Served with a side salad these cheesy chicken toasts make a really appetising meal.
Ingredients: 4 thin slices crusty bread; 3 tbsp/45ml olive oil; 4 boned and skinned chicken thighs; 1 courgette, thinly sliced; 1 tbsp/15ml pesto; 2oz/50g black olives; 5oz/150g mozzarella cheese, sliced; salt and pepper
- Place the bread on a foil lined grill rack and drizzle with 1 tbsp/15ml of the olive oil. Thinly slice the chicken.
- Heat remaining oil in a frying pan. Add chicken and fry, stirring for 3-4 minutes, until cooked through. Add courgettes and fry for a further 1 minute. Stir in the pesto and olives. Spoon mixture over the toasts and top with the cheese. Season to taste and cook under a moderate grill for 2-3 minutes until the cheese melts. Serve immediately with a side salad.
- Tip: If you don’t like olives, you could stir halved tomatoes, diced peppers or sauteed mushrooms into the chicken mixture instead.
