Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. Slice the buns in half crosswise and place bottom halves side by side into the prepared pan. Reserve 1 tablespoon of pesto in a small bowl.
  2. Mix the shredded chicken and the remaining pesto in a medium bowl to combine. Evenly layer over the bottom buns and top with mozzarella. Finish with the top halves of the buns.
  3. Whisk together the reserved pesto, butter and garlic powder. Brush the mixture evenly over the tops of the buns.
  4. Cover the pan tightly with foil and bake for 15-20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from the oven and serve warm.
