1 green onion, chopped
4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
2 tablespoons balsamic vinaigrette
Pepper, to taste

4 medium slices crusty Italian bread
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
Basil leaves for garnish
Preparation Time: Approximately 10 minutes (not including marinating time)

Preheat oven to 350°F.
In a medium bowl combine chicken, tomatoes, basil, green onion, 2 tablespoons olive oil, vinaigrette and pepper. Allow flavors to blend for about 15 minutes.
