Focaccia Bread

The other day I made some Focaccia bread and decided you all would like to see it. :)
My pictures are not complete because I forgot to take a few.
But this Bread is Italian and is sorta like pizza crust, although I like it better.
You can eat it just plain or do what I did and make Chicken and Sauteed Onion Sandwiches.

First you mix up all the Ingredients, ( Imagine photo of flour and such ) And let rise for 20 minutes.
Then you mix up the topping which is Mozzarella cheese, Parmesan and Minced garlic.

And here is the Recipe which you must look at every once and a while just so you don't forget anything!

Here is the bread itself after it has been raised. Not to much dough.
You spread in on a baking sheet, And brush on Butter,
Then sprinkle your Cheese and Garlic mixture.

You bake it for 15 minutes and then, tada! you have a delicious bread.

For the Chicken - I marinated the chicken in Italian Dressing, salt and pepper.
and fried it until browned, Then keep warm. Saute Onions.
