Ingredients

  • 2 pieces thinly sliced chicken breast
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil
  • Black pepper
  • 2 slices sourdough bread
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon pesto
  • 2 slices provolone cheese
  • 2 slices tomato
  • 4 butter lettuce leaves

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lay out the chicken pieces and drizzle with olive oil on both sides. Add pepper to taste.

Bake chicken for about 5 minutes, or until cooked through.

In the meantime, toast the bread slices. Mix together pesto and mayonnaise and spread on one side of each bread slice. Pile the chicken, provolone, tomatoes, and lettuce on a slice of bread, pesto side up. Top with second slice. Slice in half and serve.

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.

Chicken Wine Pairing

Pinot noir, gamay, merlot, zinfandel, carménère, pinotage, or grenache with grilled, roasted, or other simply cooked chicken; chardonnay, pinot gris/grigio, pinot blanc, or chenin blanc with chicken in cream or light tomato sauce or with chicken crêpes or croquettes; sauvignon blanc or sémillon with fried chicken; viognier with spiced chicken dishes.
