Hello all! I haven’t blogged a recipe in a while. I was inspired by my friend Kelly! It was definitely about time. I hope you enjoy it. Pestohas been my all time favorite this past year. Chris’s momhas the bestPestoRecipe. Here is what I came up with. 🙂
PestoChicken Flatbread Sandwich:
1 Whole Wheat Tortilla 1 Laughing Cow Swiss Cheese Wedge 1 Chicken Breast 2 Tablespoons of Homemade Pesto Sauce
First you will want to make the Pesto Sauce. It will last up for 2 weeks in the refrigerator! So don’t worry about making too much. 🙂
Pesto Sauce: Basil: 2 cups (just leaves) Garlic: 3 cloves peeled Pine Nuts: 1/3 cup Olive Oil: 1 cup Parmesan Cheese: 1/2 cup
Now on to the sandwich! It is very simple and very good.
Grab 1 whole wheat tortilla. Any brand you would like! Spread 1 wedge of laughing cow swiss cheese onto the tortilla.
Mix the chicken with thePesto Sauce. You can either boil, fry, bake, or grill the chicken. It doesn’t matter. I like to shred the chicken before mixing it with the sauce. Once you are done mixing the sauce with the chicken place it on one side of the tortilla.
Add a tad more sauce on the other side of the tortilla then fold it over like a sandwich. Place it in the oven for 15 minutes or until warm. Lastly, turn the oven on to broil for 1 minute to make the tortilla crispy!
Dig in, enjoy, and go back for more if you please! 🙂 Pair it with a small salad, carrot sticks, and some berries for a nice balanced meal!
