This sandwich was so easy to make and simply delicious. The only thing I added was tomato on top of the pesto layer. Great recipe to use with leftover chicken! Read More

Great weeknight recipe! Everyone loved it.... served with chips and fruit. Have also made it with sliced chicken from the deli, and the chicken doesn't fall out as easily when you flip it on the skillet. Read More

This was SOOOOOO good! I could only eat half one b/c I don't have a big appetite but my hubby ate two lol! I added strips of turkey bacon to the sandwich and I shredded my chicken b/c I don't like lots of meat. I also added slices of tomato. So yummy like the restaurant. I "cooked" it with my George Foreman grill and it was perfect. Wrapped each sandwich in foil individually so it's easy for leftovers. A winner. Read More

These are excellent! My husband and make these for lunches sometimes, better than McCallisters! I too used my George Foreman grill. I always add parmesan cheese too. And just since I like things from scratch I usually used fresh chicken, chop it up, and cook it in the skillet. Read More

Very good and easy. We added thin tomato slices. Watch the amount of olive oil on the bread. It can get greasy. Read More
