    Alicia Ross/Kitchen Scoop


1 unbaked club sandwich roll or 1/3 unbaked baguette

4 teaspoons prepared pesto

1/3 pound grilled skinless, boneless chicken breast strips (see note)

1 ounce thinly sliced fresh, part-skim mozzarella cheese

2 slices fresh tomato

Heat oven to 425 degrees.

Slice roll in half and spread 2 teaspoons pesto on each half. Top one side with chicken, cheese, tomato and remaining roll half. Bake on foil-lined pan 8-10 minutes, until heated through (cheese is melted and roll is golden brown). Serve immediately.

Serves one.

Cook's note: For grilled chicken, use your personal leftovers, or chicken purchased in the deli or refrigerated sandwich section, or whole grilled chicken breast halves purchased from the ready-to-eat section of the grocery and then sliced.
