Caprese Chicken Salad Sandwich

Caprese Chicken Salad Sandwich 7 I love this recipe because it’s totally a sandwich that I’d order for lunch at a restaurant. I’m sure that I have on many occasions. And now I’ve learned just how easy it is to make at home.

Lunch aside, this Caprese Chicken Salad Sandwich makes a great dinner option too…grain, protein, dairy and veggie- they’re all there. I love using rotisserie chicken, let the grocery store do the work for you. Using a rotisserie chicken to make a tasty sandwich is so convenient for weeknight meals, especially if you’re a family on the go…soccer practice, homework, or even a night you’d just rather spend in front of the TV or immersed in a good book. I have plenty of those.

As you know, caprese incorporates tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. Here’s the best part of this sandwich. These ingredients are not always fresh during winter, we use JARRED tomato pesto and basil pesto. They last longer than buying fresh tomatoes and fresh basil. ;)
