mmmmm, mondays: chicken pesto croissants


i'm busy working on all my spring planting and yet i still have pesto left over from my harvesting last fall. with enough pesto to last me through the summer, here's a delicious summer sandwich with poached chicken and pesto...delicious! if you haven't read our "make your own pesto" post, check it out and plan to freeze some of your own for next spring!


chicken pesto croissants

4 full sized plain croissants, sliced open for sandwiches

2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts

2 celery stalks, finely chopped

1 white onion, finely chopped

1/2 to 1 cup pesto sauce

olive oil

toppings such as romaine lettuce, fresh mozzarella, and fresh tomato


boil the chicken breasts in water seasoned with chicken bouillon, worcestershire sauce, and minced garlic about ten minutes or until cooked through. cool and chop into small, bite sized chunks. mix with onion, celery, pesto sauce and enough olive oil to make chicken moist. spoon onto open croissants and serve with desired toppings. enjoy!
