I told you that I would give you some recipe ideas for the Arugula Pesto I posted the other day and I plan to make good on my promise! I know some people do not really know how to use pesto or maybe they are a little bit afraid. SO Iwanted to invent these recipes showing you versatile and awesome it is to add pesto to your cooking!

This recipe is for my Chicken & Aioli Tartines! This is a great quick dinner or lunch that will give you the feeling of being in a gourmet resturant but will only take you about 15 minutes to whip it up! How great is that. I love when something can taste great and take hardly any time to put together. I love that because it gives you more time to enjoy your food and your family time as well. OK so lets get to the tartines!

Chicken & Aioli Tartines

Ingredients

  • 5 ounces rotisserie chicken
  • 3 ounces fresh mozzarella
  • 3 to 4 sliced Roma tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons Arugula pesto(You can find that recipe here)
  • 2 teaspoons mayonnaise (I used Hellman’s or Best Foods if you are on the West coast)
  • 6 to 8 slices of bread (I used French bread but this would work with Cibata or Artisian bread as well)

First thing you want to do is make your Aioli. Are you wondering what an Aioli is? Ok I will tell you! An Aioli is just a garlic mayonasie. I did not make homemade mayonasie for this I just used store bought! It was much easier and time saver! For my aioli my Arugula Pesto and Hellman’s mayo got married and had this beautiful aioli baby! YUM!

To make the Aioli take two teaspoons of mayonaise and 2 tablespoons of the arugula pesto and mix it together! That is it folks! And now you have made Arugual Aioli and you just gave your tartine what it needs to be a tartine. A tartine is an open faced sandwich with a fancy spread!

Let’s get a closer look…

Look at all that creamy goodness! YUM your bread will thank you for this. If you are like some people I know and love (ahhemm BRENDA you can sub something like cream cheese for mayo!)Ok  set your aioli to the side and slice your bread.

After you have your bread sliced turn on the broiler in your oven and set it to “high.” Broil your slices of bread for about 4 to 5 minutes until they have started to toast and turn golden brown. Once they are browned removed them from the oven and the pan and set to the side.

 

While your bread is toasting slice up your mozerella cheese and your tomatoes.

Top your toast with aioli. I always use the un-toasted side after they come out of the broiler that way the bottom is already crisp when you lay it back on the baking sheet.

 

 Then place a few pieces of the chicken on top of that.

Then top that with some tomato slices …

and finally top that with a slice of fresh mozerella.

 

YUM… Just looking at these makes me want to eat one right now…

Pop your baking sheet with the tartines on it back in the broiler for another 3 to 5 minutes or until the chese is melted.

 If you like the cheese browned then you can do that too! Gives it a little crunch!

 

Now the most important and crucial step….NOW YOU EAT IT!

Make these and them come here and tell me what you think of this little tartine!
