Chicken Pesto Sandwiches
1/4 cup basil pesto (such as Classico)
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
chicken breasts (3 or 4)
salt and pepper to taste
french bread (I bought some at wal-mart that was crusted with red peppers on the top - very good)
bottled roasted red bell peppers
Combine pesto and mayonnaise in a small bowl, stirring to blend.
Sprinkle chicken with pepper and salt. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook for 3 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chicken to cutting board, and cool slightly. Cut chicken lengthwise into thin slices.Cut bread in half horizontally. Place bread, cut sides up, on a baking sheet. Broil 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove bread from pan. Spread pesto mixture evenly over cut sides of bread. Arrange the chicken slices evenly over bottom half. Sprinkle cheese on top. Return to broiler until cheese is melted. Top with red peppers and cover with top half of bread. Cut into individual sandwiches.
