I have been making this sandwich for dinner in the summer for a few years now. I’ve said this before, but I make a lot of chicken sandwiches in the summer to get out of the hot kitchen and enjoy the pool with the kids while I make dinner. I love my grill during the summer and it always gets a workout.
My mom used to make grilled pesto chicken while we grew up and it was the first type of chicken I ever made. We’d eat it for dinner with our favorite side dishes, chopped up on salads, and as a sandwich. I may have even eaten leftover pesto chicken cold, right out of the fridge a time or two.
Having this chicken on a sandwich with the roasted bell pepper and onion kicks it up a notch for a yummy variation. The flavors come together beautifully! I also make a pesto mayonnaise that works on this sandwich, and as the perfect dipping sauce for the Baked Rosemary Sweet Potatoes that always go alongside and Grilled Peaches for dessert!
