10 MINS 


10 MINS


Serves 4

INGREDIENTS

300g cooked chicken breast, shredded
8 slices of wholemeal bread
4 tablespoons basil pesto
200g mozzarella cheese, grated
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
Butter, for spreading
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)

 


 

METHOD

1. Shred the cooked chicken breast, thinly slice the tomatoes, and grate the mozzarella cheese.

 

2. Lay out 4 slices of wholemeal bread. On each slice, spread a tablespoon of basil pesto. Divide the shredded chicken evenly over the pesto on each slice. Top with sliced tomatoes and a generous amount of grated mozzarella.

 

3. Place the remaining 4 slices of bread on top to create 4 sandwiches.

 

4. Lightly spread butter on the outer sides of each sandwich. This will help achieve a golden and crispy exterior during cooking.

 

5. Preheat a pan over medium heat. Once hot, place the assembled sandwiches in the pan. Cook for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side or until the bread is toasted, and the cheese has melted.

 

6. Season the hot pesto chicken toasties with salt and black pepper to taste. Garnish with fresh basil leaves if desired.

 

7. Remove the toasties from the pan, let them cool for a moment, and then cut each sandwich in half diagonally.

 

8. Serve the pesto chicken toasties immediately while they are warm and the cheese is gooey.

 



HANDY TIP

If you have a sandwich press, it's a convenient option for making these toasties. Ensure it's preheated, and cook according to the manufacturer's instructions for a perfectly pressed sandwich.

For an extra kick of flavour, add a sprinkle of red pepper flakes or a few slices of sun-dried tomatoes to the filling.

Customise with your favourite cheese blend or add a layer of sliced avocado for creaminess.
