Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough


You’re going to love this pesto chicken sandwich. Sourdough, toasted in olive oil and topped with grilled chicken, pesto, Swiss cheese, and fresh tomatoes. A perfect easy and attractive dinner for guests or a cozy night in.






You might notice that there are only one and a half Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdoughs in these photos. That’s because I rage-ate the other half of one out of frustration in the middle of the photo shoot. If you’re going to throw an adult temper tantrum, I highly recommend doing it with one of these in your hands. It’s a delicious way to blow off a little steam.


You’ve got bright and salty pesto slathered over toasty sourdough and piled high with perfectly grilled chicken, Swiss cheese, and tomatoes. Pretty much all the best things in life in one delicious sandwich.


This is one of my favorite dinners for guests, because it’s fantastically easy, looks beautiful, and tastes so darn good. It’s also generously sized, so no one’s leaving the table hungry, and it’s a perfect way to use up extra leftover pesto you have sitting around your kitchen!
