I can't keep chicken salad in this house....the family loves it so much!! This is a real treat when I make them.

Fabulous! I used yellow pepper, added a little roasted garlic mayo to the pesto & chicken, used spinach instead of lettuce, and served it on plain wheat bread since I didn't have an focaccia. This was a last minute decision for dinner, just to use up some leftover rotisserie chicken. Will make again for sure!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a medium bowl, stir chicken and pesto together.
  2. Stir in bell pepper and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Layer lettuce, onion and cheese on bottom half of each foxaccia square.
  4. Spread each with about 1/2 cup chicken mixture and top with another piece of focaccia.
  5. To serve, halve each sandwich diagonally.
  6. TIP: Some prepared pesto is drier than others, so if chicken mixture appears dry, stir in the Tbs. of olive oil.
