Pesto Chicken Salad

Standard

This is really easy to make & has such good flavor! I had planned on making it with basil but my basil went bad before I could use it so I made it with cilantro.

I made my husband’s sandwich with ciabatta bread, but I used a flatbread to reduce carbs.

Recipe makes 7 servings
1 serving = 1/4 cup = 6 weight watchers points+ (does not include bread or wrap)
