  • Add the mozzarella and sun dried tomatoes.
  • Top with grilled chicken.



  • You can use a couple of slices of your favourite bread, a roll or a bagel, pita or wrap.
  • If you don't have any leftover grilled chicken, you can grill some fresh or shred up some leftover roast chicken.
  • You can use any pesto in the creamy sauce.
  • Swap the rocket for spinach or your favourite salad greens.
  • You can add fresh tomato and cucumber or some grilled peppers.
  • We used mozzarella, but you could use a strong cheddar or Swiss cheese instead.
  • You could put the sandwich in a panini press after you have made it.
