Chicken Focaccia with Nectarine Thyme Jam

I am obsessed with making small batch jams in the summer.

Even though I could up the ingredient amounts, so my jams would yield enough to be canned.

I prefer having a rotation of homemade spreads during the season in which the fruit & veg was grown.

So much for saving them for winter!

I’ve been attempting to eat my weight in stone fruit now that it is at the market.

Rather than simply snacking on nectarines, I whipped up a sandwich, chicken focaccia with nectarine thyme jam.

The herby jam added sweetness that balanced with the Taleggio and Dijon, and it gave new life to leftover chicken.

A sandwich like this chicken focaccia with nectarine thyme jam makes leftover chicken special because of the easy to make herby sweet spread.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound nectarines (about 4) pitted and roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 2 5×4-inch pieces focaccia halved horizontally
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 6 ounces roasted chicken, shredded
  • 1 handful arugula
  • 1 ounce Taleggio cheese, sliced

Instructions

  1. In a large saucepan, combine the nectarines, sugar, lemon juice and thyme. Bring the mixture to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Cook the mixture, stirring frequently, until it turns into a thick chunky jam, about 20 minutes. Remove the thyme and let the jam cool.
  2. To make the sandwiches, spread the cut sides of the focaccia with jam and mustard. Arrange the chicken on the bottom sides of the focaccia and top with arugula, Taleggio and the remaining focaccia.
