The last few weeks have been super busy around here between end of school and promotion festivities. Not to mention having everyone home , coming and going during the day. So when my daughter wanted to have a bigger lunch one day before heading to work, she and I came up with this Chicken Cutlet Sandwich with Bacon, Avocado & Pesto.

Chicken Cutlet Sandwich with Bacon, Avocado & Pesto on Ciabatta

I happened to have leftover chicken cutlets in the refrigerator from the night before and a freshly purchased loaf of Ciabatta bread which sounded like the makings of a good sandwich to me. The bacon, avocado and pesto were an added bonus.

If you don’t have chicken cutlets already prepared, I suggest purchasing either chicken tenderloins or the already sliced thin chicken breasts. Dredge them in flour, egg wash and breadcrumbs; then fry them in extra virgin olive oil until the chicken is cooked through. You can also multitask and do this while the bacon is cooking. I would allow for an extra 15 minutes to prepare this sandwich if you’re making the cutlets at the same time.

We toasted our bread to give it a little added crunch and I have to say the combination of all of the flavors was AH-MAZ-ING! This Chicken Cutlet Sandwich with Bacon, Avocado & Pesto makes a tasty sandwich for lunch or dinner; especially when you’re looking for dinner ideas where you don’t need to turn on the oven. ~Enjoy!
