  • 4 Foccacia buns
  • 1/4 cup + 1 tbsp basil pesto (you can use my basil pesto recipe or use store bought)
  • 1/2 cup light mayonnaise
  • 4 cups cooked chicken breast, cubed (you can shred the chicken too if you prefer)
  • Pinch of pepper
  • 1 tsp lemon juice

  1. Combine mayonnaise, pesto, lemon juice and pepper using a whisk.
  2. Add cooked chicken to the mayo/pesto mix and combine.
  3. Put this in a container in the fridge for at least 1 hour before serving so that the flavors develop.
  4. Slice the buns horizontally and lay down a bed of baby spinach leaves in desired amount.
  5. Top spinach leaves with basil pesto chicken salad.
  6. Add slices of sun-dried tomato on top of the pesto chicken.
  7. Top with swiss cheese and the top of the bun.
