  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/2 cup of basil pesto, divided, homemade, or store-bought
  • 2 tablespoons sundried tomatoes in olive oil
  • 4 slices of Land O Lakes Sharp Cheddar American Blend
  • 4 slices of bread


  • Preheat your grill on high.
  • Using 1/4 cup of basil pesto, brush chicken breasts with pesto.
  • Grill the chicken breasts until cooked through (the insides reaching 160 degrees Fahrenheit). Before you bring the chicken inside, place 2 slices of cheese on each chicken breast and close the lid of the grill to let it melt.
  • To assemble the sandwich: place one chicken breast on one slice of bread, top with bit of the remaining basil pesto then top with 1 tablespoon of sundried tomatoes. Place the other slice of bread on top. Repeat with the other sandwich.
