Italian Chicken Salad Sandwich

Italian Chicken Salad Sandwich

Last week I posted the Cucumber-Tomato Bruschetta in Phyllo Cups appetizer and told you all about the recipe contest I am currently in over at Kraft’s Breakstone’s sour cream site. To recap (and in case you didn’t happen to read that post), Kraft asked me to create three separate menu items – appetizer, main dish, and dessert –  using their Breakstone’s Triple Churned sour cream and my menu is going up again two other menus created by fellow food bloggers. This main dish continues with the spring-inspired theme of light, fresh and easy and puts an Italian twist on a traditional chicken salad, with the additions of Asiago cheese, a pesto spread, and ciabatta rolls.

Italian Chicken Salad Sandwich

This chicken salad is tossed in a sour-cream dressing instead of mayonnaise and includes Asiago cheese, sits on a bed of Romaine, and is sandwiched inside of a ciabatta roll slathered with your favorite pesto. A perfect springtime lunch, or dinner by the pool. Quick and easy, which makes it a breeze to throw together for company!
