Chicken Pesto Sandwich


Pin It

 
Oh My Gawshhhhh This is so friggin' yummy! Going in, I had no clue what pesto was, or what it tasted like and I can tell you its super tasty. A light chessy, herb flavor. This is now a regular staple for this family, even the mighty picky eater 'sir caleb' ate every last bite. I was shocked. This was found here

  1. This looks like a great summer sandwich. I like to catagorize foods to seasons. This looks yummy.

    We may have met by chance...but we become friends by choice.

  2. Wow! That sandwich looks amazing! I love arugula, pesto and good bread so this is a must try. I usually put mixed greens in my sandwich, but never just arugula. Wonderful idea!

  3. This sounds delicious! I'm definitely going to try this recipe. No one in my family likes pesto but me, so I am always on the look out for something new to do with it.
