This Focaccia chicken sandwich reminds me a little bit of Italy. It combines fresh Mozzarella cheese with roasted red peppers and avocado and a creamy basil pesto. Avocado and tomato slices add more nutritious goodness to the sandwich.
Serve with a side of sweet potato fries and a fresh dill pickle and you will think you are having lunch at your favorite trendy restaurant.
