Slow cooker pesto chicken sandwiches. Chicken with vegetables and greens cooked in a slow cooker and served as sandwiches.

It’s the one recipe that cures all of life’s problems, especially when things are busy. The slow cooker is the only way to make a succulent sandwich you can make ahead of time.⁣

What is the best way to keep your sandwich from getting soggy?

There are always a lot of different opinions when it comes to what is the best way to keep your sandwich from getting soggy. Some people say that you should put a napkin in between the bread and the filling, while others say that you should wrap it in a paper towel before storing it in an airtight container. The truth is, there is no one technique that will work for every person. The best way to keep your sandwich from getting soggy depends on which type of bread you use and how much moisture is in the air where you store it.

We should never put our sandwiches in plastic bags because they trap too much moisture and make them soggy very quickly. Instead, we should store them in an airtight container with a napkin or a paper towel.

How can I make my sandwich healthier?

A healthy sandwich is one that is packed with nutritious ingredients—no matter how you slice it. Here are some tips on how to make your favorite sandwich better for you.

1. Choose whole-wheat bread over white bread to get more fiber, which can help keep cholesterol levels in check.

2. Add vegetables like cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, or spinach for extra nutrients and fiber, or choose low-fat mayonnaise or hummus instead of full-fat mayonnaise to cut calories.

3. Use a slice of lean meat like turkey breast and only one slice of cheese for a lower calorie option than full-fat meats and cheeses.

What are some different types of bread to put on pesto chicken sandwiches?

There are many different types of bread that can be used to put on pesto chicken sandwiches.
