Sun dried Tomato, Goat Cheese, and Chicken Sandwich

Note: Makes 1 Sandwich
1 chicken breast
2 tablespoons goat cheese
2 tablespoon sun dried tomato pesto (recipe follows)
1 kaiser roll
mixed greens

Sun Dried Tomato Pesto:
1 4 oz jar sun dried tomatoes in oil
1 garlic clove
4 basil leaves

Drain the oil out of the sun dried tomatoes and put in a food processor or blender.  Take 3 to 4 tablespoons of the oil and marinade your chicken breast in it.  With the tomatoes, toss in the garlic clove, basil leaves, and a pinch of salt.  Blend or process until smooth.  Drizzle in 3 tablespoons of the oil and blend until smooth.

*Note: If you don't have a blender or food processor, chop of all of the ingredients very finely and mix with some of the oil for a chunkier spread.

Let the chicken marinade for about a half hour.  Once it is done marinading, heat a skillet on medium heat.  Grill the chicken for 6-7 minutes on one side and cook 4-5 minutes on the other side.

While the chicken is cooking, toast your roll in a toaster or in the oven until lightly golden.  Spread the bottom and top of the roll with the sun dried tomato pesto and place the goat cheese on the bottom roll.  Once the chicken is done cooking, place it on the goat cheese.  Top with mixed greens and enjoy!
