Sandwiches make quick, efficient meals–and, as runners, we love things that are quick and efficient, especially when it comes to our food. But the meat-cheese-bread combo we use to make most sandwiches can seem stale after a while. When you’re craving a sandwich that’ll tickle your tastebuds, give this recipe a try. Walnut and kale are both major ingredients here, so you know it’s healthy. For taste, the recipe includes something even better: pesto.
In a food processor, combine kale leaves, basil, salt, lemon juice, garlic, parmesan cheese and walnuts. Process until combined. Next, slowly stream in olive oil while food processor is on. Add 1 Tbsp. of water if pesto is too thick. Toss chicken with 3 Tbsp. of the pesto. (You will have some pesto leftover; this can keep for a few days in the fridge.) To assemble one sandwich, layer one slice of tomato on bottom half of bread. Add half of the pesto-chicken mixture and top with second piece of bread.
