Mozzarella Pesto Spinach Chicken Grilled Sandwich

Mozzarella Pesto Spinach Chicken Grilled Sandwich

I use whole wheat bread and then cover each slice with my homemade pesto.  Over that I place a slice of Mozzarella on each side.  Then I add grilled shredded chicken and spinach in the middle.  

I heat my electric griddle to 350 degrees (both plates) and then place the sandwich on the griddle and closed then lid.  I toast it for about 5-8 minutes watching for the cheese to melt and get gooey and the bread to brown.  You don’t need to put anything on the bread like you would when making a toasted cheese as the olive oil in the pesto is drawn through the bread and makes a nice crust.

You can make this without the chicken (as the original recipe did) or use cooked salmon, turkey or another protein.  Mix it up to your taste.

I put the small dollop of pesto on the shredded chicken just for the photo.

(This is my version of a recipe I read online and I can’t remember who had posted it.)
