Gluten and Dairy Free Basil Pesto Chicken

Hello

One of the things I miss the most about having to be gluten free is great sandwiches! It can be difficult to get decent bread to make the sandwich at home and you don’t often see hot sandwiches on the menu suitable for coeliacs when eating out.

I put together this chicken pesto sandwich to use the last of the basil pesto I had made. I used the Schär panini rolls and Violife dairy free cheese.

Enjoy!

Hello

Another shortish post from me tonight as I still have one eye covered with a patch. I’ve been getting odd stares wearing my sunglasses in the rain to protect the injured eye!  Anyway I’m off to see a specialist consultant tomorrow so fingers crossed they’ll tell me I can ditch the eye patch.

Back to recipe chat now rather than me moaning about my EDS problems. I made this pesto over the Christmas holidays and then used it in a number of recipes which I’ll share with you on the coming weeks.

Hope you guys are having a good week so far.

Enjoy!
