I hate following complicated recipes. After a busy day at work, the last thing I want to do is spend my evening in the kitchen making dinner. This 5 ingredient Chicken Pesto Sandwich is really simple to make, and perfect for those nights when you want a delicious, balanced, and satisfying dinner without all the work.


The key to this quick and easy recipe is pesto, an herb-based condiment that's loaded with flavour and cuts down the need for additional ingredients and food-prep steps. Serve this sandwich with a side of vegetable sticks or a salad to keep things balanced.

2 tomato slices

1 small chicken breast, seasoned to taste, grilled 

2 tbsp pesto

1 thin slice of mozzarella cheese


How to make it: 


1. Spread 1 tbsp pesto on each inside half of the bun. Assemble sandwich by topping with tomato slices, grilled chicken, and mozzarella cheese


3. Grill on a panini press or on grill until cheese has melted and sandwich is warmed through. Serve with a side salad.
