Pesto Chicken Salad SandwichI bought a couple of Costco rotisserie chickens the other day and made a big pot of chicken stock. I had plenty of meat for chicken soup so I decided to try something new with the extra. It turned out great. I used a whole wheat tortilla but bread or a roll would have been just as good. If you have leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, it would probably be a nice change from the classic turkey sandwich


  • 1 cup pesto (store bought or homemade)
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1/2 red onion, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. mayo, or to taste
  • salt and pepper
  • lettuce
  • bread, wraps or tortilla


Mix together chicken, pesto, onion, celery and mayo to a creamy consistency. Spread on bread, tortilla or wrap and add a lettuce leaf.

This would also be good with crackers or just as a salad. I was tempted to add tomatoes (which go so well with pesto) or fruit such as grapes or pears but I left this one as is. I may have it for lunch again tomorrow!
