Quick Note

Chicken breast – use organic or free-range.

Optional: I know this step is important but you don’t have to do it if you feel lazy. Another option is to ask your butcher to do it for you. So, what is it? Place the chicken between sheets of plastic wrap and pound until they are even in thickness. In case you are angry, please pound lightly.

Spinach – I used fresh, organic

Cheese – I used store bought mozzarella cheese. Feel free to use the cheese you like.

Sour cream – organic, 14%

Feta cheese – I used Greek cheese made of sheep and goat’s milk

Basil Pesto – you can use homemade or store bought

Bread – this is the bread I like to use when making chicken sandwich.
