Chicken and Mozzarella Sandwich Loaf…

Happy Tuesday. Any fun plans for today?

Are you looking for something a little different for lunch? Something for lunch box ideas or picnics?

Todays I am sharing this Chicken and Mozzarella Sandwich Loaf recipe. How tasty!? Great to make ahead for a picnic and will definitely stand out from the crowd. Move over limp sarnies, the sandwich loaf has arrived!

Serves: 4-6

Preparation time: 15 minutes plus standing time

Cooking time: 0

How to make a Chicken and Mozzarella Sandwich Loaf:

You’ll need:

  • 1 Ciabatta style loaf
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 6-8 long Cos Leaves
  • 150g mozzarella, sliced
  • Jar roasted vegetables (Peppers, aubergines, courgettes etc)
  • 1 cooked chicken breast torn into pieces

What to do:

  1. Cut the top off the loaf approx. ΒΌ the way down and pull the soft bread out of the centre to make a bowl shape of the crust with a 2cm layer of bread inside.
  2. Spread the pesto in a thin layer all over the inside of the bread bowl then layer half of the Cos leaves over the bottom, then add a layer of mozzarella then the roast veg then the chicken. Repeat this till the bread bowl is full. End with a layer of Cos leaves.
  3. Replace the lid and tightly wrap the whole thing in cling film and balance a can on top to weigh it down. Leave to firm up for 1-4 hrs. Cut into slices to serve.

Note: dry the roast veg and mozzarella on kitchen roll and make sure you don’t use too much pesto to avoid the bread getting too soggy.
