This sandwich raises the question, is it possible to overdo deliciousness? Enjoy Wisconsin Gorgonzola, Parmesan, grilled chicken breast, and arugula, smothered in walnut pesto.

COOKING DIRECTIONS

Make pesto: Place walnuts, garlic, Parmesan, and arugula in beaker of food processor or blender; pulse to chop. Drizzle in olive oil with machine running. Season with salt and pepper. (Pesto can be refrigerated for a day, or frozen.)

Heat grill over medium-high heat. Season chicken breasts with salt and pepper. Grill for about 5 minutes per side. Reserve on plate.

Heat large sauté pan over medium heat. Butter one side of each ciabatta slice. Place 4 slices, butter-side down in pan and top each with 1 tablespoon pesto, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, chicken breast, and 2 ounces Gorgonzola. Top each with another tablespoon of pesto and ciabatta slice, butter-side up. Grill to golden on both sides, turning sandwiches once.
