Wash and scrub the produce prior to cutting.

Use a hot grill and oil the grates before cooking the chicken breast.

Grill the patty to a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees for a minimum of 15 seconds to ensure chicken is cooked thoroughly and to maximize flavor and juiciness.

Spread the balsamic cream on the bottom bun and the pesto aioli on the top bun. Then layer the ingredients on in the following order from the bottom bun up: shredded romaine, grilled chicken breast with the melted provolone cheese, tomato bruschetta salsa and the top bun.
