I had some chicken breasts to use up today and really fancied some roasted veggies. One of my favourite sandwiches before dieting, was a ciabatta roll filled with grilled chicken, roasted veggies and mozzarella, which of course is not very Slimming World friendly. So today I came up with this recipe, which I have to say was delicious!!!
This recipe is gluten free, Slimming World (SP) and Weight Watchers friendly
