Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich - Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club

Mozzarella & Pesto Chicken Sandwich

What a delicious Mozzarella Chicken sandwich with pesto that I made for our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club. This month our theme is: Light Lunches. It's already September and my three kids are back to school next week. Two at university and one at high school. Since they started kindergarden I made nutritious lunches for them. That way you know what your kids are eating at school. It's a good habit to pack your own lunch and now my daughter packs a lunch when she goes to work in the summer.

Packing a lunch is not only for kids that are going back to school but for working adults also. When I was working I always brought lunch to work. It was healthier and cheaper.


This month our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club made recipes for lunches.

Also I suggest that you visit Cooking Light for more ideas on: Packables Lunches.

  5. I love the melted mozzarella, a perfect sandwich for both brown bagiing it and lunch at home with the family. Thanks for bringing this to our Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club this month.

  6. The best part of packing a great lunch is the envious stares from folks who want to know where you bought your food. When you say you made it, it's always funny. :) Big proponents of making lunch for school or work! Please pass this sandwich our way.

  23. 95% of the time I pack my lunch too. It's cheaper, healthier, and (call me a food snob) my food tastes better than the dry sandwiches and salty soups at the usual lunch hangouts.

  24. Wow, Helene! Your photo is AMAZING. This sandwich looks too good to eat. (Well, almost.) This is the kind of lunch that could make a bad day good.

  25. Yum anyone would be lucky to pack this for lunch!! My lunches are not usually so exciting or gorgeous.

  26. Here in France people never pack lunches for work (or school). Your sandwich looks delicious!

  27. I, too, pack a lunch as often as possible. It's the best way to get the freshest and healthiest food.

  30. Yum -- how can you beat pesto with chicken? This looks fabulous.

    Actually, all the suggested recipes sound great! I'll have to tuck the ideas into my recipe binder. Inevitably there are days when we don't have leftovers from dinner the night before and we need a good sammich for lunch.

  35. Helene, I haven't visited your blog in a little while and I must say I love the new look! Your photos are so fantastic - did you get a new camera or is just that they stand out better on this light background? Regardless, you deserve kudos!

  36. Merci Hélène, pour ce billet! Je suis allergique aux arachides et c'est un réel défi que d'éviter d'en consommer. Ce fût un véritable casse-tête pour ma mère et c'est une difficulté de tous les jours pour moi. La beauté de la chose: c'est que j'ai été obligée d'apprendre à cuisiner! Continue ton beau travail, il est très apprécié:))

  40. This is the perfect sauce for all types of pasta... full of great flavors; filling, but not heavy and only gets better for the next day leftovers.
