Place chicken breasts between plastic wrap and pound to flatten.

Add harissa paste, lime juice and salt in a large resealable plastic bag.

Knead bag to mix, then add chicken. Seal bag, then turn several times until well coated with mixture. Refrigerate for 2 hours to marinate.

Meanwhile, stir together chutney ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil.

Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

Remove cover and simmer on low heat for 5 to 10 minutes more to cook off excess liquid. (Chutney may be made several days ahead and stored tightly covered in the refrigerator.)

Preheat grill to medium-high or in a medium frying pan and cook chicken until cooked through, about 5 minutes per side.

Place cooked chicken on half of the bread pieces.

Spread on chutney and top with pepper strip and remaining bread.

Brush both sides lightly with oil and place on grill over medium heat.

Press down to flatten slightly with a panini press or foil-covered brick, or a spatula and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until lightly browned.

Serve with additional chutney, if desired.
