Chicken mozzarella burgers

2 chicken breasts, sliced in half
2tbs olive oil
1tbs lemon juice
salt and pepper
225g buffalo mozzarella
whole egg mayonnaise to taste
pesto to taste
shaved parmesan
mixed lettuce leaves
4 burger buns

Marinate chicken in oil, lemon and salt and pepper in a non-metallic bowl for 5mins.
Brush burger buns with oil and grill for 1min until browned. Set aside.
Grill chicken for 2mins, or fry in pan til ready.
Spread mayonnaise on one side of the bun, top with some lettuce and then chicken breasts.
Dollop some pesto and then top with mozzarella, more pesto, more lettuce and shaved parmesan. Serves 4.

ease: 4/5.
You only have to cook chicken and toast bread, the rest is just assembling.
prep time: 5mins to get ingredients out and marinate chicken.
cooking time: 1omins to cook chicken in fry pan.
Total: 15mins. Super quick.
taste: 4/5. These were super tasty, I smothered mine in mayonnaise and pesto. The buffalo mozzarella was really soft (and expensive) but tastier than regular mozzarella.

would I make it again: Yes. They were really easy to make, hard to stuff up. And I was only in the kitchen for 15mins, which means even on days when you can't be arsed, this is an option.
