Zupas Inspired Chicken Pesto Sandwich
I have never been to Zupas before, but since it had changed my husband’s life, I thought I would look at recipes that claimed to be a copycat and then put my own twist on the sandwich. I love chicken sandwiches and I found a sandwich that makes me say “YUM”!
This might turn into my new favorite sandwich and I WILL make this over and over again.
1 tomato, sliced
2 cups rotisserie chicken, cubed
1 roasted red pepper, cubed
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1 batch basil pesto, recipe below
1 cup mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons basil leaves
