A superior chicken 'burger'. I was inspired to make this after having something similar at the Good Food Show. Very colourful with fresh, zingy flavours. Eat with plenty of napkins.


Serves: 1

  • panini
  • chicken breast
  • pesto
  • 1 lime
  • beef tomato
  • mixed salad leaves
  • basil leaves
  • olive oil
  • any vegetables (e.g. carrot, pepper, mange tout, guacamole - made with avocado, a spoonful of mayo, a few drops of Tabasco and a spoonful of tomato salsa)
