Here's a great way to use leftover cooked chicken: just bundle it up in a pesto-cheesy filling for sandwiches.

This was very tasty, and easy to make, except I cant get Pillsbury rolls in Oz, so I had to make my own. I kept tasting the filling, and loving it, but once I added the breadcrumbs, it went very dry. I will make this again, but leave out the breadcrumbs. Made for Aussie swap sept 2011.
