Ingredients for the Pesto:

  • 1-10 oz. jar Cento sun dried tomatoes packed in oil
  • 1-2 cloves garlic coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper

Ingredients for the Sandwich:

  • Roll or bread I used ciabatta rolls
  • Lettuce or spinach
  • Cooked chicken breast - from a rotisserie chicken or deli counter


Make the Pesto:

  1. Separate sun dried tomatoes from the oil, but reserve the oil.
  2. Place sun dried tomatoes, garlic and pepper in a food processor. Pulse until mostly chopped. Scrape down sides of bowl and add 3 Tbs. reserved oil, and pulse again.

Assemble the Sandwich:

  1. Spread sun dried tomato pesto on top and bottom of roll. I used about a tablespoon for each. Add lettuce/spinach and chicken. Serve and enjoy.
