Pesto Parmesan Chicken Sandwiches

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 cheese

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.
