Basil Pesto Chicken Toastie

Makes 1 incredibly delicious toasted sandwich


  • 1 small chicken breast
  • 1 tsp dried mixed herbs
  • ┬╝ tsp garlic flakes
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 slices of sourdough bread
  • 1 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 6 slices low moisture mozzarella cheese
  • 4 sundried tomatoes, cut in half
  • 2 Tbsp Goldcrest Basil Pesto
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Drizzle chicken breast with olive oil and season with dried herbs, garlic and salt.
  2. Grill chicken until cooked through but nice and juicy.
  3. Set chicken aside to rest and then shred with two forks.
  4. Place shredded chicken in a bowl and add in the pesto. Mix.
  5. Spread butter onto one side of sourdough and flip.
  6. Spread 3 slices of mozzarella onto the piece of bread and top with the pesto chicken.
  7. Add on the sundried tomatoes and then the final layer of mozzarella.
  8. Top with the second piece of bread and butter it well.
  9. Place sandwich into a non-stick frying pan on a very low heat. Fry until deeply golden brown on both sides. (Top the frying pan with a lid or metal bowl during the cook to get maximum cheese meltiness!)
  10. Once the bread is well toasted and the cheese is gooey and delicious slice straight away and enjoy!
