No Cooking Required - Chicken, Tomato & Cheese

My toastie making has become quite the office novelty. Instead of placing their frozen lunches in the microwave queue and wandering back to their desks, workmates have started to hang around to see what marvellous toastie creation I am making.

This week’s toastie was devised during one such toastie making session. A colleague and I debated whether or not cheese should have been added to my ham, tomato and mustard toastie.

We eventually came to the conclusion that cheese and heavy mustard was not a great paring, and a meat toastie like this should have one or the other. My colleague went on to say that ham, cheese and tomato makes a great toasted sandwich. He paused for a minute and said that he preferred chicken to ham. Thus today’s toastie was born.

Which luncheon meat do you prefer? Ham or chicken?

Chicken, Tomato & Cheese

Makes: 2 toasties

  • 100g cooked chicken
  • 4 tbsp. tomato, diced
  • 4 tbsp. cheddar cheese, grated
  • 4 slices of bread
  • butter (optional)

  1. Preheat the toastie maker and butter each of the four slices of bread (optional).
  2. Place one slice of bread, butter side down, onto the bottom grill plate.
  3. Spoon half of the mixture onto the centre of the bread.
  4. Place the top piece of bread on top of the mixture, butter side up.
  5. Repeat steps 3 to 5 for the other grill plate.
  6. Gently close the lid and allow to toast for approximately 3 minutes, or until the bread has browned sufficiently.


  1. Love your toasties! Add a little green chile and you've got a toastie chicken enchilada! :)

  2. Oooh! That sounds like a fantastic idea. I must try that. Thankyou!
