Get Cooking!

In a medium pot, add the strawberries, jalapeno, sugar and lemon juice. Cook over medium high heat for 1015 minutes until mixture is reduced by ½, stirring frequently to make sure it does not burn or reduce too far. Let cool to thicken.

Brush the olive oil onto the inside of the baguette and sprinkle with salt. Preheat oven to 350°F and bake the baguette for 5 minutes until toasted.

Add the chicken and jam in the frying pan and warm up the chicken over medium heat. Place the chicken on the bottom of the baguette, and top with the brie cheese and the arugula.

Cut the baguette in half and serve.
