• Preheat oven to 200°C/180°C fan-forced. In a large bowl, combine chicken breast and red pesto. Season with salt and pepper and set aside. • In a large frying pan, heat a small drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. Cook chicken until browned, 2 minutes each side. Transfer to a lined oven tray and pour over any remaining pesto. • Bake until cooked through, 8-12 minutes. Set aside to rest.


• While chicken is baking, tear bake-at-home ciabatta (see ingredients) into small chunks. Finely chop garlic. • In a medium bowl, combine ciabatta, garlic and Italian herbs. Drizzle with olive oil and season. Toss to coat. Spread out on a second lined oven tray and bake until golden, 8-10 minutes.


• Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine vinegar, honey and a drizzle of olive oil. Season to taste. • Add deluxe salad mix, shaved Parmesan cheese (see ingredients) and croutons. Toss to coat.


• Slice red pesto chicken. Divide panzanella-style salad between plates and top with chicken. Spoon over any juices from the oven tray. • Serve with garlic aioli.
