Mozzarella Chicken Sandwich

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.
