  • 3 cups cubed or shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 canned roasted red pepper
  • 1/2 cup prepared basil pesto
  • 1 cup real mayo
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • Assembly: bread, tomato, munster or cheddar cheese, lettuce, avocado, etc. (whatever you like on a sandwich!)
  • Optional: 2-3 tablespoons chopped parsley


  1. I like to use a rotisserie chicken that has already had the skin and bones removed, but if not, remove those and shred or cube the chicken.
  2. Take 1 canned roasted red pepper and finely chop.
  3. Toss the cubed chicken, finely chop red pepper, prepared basil pesto, mayo, and sliced almonds in a bowl. Mix until completely combined.
  4. Season with salt and pepper. If desired add in the fresh parsley.
  5. Make your sandwich! Top the bread with the filling and then whatever you like on a sandwich -- tomato, cheese, lettuce, avocado, etc.
