Sandwiches are a frequent dinner in our house and here’s my latest creation that my family went crazy for: Italian Chicken Pesto Flatbread Sandwich. With chicken marinated in a robust Italian dressing, plus the addition of pesto and mozzarella cheese, you can’t go wrong.


  • 1 packet Wish-Bone Italian Dressing and Seasoning Mix
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup white balsamic vinegar (can sub other vinegars)
  • 1 1/2 pounds Tyson Chicken Breasts (cut in thin strips)
  • 6 flatbreads
  • 6 tablespoons pesto sauce (use less if desired or if pesto is thin)
  • 612 slices mozzarella cheese (exact amount depends on your preference)
  • 12 slices tomato


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing mix, oil, water, and vinegar. Place chicken strips in a large bowl. Combine 1/3 cup of dressing marinade with chicken strips (reserve remaining marinade for later). Allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. After marinating, use a slotted spoon to add chicken strips to a skillet on medium-high heat. Discard remaining chicken marinade. Cook chicken until cooked through and beginning to brown. If necessary, pour off and discard any liquid that collects in skillet during cooking.
  3. Heat panini maker or indoor grill according to manufacturer instructions. Brush one side of a flatbread with previously reserved marinade. Place coated side down on panini maker or indoor grill. Spread 1/2 – 1 tablespoon pesto sauce on 1/2 of the flatbread. Top pesto with a slice of mozzarella cheese, breaking up cheese into pieces, if necessary to ensure covering most of the pesto sauce. Top cheese with about 2 ounces of cooked chicken and then 2 tomato slices. If you like extra cheese, add a bit more cheese on top of the tomatoes.
  4. Fold flatbread without fillings over onto the side with the fillings and cook until browned and cheese is melted. Cut in half to serve, if desire.
