Introduction

I used to eat these in college all the time. I went back to visit recently and rekindled my love of this sandwich. I usually use a toasted focacia roll because the onion in the focacia make the flavors of the sandwich pop that much more, but it's not good calorie wise :) I also prefer the flavor of buffalo mozzarella to the flavor of regular mozzarella but that's your call.

Ingredients

    Grilled Chicken Breast
    Roasted Red Peppers
    Buffalo Mozzarella
    Pesto (pre-made or homemade, but pre-made has more calories)


Directions

Makes 1 sandwich. The only prep is making the pesto if you want to make it your self other then that it's just cooking the chicken, toasting the bread, and making the sandwich.

Cook chicken breast on stove top or on the grill until cooked through. Toast bread to taste (I like my toast warm and barely brown but others in my house like their toast burnt). Spread pesto on one slice of bread. Layer mozzarella, red peppers, and chicken onto other slice of bread. Put together and enjoy!!!
