Chicken Panini Recipe

Chicken Panini is a super easy, yummy, hot meal. We LOVE them our way, but there are endless ways to make them. Here is the recipe from our menu from this week (Jan 26th- Feb 1st).

Whole wheat bread
olive oil
shredded mozerella
feta cheese
roma tomatoes
garlic & herb chicken (skinless, boneless), sliced at an angle

I don't have an official panini machine, so I just go with my George Foreman grill. You can also use a skillet & just press another skillet on top.

I spread a teeny bit of the olive oil on one side of each piece of bread. Then make a sandwich with the rest of the ingredients. I only use a little feta, because it's strong & Corey just likes a little kick. Add a little mayo on the last piece of bread. Then press it on the George & it takes... ehhh... 5 minutes & it's perfectly grilled, cheese melted. Yumm! It's great with soup, chips, or salad (depending on your diet).

I also love to add basil & spinach, but I didn't have any fresh though.
You can do anything really. It's best to experiment with your favorite ingredients!

One great thing I love (not everyone does) is brie & chocolate. It's a great snack or dessert. I would use italian bread though, not whole wheat. A few slices of brie (without the rind, for me) & some chocolate chips. Talk about addicting!!!
