I love a good sandwich. I mean LOVE. Like stalker kind of love. This grilled chicken sandwich is one I fall in love with all over again every time I make it. It has so many layers of deliciousness. I made fire roasted yellow and red pepper pesto. I also made Smoked Chicken. Then I combined those things to make this over the top grilled sandwich. It’s so good you may want to hug me. But don’t. Kim does not like PDA. Seriously, don’t try it.

What you can try is this sandwich. It is so worth the effort. If you have smoked chicken it works beautifully on this. If you don’t and just want to slap any old chicken on here that’s okay too. Well, maybe not an old chicken. Make sure it’s fresh. Don’t want you taking me literally and going to the butcher to ask for an “old chicken”. How embarrassing would that be.

You can use Brick Chicken in this too if you like. If you’re just in a serious lazy mood you can even buy a rotisserie chicken and use that. Whatever floats your boat, man. Pick your battles in life. Chicken ain’t one of them. Ain’t no one got time for that.

So pick your chicken, make your Fire Roasted Yellow and Red Pepper Pesto and get to stepping. Out on your deck that is. Or you patio. Whatever. Just get to stepping wherever your grill is. Then grill this mother. Grill it, eat it, thank me after your third or fourth one. You know, whenever you stop for air. I’m in no rush. I can’t wait.

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Heat your chicken pieces up on the grill. Use a cookie sheet if the pieces are small.
  2. Now use garlic butter and spread that stuff liberally all over the baguette. Pop the spread side of the baguette down and grill until golden, about 3 minutes.
  3. Now take that baguette off the grill.
  4. Pop a cookie sheet or pizza stone on the grill.
  5. Place the bottom of the baguette bottom side down on the cookie sheet. Start piling on the chicken and layer it with roasted red peppers, cheese and pesto. However you want to layer it is fine by me. Just go nuts and pile that sucker high.
  6. Put the top of the baguette on, well, the top obviously.
  7. Put the lid of the grill down and let that sucker heat up until the cheese melts. It will take a few minutes. Do not have your grill too hot or you will scorch the bread. If you're concerned it's too close to the grates use bricks to lift the cookie sheet up off the grill grates a little bit.
  8. Pull it off the grill and slap more pesto on it.
  9. You can make your own favourite pesto, or make my Fire Roasted Yellow and Red Pepper Pesto
  10. Serve with a big old sandwich loving smile!

Grilled Smoked Chicken Sandwich with Roasted Red Peppers, Mozzarella, and Red and Yellow Pepper Pesto

If you want to learn how to Fire Roast Bell Peppers there is a great tutorial on the blog. You can also use your own favourite pesto recipe on this or make my Fire Roasted Yellow and Red Pepper Pesto. Whatever works for you.

I would personally recommend making the Fire Roasted Yellow and Red Pepper Pesto though. I mean just look at it.

Totally worth the effort. I’ve already had  one (okay, so I had three) and I still want to sink my teeth into another one. Just one bite. One little bite.

Now go forth and make sandwiches. Now. Then share one with a friend. We’re friends, right? I like mine piled extra high.

Now be confident and get your grill on!

  1. This sandwich totally has me drooling! YUM

  2. NOW that is a SANDWICH!!! Smoked mozzarella would be terrific in this as well! Love the pesto!!

    • It’s so good. I had a blast making this. Almost every element was grilled then grilled again. It was epic.

    • Jonathan Harris says:

      I’m thinking Smoked Gouda.If you never tried it it tastes like Bacon cheese….yummmmmmm! I’m pretty sure you have miss Kim but some of your followers may have not..

      • That sounds like a good replacement! I love mozzarella – but, it doesn’t love me anymore. Gonna have to try this :)

  3. I’m a sucker for a good sandwich, too! Love the use of the smoked chicken.

  4. I’m the same way with a good sammich – that makes me want to cry just looking at it! And ummmm…pretty sure I gave you a hug when we met. Do you hate me now? Am I going to hug you with my mind when we see each other next? ;) xo

    • It’s so good.

      And lol, I do hug on occasion, then I pretend not to be freaked out by it. I must drive hubs nuts, he tried to put his arm around me while we were walking the other day and I’m like “dude, don’t make me hurt you”. I’m a keeper. We’re totally hugging at the next conference. And I’ll even pretend I like it. Bah ha ha.

  5. That sounds super flavorful! I don’t think I’ve ever had pesto made from peppers!

  6. This looks phenomenal, Kim. I love a good sandwich too and this one looks right up my alley. Piled so high that the crusty bread scratches the roof of my mouth and smothered with ooey gooey cheese!

  7. Ginny McMeans says:

    Gorgeous photos – as always and your sandwich layering is perfect!

  8. That is one serious, SERIOUS sandwich.

  9. Oh my word. That sandwich. I need it. Now.

  10. That Roasted Red pepper pesto looks fab. I’m not normally a roasted red pepper fan (no idea why.) but that looks amazing!

  11. I have to admit that I’m not a sandwich person… but this one totally turned my head!! I think it’s those roasted peppers. Fabulous!

    • I’m not much of one either, unless it’s a hot sandwich. I’m like that with bread too, I hate eating it cold. Weird right.

  12. You are having way too much fun with this smoker, Kim :) This looks fabulous!!

    • I know right. It’s my jam. K hates it. She finds the smoke taste overwhelming. I need to have a chat with my idol, Mr Ted Reader and see if he suggest something that would make it less intense for her.

  13. Holy sandwich!!

  14. That is one serious sandwich!! I love smoked chicken, but I did’t make nearly enough of it this summer. I might have to drag the smoker out one last time before it gets too cold.

    • Ha, I leave mine out year round. I may move my grills and smoker to the patio since it’s blocked on all sides from wind, then I could set the smoker on a wheeled cart and wheel it in and out of the garage. I’m a nut right.

      You gotta try this. You will love it.

  15. Elizabeth@ Food Ramblings says:

    I am so hungry right now and all I want is one of those sandwiches!

  16. Those photos are pulling me in!! I need this!

    • Ha, thanks Angie. You gotta try these. I have another one that’s our absolute favourite posting this weekend. It’s a true Kim original. And is the bomb.

  17. OMG….can you make this for me…pretty please?

  18. OMG…fantastic looking. The photograph is outstanding and the ingredients inside are mouth watering. You could almost taste the peppers.
