PESTO & ASPARAGUS CHICKEN SUBS

February 25, 2019

I like hot sandwiches for nights when we need something super easy, but I don’t want to feel full gross by eating  frozen pizzas. So different ways to do a panini or sub or something, I welcome.

This one takes deli chicken (because not dealing with raw meat is essential when going for easy). PESTO for lots of flavor. Asparagus for a vegetable to feel not terrible. And BAGUETTES because that is going to take you much further than bland bagged bread.

I have had a panini maker for a while, which for some people may be a kitchen appliance that collects dust, but we like it for making our sandwiches a little special. OR sometimes we still just put them under the broiler for a bit instead of getting the panini maker out, so you could do that if you don’t have one.

Pesto & Asparagus Chicken Subs
Serves four

1 bundle asparagus
1 onion
Olive oil
Salt
Pepper
1 batch pesto
1 baguette, sliced in halves
1 pound sliced deli chicken

Spread pesto on half of bread slices. On the other halves, layer on sliced chicken, asparagus, onion, and mozzarella.

Toast under broiler or press in a panini maker.

  • You got some lovely photos here. This sandwich really looks so delicious. I do love that it has asparagus in it because I just love this vegetable. This is certainly a good snack for the kids when they come home after class. They really deserve such a treat, you know. Thank you for this recipe.
