Grill or toast the bread and then spread the tahini paste.
Heat the leftover boneless chicken in a pan or in the oven if required.
Then, in a pan with little oil and high heat, saute the sliced onions and bell peppers for a minute and then add salt and pepper.
Dress the rocket leaves with salt, pepper, lemon juice and olive oil.
Now, pile the bread with the onions, peppers and chicken pieces and finally, cover with the scarmoza / moazzarella cheese.
