Chicken Pesto Sandwich

This is a quick one that uses some store-bought items but its so worth it!

Sandwich for 2:

  • ¾ lb. to 1 lb. chicken breast
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • About 10-15 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 2-3 Tbsp. prepared pesto
  • 4 Large slices of bread


  1. In a large saute pan, heat some oil and pan-fry the chicken until cooked through. Then, set the chicken aside on a plate. Clean out the pan with tongs and a paper towel briefly. Place the pan off heat while you assemble the sandwich.
  2. When the chicken is cool enough to cut, slice the chicken. Build each sandwich by placing chicken on first, then pesto, then sun-dried tomatoes. Close sandwich. Drizzle olive oil in the pan and a little on the bread.
  3. Then, place the sandwiches in the pan on a low heat. Press down with another pan or lid to make it Panini style. Cook until golden brown on each side.
  4. Cut the sandwiches on the diagonal and enjoy!
