Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan, bring 8 cups water to a gentle simmer. Generously salt water. Add thyme, rosemary, bay leaves, and pepper. Add chicken and simmer until chicken registers 160 degrees on an instant-read thermometer. Remove from heat and let chicken cool in liquid. Store chicken in liquid, covered and refrigerated, until ready to use.

  • Preheat a sandwich press according to the manufacturer's instructions.

  • Remove chicken breast from poaching liquid and thinly slice; divide evenly among 4 slices of bread. Spread pesto on top of chicken; top with peppers and mozzarella. Sandwich with remaining 4 slices of bread and place on sandwich press. Close the lid and apply slight pressure; cook until bread is golden and cheese is melted, 5 to 8 minutes. If bread is sticking to the press, continue to cook and bread will unstick itself. If press is generating more heat from the bottom, flip the sandwich halfway through cooking.

  • Remove sandwich from press and cut in half before serving.
