Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough - Cooking and Recipes

It's possible to trade profitably on the Forex, the nearly $2 trillion worldwide currency exchange market. But the odds are against you, even more so if you don't prepare and plan your trades. According to a 2014 Bloomberg report, several analyses of retail Forex trading, including one by the National Futures Association (NFA), the industry's regulatory body, concluded that more than two out of three Forex traders lose money. This suggests that self-education and caution are recommended. Here are some approaches that may improve your odds of taking a profit. Prepare Before You Begin Trading Because the Forex market is highly leveraged -- as much as 50 to 1 -- it can have the same appeal as buying a lottery ticket: some small chance of making a killing. This, however, isn't trading; it's gambling, with the odds long against you. A better way of entering the Forex market is to carefully prepare. Beginning with a practice account is helpful and risk-free. While you're trading in your practice account, read the most frequently recommended Forex trading books, among them Currency Forecasting: A Guide to Fundamental and Technical Models of Exchange Rate Determination, by Michael R. Rosenberg is short, not too sweet and highly admired introduction to the Forex market. Forex Strategies: Best Forex Strategies for High Profits and Reduced Risk, by Matthew Maybury is an excellent introduction to Forex trading. The Little Book of Currency Trading: How to Make Big Profits in the World of Forex, by Kathy Lien is another concise introduction that has stood the test of time. All three are available on Amazon. Rosenberg's book, unfortunately, is pricey, but it's widely available in public libraries. "Trading in the Zone: Master the Market with Confidence, Discipline and a Winning Attitude," by Mark Douglas is another good book that's available on Amazon, and, again, somewhat pricey, although the Kindle edition is not. Use the information gained from your reading to plan your trades before plunging in. The more you change your plan, the more you end up in trouble and the less likely that elusive forex profit will end up in your pocket. Diversify and Limit Your Risks Two strategies that belong in every trader's arsenal are: Diversification: Traders who execute many small traders, particularly in different markets where the correlation between markets is low, have a better chance of making a profit. Putting all your money in one big trade is always a bad idea. Familiarize yourself with ways guaranteeing a profit on an already profitable order, such as a trailing stop, and of limiting losses using stop and limit orders. These strategies and more are covered in the recommended books. Novice traders often make the mistake of concentrating on how to win; it's even more important to understand how to limit your losses. Be Patient Forex traders, particularly beginners, are prone to getting nervous if a trade does not go their way immediately, or if the trade goes into a little profit they get itchy to pull the plug and walk away with a small profit that could have been a significant profit with little downside risk using appropriate risk reduction strategies. In "On Any Given Sunday," Al Pacino reminds us that "football is a game of inches." That's a winning attitude in the Forex market as well. Remember that you are going to win some trades and lose others. Take satisfaction in the accumulation of a few more wins than losses. Over time, that could make you rich!

Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough

Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough
You’re going to love this pesto chicken sandwich. Sourdough, toasted in olive oil and topped with grilled chicken, pesto, Swiss cheese, and fresh tomatoes. A perfect easy and attractive dinner for guests or a cozy night in.
We’ve hit week three of our April Hot Sandwiches series, and I’m going to be honest, while I LOVE the contents of hot sandwich month (my Easy Homemade Panini, Spicy Chicken Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese Sandwich, and Chipotle Turkey Panini are some of my favorite meals period), I am so glad that it is almost over. Sandwiches, it turns out, are surprisingly the absolute worst to photograph.
You might notice that there are only one and a half Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdoughs in these photos. That’s because I rage-ate the other half of one out of frustration in the middle of the photo shoot. If you’re going to throw an adult temper tantrum, I highly recommend doing it with one of these in your hands. It’s a delicious way to blow off a little steam. 
But on to the sandwich: I’m going to keep this one short and sweet because this here’s a sandwich that speaks for itself. In the hierarchy, of sandwiches, a Pesto Chicken Sandwich on Sourdough has to be near the top.
You’ve got bright and salty pesto slathered over toasty sourdough and piled high with perfectly grilled chicken, Swiss cheese, and tomatoes. Pretty much all the best things in life in one delicious sandwich.
This is one of my favorite dinners for guests, because it’s fantastically easy, looks beautiful, and tastes so darn good. It’s also generously sized, so no one’s leaving the table hungry, and it’s a perfect way to use up extra leftover pesto you have sitting around your kitchen!

Feed guests good food to bursting AND use up leftovers? Who’s the host with the most now?

Ingredients
  • 1 pound (about 2 small) boneless skinless chicken breasts pounded thin
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 8 slices sourdough bread
  • 1/4 cup pesto
  • Mayonnaise optional
  • 2 medium tomatoes sliced
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • Olive oil optional
Instructions
  1. Sprinkle both sides of your flattened chicken breasts with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  2. Heat an electric counter-top grill or large skillet over medium-high heat. If using a skillet, spray with cooking spray or coat with a little olive oil. Cook chicken breasts for 5 to 8 minutes per side, until an instant-read thermometer inserted into the centers of the breasts reads 165°Transfer chicken to a cutting board and allow to rest for 5 minutes before slicing into 1/2-inch wide strips. Wipe out your pan.
  3. Assemble sandwiches by spreading mayonnaise (if desireand about a tablespoon of pesto over the bread. Top with chicken, tomatoes, and cheese, and brush tops and bottoms of the sandwiches lightly with olive oil or a thin layer of mayonnaise to help them brown.
  4. Cook sandwiches over medium to medium high heat until first side is toasted and flip. The sandwiches are done when both sides are golden and the cheese is melted. If making in a skillet, you will probably only be able to fit two sandwiches at a time in the pan. Place cooked sandwiches on a plate in a warm oven while you repeat the process with the last two sandwiches to keep them warm.
Recipe Notes
  • Make Ahead Instructions: Chicken can be cooked up to two days in advance, but needs to be reheated before going on the sandwich because it won't heat through while toasting the bread. Everything else should be cut and assembled just before cooking.
  • Recipe For Two Instructions: Recipe halves cleanly.
  • Freezer Notes: This sandwich does not hold up well for freezing, but unused sourdough and any extra chicken can be stored in the freezer in air-tight containers for up four months.
