Expert Tips

You can use mahi mahi or salmon instead of chicken.

These hot chicken sandwiches with pesto and cheese are delicious for lunch or a light dinner after a long day of classes or work. I prepared them last week to share with my friends at home and they all loved them.

You can also use pork or chicken thighs.

The vegetarian version can be made with tomatoes, eggplant or grilled portobello mushrooms.

Directions

  • 1 Season the chicken with salt, pepper and vinegar. Let marinate for 15 minutes before using. Leave over night if you want.
  • 2 Cook 7 minutes on each side on the grill or cook in the oven at 350°F for 15 minutes.
  • 3 Cut the bread and spread one teaspoon of pesto on each piece of bread, add the cheese to the breast and create the sandwich. Move to the grill or to oven and toast on each side to your preference.
  • 4 Serve with potato or plantain chips.
