Chicken Pesto Sandwiches

I love being home for the summer, but lunches can become a challenge!  You want something that is summer-like, but you can only do cold cuts so many times.  So, why not change things up with this delightful sandwich. 

Whole wheat bread. Check.

Melted, gooey Mozzarella cheese.  Check.

Sweet and tangy roasted tomatoes. Check.

Creamy pesto wrapped around shredded chicken. Check. 

These sandwiches were a huge hit!  The perfect thing to get us out of our summer sandwich rut.

1 (15oz) can cooked chicken, shredded 1/2 C creamy spinach pesto Whole Wheat Buns Mozzarella Cheese Roasted Tomatoes


Begin by mixing together the shredded chicken with 1/2 C of the pesto. Set aside. 

Next, slice open your roll/bun.  On one half, place some mozzarella cheese slices, to taste. 

Pop that bread into the oven, under the broiler and broil for about 5 minutes until cheese is melted and bread is slightly toasted. 

Top with 4-5 T of the chicken mixture and roasted tomatoes.
