Original recipe yields 2 sandwiches

Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium heat; lightly oil the grate.
  2. Place basil, oil, garlic, Romano cheese, oregano, and pepper into a blender. Blend on high until smooth, adding additional oil if necessary, about 30 seconds.
  3. Grill chicken until juices run clear, about 5 minutes per side. Do not turn off grill.
  4. Spoon 1 tablespoon of Caesar dressing onto 2 slices of bread. Top each with lettuce, and an additional slice of bread. Spread the second slice of bread thickly with the pesto. Top each sandwich with a cooked chicken breast, a slice of smoked mozzarella, and the remaining bread.
  5. Grill sandwiches until the cheese is melted, and the bread is toasted, about 3 minutes per side.

In a word...FANTASTIC! I pounded the chicken thin and seasoned it with salt and pepper,used a flat bread and my indoor grill. Many flavors but nothing overpowers anything else. This will be a regular in my house.

The whole family loved it. We grilled the chicken, sliced it up and used chibata bread in a panini maker. We also added tomato in place of letuce and added black Forrest ham. Delicious.
