This sandwich is tasty for lunch or dinner. I experimented and came up with it one night when I wanted to make something quick, easy, and tasty for my girlfriend who loves pesto sauce. Enjoy!

  • Place basil, oil, garlic, Romano cheese, oregano, and pepper into a blender. Blend on high until smooth, adding additional oil if necessary, about 30 seconds.

  • Grill chicken until juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. Do not turn off grill.

  • Spoon 1 tablespoon of Caesar dressing onto 2 slices of bread. Top each with lettuce, and an additional slice of bread. Spread the second slice of bread thickly with the pesto. Top each sandwich with a cooked chicken breast, a slice of smoked mozzarella, and the remaining bread.

  • Grill sandwiches until the cheese is melted, and the bread is toasted, about 3 minutes per side.

In a word...FANTASTIC! I pounded the chicken thin and seasoned it with salt and pepper used a flat bread and my indoor grill. Many flavors but nothing overpowers anything else. This will be a regular in my house. Read More

Really yummy! I grilled the chicken breasts and melted the mozzarella on top of them--on the grill. Then I put together the sandwiches. Thanks for the recipe. Great way to use the pesto I had left over from pasta. Read More

Really good. I used my frozen pesto with ranch dressing (I didn't have caesar) and shredded mozarella cheese all on focaccia bread from my bread machine. Yummo! Perfect summer dinner. Read More

I used an already prepared basil pesto and these were really good! Very flavorful and easy to put together. I did marinate my chicken in ceasar dressing (regular not creamy) prior to cooking them quickly on the george foreman grill. Read More
