Pesto Chicken and Mozzarella Grilled Cheese Sandwich

Printer-friendly version


2 slices fresh whole wheat bread
1/2 to 1 cup boiled and shredded chicken
1 to 2 tbsp pesto
2 slices of tomato
1/2 cup beet greens (or other greens)
2 to 3 thick slices mozzarella


1) Toast both slices of bread in a toaster until they become stiff and golden. If you don’t have a toaster, you can place them on the oven racks on broil and toast both sides.
2) Place one slice of the toasted bread on a small oven-proof dish and lay the mozzarella on it. Broil it for 3 to 5 minutes, until the mozzarella starts to melt over the sides.
3) Mix the pesto with the boiled chicken.
4) Layer the greens, tomato, and chicken on the second slice of bread. Place the first slice of bread on top when the cheese has melted. Serve immediately.

** Tip from Chella  To make a lot of these amazing sandwiches at once here is a tip I found on Pinterest.  Sorry no link

Prepare your grilled cheese sandwiches as usual (buttered on both sides) Put sandwiches between two baking sheets. Bake 350° for 15-20 minutes.
