My Menu Pal’s Oh So Perfect Pesto Sauce
- If you don’t have a Panini press, you can use a pan on the stove top and press down the sandwich with a smaller pan on top. Or assemble the sandwich and toast open-faced in a toaster until the cheese is melted.
- If time allows, roast your own red peppers by slicing the pepper into strips. Drizzle with a little bit of extra-virgin olive oil. Roast peppers at 400℉ for 15 minutes or until soft and beginning to brown.
- If basil is in season, try using basil instead of spinach in the sandwiches for a boost of flavor.
Make Ahead: Bake the chicken the day before and then when it is time to make the sandwiches, you can quickly assemble and toast for a speedy dinner.
Simplify It: Use rotisserie chicken or another pre-cooked chicken option from the grocery store.
