Pesto Chicken Melts



I love a good sandwich and when you incorporate ooey gooey cheese, well then, I like it even more! These Pesto Chicken Melts are easy and a fun change from the traditional grilled cheese. They are a family favorite around here!

Pesto Chicken Melts

Cal 358, Carbs 19.2, Fat 21.5, Protein 30

Ingredients
2 cups cooked chicken breast, shredded
1/4 cup pesto sauce
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
4 slices texas toast (You can reduce the calories and fat by using lite texas toast-we had none at our local grocery store)
fresh basil and chopped tomato, optional but I love the flavor

Bake texas toast according to package directions.

While toast is cooking, combine garlic powder, pesto, and chicken together. Set aside.

Remove toast from oven and evenly divide chicken mixture between the four pieces of texas toast. Sprinkle 1/4 cup mozzarella on each piece.

Broil for 1-2 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Top with chopped tomato and basil. Enjoy!
