This Grilled Chicken, Pesto & Brie Ciabatta Sandwich is my all-time favourite sandwich! The flavours go so well together and it makes the perfect hearty and healthy lunch or dinner. The sandwich is composed or a soft and chewy ciabatta bun with a filling of light mayo, baby spinach, tomato, grilled chicken, melted brie and spinach pesto. It is a gourmet sandwich but also easy to make!
Tips for Making a Perfect Sandwich
Use organic chicken breast: Organic chicken has a superior flavour to regular chicken and will make the sandwich more flavourful.
Use freshly grilled chicken: This sandwich tastes superior when the grilled chicken is freshly made instead of made in advance and reheated.
Freshly make the pesto: The spinach pesto tastes best when it is freshly made and therefore should be made right before assembling the sandwich.
Serve warm: This Sandwich is best served warm. Serve the wrap immediately while the cheese is still melted and the chicken is warm.
Recipe Q & A
Q: Can I substitute the Roma tomato for another tomato variety?
A: Yes, you can substitute the Roma tomato for any large tomato variety.
Q: Can I substitute the baby spinach for regular spinach?
A: It is not recommended. Baby spinach has a sweeter flavour and more delicate texture than regular spinach and is more suited for this recipe.
Q: Can I reheat the sandwich?
A: The sandwich can be heated briefly in the microwave to warm. Do not heat it too long since this will wilt the spinach and cook the tomato.
