Pesto Chicken Sandwich

Pesto Chicken Sandwiches are a great way to use garden-fresh basil and tomatoes. These sandwiches are made up of toasted sourdough stacked with seasoned grilled chicken, garden fresh tomatoes, homemade pesto and swiss cheese. Serve with a side of potato chips or Glacier Gold Sweet Potato Fries (#1211) for an easy dinner at home.

Are you a pesto lover?

Make up a batch of pesto using the recipe below and store it in the freezer to use at a later date! If stored correctly, it will maintain best quality for about 4 months. Although, it will last longer. We recommend storing it in a mason jar or deli container.
