Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes
- 4 Thick Slices of Bread
- 1 packed cups / ~250g Shredded Chicken
- 1/2 cup / 75g Basil Pesto
- 1.5 cups / 150g Mozzarella, shredded
- 8-12 Sun Dried Tomatoes (patted dry if necessary)
- 4 spreads of Butter
In a bowl, combine your chicken and pesto. Place to one side.
Place two slices of bread in a pan with the heat OFF. Spread with butter then flip over so both are butter side down.
Spread half your mozzarella, top with chicken pesto, then with your sun dried tomatoes, followed by the other half of your mozzarella, finished with a slice of bread. Spread butter on top and turn on the heat to a medium.
Fry each side until golden and crispy. The centre should be hot and the mozzarella should just begin to leak out the sides.
