Pesto Parmesan Chicken Sandwiches
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 boneless skinless
chicken breast halves (see note)
About 1/4 cup prepared pesto
4 thick slices of tomato
About 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
4 sandwich buns
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Place the chicken breasts in
the skillet and top each one with 2 teaspoons pesto (or more if desired). Cook
about 7 minutes and then flip over. Add about 2 more teaspoons of pesto to each
breast and cook until done, about 5 to 7 more minutes. During the last minute of
cooking, add one tablespoon of Parmesan cheese, or more if you like, to each
breast and let it melt. Put the chicken on a bun and top with a slice of tomato.
Makes 4 sandwiches.
Tester's note: If you prefer leaner sandwiches, use two boneless chicken breast
halves, pound them flat and cut them in half again to make four sandwiches. They
won't need to cook quite as long.
