Chicken Panini with Provolone cheese and Pesto

Yet another Panini recipe from my new Panini grill :)..


3 to 4 oz Ciabatta bread 
2 tbsp of Pesto - recipe here
1 small chicken breast oven roasted or grilled
3 thin slices of Provolone
Olive oil for brushing


For Chicken

I got couple of breast pieces. I butterflied them, sprinkled with lemon juice, salt and some taco seasoning on both the sides. Topped them with chopped fresh cilantro leaves, placed them over a baking sheet and placed in the 375F preheated oven for 35 minutes.

For Chicken Panini

Turn on the Panini grill/Panini Press.

Slice open the bread. Apply the pesto on the spongy side of both the slices.
Lay one slice on the preparation board. Place the chicken on the bread slice. Top it off with the provolone cheese. Top it off with other slice of bread. Brush the top with olive oil.
Place the sandwich brushed side down on the grill. Now brush the other side with olive oil and close the panini press until the cheese is melted and the bread is toasted.
Serve it with a side of some cool beverage :)..


If you do not have panini press just follow the same procedure we did with grilled cheese sandwiches, but just make sure to have some weight on the sandwich while cooking.
