cheese

2 Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a grill pan and cook chicken for about 5 to 6 minutes per side. Drain on paper towel. Set aside and keep warm.

3 Drizzle remaining oil on the zucchini and eggplant. Season with salt and pepper. Cook on the same grill pan for about 30 seconds per side for the zucchini and 1 to 2 minutes per side for the eggplant. Set aside and keep warm.

4 Spread mayonnaise on the insides of the bread. Place 1 piece of chicken, 2 pieces each of zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes and cheese for each piece of bread.
