I broke out the panini maker once again! We are having so much fun making them that I have actually reorganized a shelf so I can get the panini maker out simpler (it was such a pain before).
The Buffalo Chicken Panini I’ve made didn’t use leftovers, however it certainly might if you had some leftover chicken and cheese. I in fact didn’t have any of the components in the house, so I had to go shopping. First stop was to Smith’s (Kroger affiliate shop), which I like to stop into about once a week for items that they have on sale (plus I get points for discounts on my gas when I shop there). I got fresh chicken breasts (on sale), cayenne hot sauce, sourdough bread, green onions, blue cheese, and colby jack cheese. Something they didn’t have was Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil which I wanted to utilize for both preparing the chicken and for brushing on the bread.
When I make buffalo wings, I normally add a little melted butter to the hot sauce that I toss the wings in. Instead of going that route, I utilized the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil to help to consider that buttery taste to the Buffalo Chicken Panini. I was able to purchase it at Walmart, which I have actually learned is the only place that carries it. I found it up on the leading shelf near the other olive oils. My Walmart sold it for $4.98
When you have all your active ingredients, you are prepared to get hectic on your supper. Or lunch. Or midnight treat. It was supper for us, but who am I to evaluate? I think in equivalent meal opportunities for sandwiches. Heat up a bit of the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil in a frying pan and cook your chicken breasts up until golden brown and cook through.
Once the chicken is done cooking, set it aside to cool a bit. When cool enough to manage, cut your chicken into little bite-sized pieces. Toss it with your cayenne hot sauce, and after that blue cheese crumbles and chopped green onions.
Start heating up your panini maker according to producer guidelines. Then, brush one side of each slice of bread with a little the Star Butter Flavored Olive Oil.
Now you are all set to barbecue your sandwich! Lay one piece of bread (with the olive oil side down) on the hot panini grill. Top with some shredded colby jack cheese, then some of the buffalo chicken filling, more shredded colby jack cheese, and lastly top with another piece of bread, with the olive oil side dealing with up. Grill your sandwich till hot, crusty … and DELICIOUS!
That’s how easy it is. The hardest part for me was making these for a family of six and my panini maker only have room for two at a time. Woe is me, right? We’ll manage somehow. We combined our panini with some chips and a veggie tray, which I likewise pick up on sale at Smith’s.
