  • Outdoor Grill



  • Cut chicken breast in half and pound it to thin it out.
  • Drizzle olive oil over both sides and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill chicken until cooked through.
  • While chicken is grilling, cut ciabatta rolls in half. Set aside.
  • Mix pesto and mayonnaise together and spread evenly over the ciabatta roll halves. Top with fresh mozzarella and broil until bread is golden brown on the edges and the cheese is slightly melted.
  • Add chicken, bacon, arugula, and tomatoes. Enjoy!
