For the Herb Feta Pesto:

  • 4 cloves garlic
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • A handful of fresh basil, cilantro, and parsley (about 1/4 cup combined)
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup feta cheese
  • 3/4 cup olive oil

For the Sandwich:

  • 1 Ciabatta loaf, cut into 2 sandwich-sized portions
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 ripe avocado, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced
  • Mozzarella cheese slices
  • Olive tapenade


For the Herb Feta Pesto:

  1. In a food processor, combine the garlic, a pinch of salt and pepper, fresh basil, cilantro, parsley, sour cream, feta cheese, and olive oil.

  2. Pulse the mixture until it forms a smooth and creamy pesto. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Set the pesto aside.

For the Sandwich:

  1. Preheat your grill or a skillet over medium-high heat.

  2. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper.

  3. Grill or pan-sear the chicken breasts for about 6-7 minutes per side or until they are cooked through and have nice grill marks. Ensure the internal temperature reaches 165°F (74°C).

  4. While the chicken is cooking, slice the Ciabatta loaf into two sandwich-sized portions. You can toast the bread lightly if desired.

  5. Once the chicken is cooked, remove it from the heat and let it rest for a few minutes. Then, slice it into thin strips.

  6. Assemble the sandwiches: Spread a generous amount of the Herb Feta Pesto on one side of each Ciabatta portion.

  7. On the bottom half of the Ciabatta, layer the grilled chicken slices, avocado slices, tomato slices, Mozzarella cheese slices, and a dollop of olive tapenade.

  8. Top with the other half of the Ciabatta.

  9. If desired, you can warm the assembled sandwich in a panini press or a preheated oven for a few minutes to melt the cheese and heat through the ingredients.

  10. Slice the sandwich in half diagonally for a beautiful presentation.

  11. Serve your Herb Feta Pesto Chicken Sandwich immediately and enjoy the delicious combination of flavors and textures.
