Let's get down to business and figure out how to cook this mouthwatering sandwich, shall we?

Ingredients You'll Need

In order to put together a quick and simple chicken pesto sandwich, you will need the following ingredients:

  • 2 slices of bread
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Garlic powder
  • Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup pesto sauce (storebought/homemade)
  • Greens (arugula/spinach) (optional)
  • Tomato
  • Roasted Peppers
  • 1 slice of provolone cheese/cheddar cheese

How to Make Chicken Pesto Sandwich

Step 1: Prepare the Chicken

To get things started, let's get the chicken ready to go. Before beginning the cooking process, the chicken breasts should be seasoned on both sides with salt and pepper. For even more flavor, you might try including more garlic powder or Italian seasoning in the dish.

Next, bring a grill pan or a skillet that doesn't stick to the heat to medium. To keep the chicken from getting stuck in the pan, a small amount of olive oil to prevent it from becoming sticky. It is recommended that the internal temperature of the chicken have been brought up to 165 degrees Fahrenheit (74 degrees Celsius). Take the chicken out of the pan and give it a few minutes to cool down before slicing it into thin strips.

Step 2: Assemble the Sandwich

It's time to put the finishing touches on the sandwich now that the chicken is done cooking. To begin, spread a liberal amount of basil pesto on one side of each slice of bread using a spreader. Not only will this contribute flavor, but it will also assist in keeping the sandwich together.

After that, arrange slices of chicken on top of the pesto in a layering fashion. Make sure the chicken is uniformly distributed throughout the dish so that each bite is packed with flavor. 

After the layer of chicken, add a layer of fresh rockets or greens (optional) and tomato and peppers on top of it. The sandwich will get a good crunch from these greens, and it will get a burst of freshness from them as well.

Last but not least, finish by topping it with provolone or cheddar cheese. The lusciousness of the cheese will make an excellent accompaniment to the flavors of the pesto and the chicken.

Step 3: Toast the Sandwich (Optional)

You can toast the sandwich to add an additional dimension of delectability to it. This step is entirely optional, however doing so results in a delightfully crunchy bite and aids in the melting of the provolone/cheddar cheese.

To give the sandwich a toasted appearance, preheat a panini press or a skillet made of a nonstick material over medium heat. If you are cooking the bread in a skillet, to keep it from getting stuck to the bottom of the pan, add a little bit of olive oil. Put the sandwich in the panini press or skillet and allow it to cook for two to three minutes on each side or until the bread is toasted and the cheese has melted, whichever comes first.

Step 4: Serve and take delight in it

After the bread on your sandwich has been toasted (or left untoasted, if that's how you like it), it's time to plate it and eat it.

Make a cut through the middle of the sandwich, and serve it with a side dish of your choice, such as a crisp salad or a steaming bowl of soup. And there you have it - a chicken pesto sandwich that is not only tasty but also simple to make and is suitable for any meal.

For a quick meal that's still packed with flavor, try making a chicken pesto sandwich for lunch or dinner. A nourishing lunch that can be eaten on the fly, it can be served alongside soup/salad. You can make a sandwich that will leave your taste senses drooling if you just follow these simple instructions in exactly the right order. You have worked hard, and you should reward yourself by indulging in this delectable meal. You have earned it.
