Pesto Chicken Tricolore Salad

We've taken the classic tricolore salad and made it main course-worthy. Butterflied chicken breasts are marinated in Sacla' Classic Basil Pesto and chargrilled to perfection. Serve with Mozzarella pearls, tossed in Sacla' Sun Dried Tomato Pesto, for a punchy lunch.

  1. Using a sharp knife, butterfly each chicken breast by cutting it almost in half horizontally, so that it opens up into one large, thin breast
  2. Score a few diagonal lines on both sides, then rub all over with the Sacla’ Classic Basil Pesto and the oil
  3. Set aside to marinate for a few minutes while you fire up the barbie or preheat a griddle pan or the grill
  4. Cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes each side, until charred in places and the chicken is cooked through
  5. Meanwhile, toss the mozzarella balls with the Sacla’ Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto
  6. Arrange the tomatoes and rocket on serving plates, then scatter over the mozzarella balls
  7. Top with the hot chicken, drizzle with the little oil and serve
