Chicken Pesto & Feta Cheese Sandwich

"This is a great sandwich & about the best way I know to use leftover grilled chicken & roasted peppers, so plan ahead for it + marinating the mushrooms. My source is the Wildflower Bread Co in Scottsdale, AZ. Stated times do not include the original prep/cooking of the chicken & peppers or the refrigerated marination of the mushrooms. Enjoy! .. *Edited to Add* -- This recipe was included for Greece in ZWT6 due to its strong Mediterranean influence + the use of feta cheese & pesto. :-)"

    Great hearty and flavor-packed sandwich! I didn't have the mushrooms I thought were on hand the evening before I planned to have this, so just used jarred sliced mushrooms and marinated them in the balsamic for about 6 hours. The pesto was a great addition, perfect with the other flavors. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT9, The Apron String Travelers
