Chicken and Roasted Red Pepper Sandwiches

by Laura

I have a new favorite sandwich. It is easy to make and tastes amazing. A big bonus is the chicken is prepared in the slow cooker. Slow cooked meals are such a great option for summer. They save energy and don’t heat up the house.

I also loved that this all comes together with just a few ingredients. Pesto happens to be one of them. You can buy bottled pesto at the grocery store right with the spaghetti sauce. I however prefer to buy it in the refrigerated section. I love to get a big bottle of it from Costco or Sam’s Club. However if you don’t want such a big bottle, Walmart has a small tub that can be found in either the produce or deli refrigerated section.

Last, the sandwich is made on a loaf of focaccia bread. I pick up my loaf from Sam’s Club. I used their rosemary and sea salt loaf. If you prefer, you can always make your own or even use some other kind of roll or bread to serve it on. I think ciabatta would be another great option.
