Chicken Pesto Paninis
For the bread, you can utilize any sturdy bread. For the pesto, Classico makes a really strong jarred pesto and you only require 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of it on a sandwich, which lightens it up considerably. I don’t usually put cheese on mine, however I put a thin piece of mozzarella on my sweetheart’s turkey pesto paninis.

I’m not providing these a 5 only because I altered things up a lot but they were delish. I caramelized my onions and combined my pesto with herbed cream cheese. I then spread my pesto and cream cheese mix on both sides of the focaccia then I put my chicken, caramelized onions, and roasted red peppers on with the shredded cheese. Warmed this all up on the Forman and had a salad with tons of veggies and Balsamic Dressing on the side. Okay, Yum!
Very good! I didn’t have focaccia bread so pre-owned routine bread (the outside buttered) and grilled the sandwhiches on the stovetop utilizing a plate weighed down with a can to press the sandwhich together as it prepared.
This panini was excellent in taste and easy since of the already-made pesto. Just thing I would alter would be to utilize sliced chicken due to the fact that the diced chicken tended to make it messier to eat due to the fact that it kept falling out. VERY good though and will utilize once again.
I purchased a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to speed up preparation. The focaccia bread is terrific for this recipe.
It would be terrific if people would not modify the dish and tell how good it was (various dish!) It doesn’t let others know that THIS recipe is truly, truly great.
Next time i will omit the chicken entirely.
INCREDIBLE RECIPE. MADE THEM ON MY GEORGE FOREMAN GRILL. THANKS FOR A FANTASTIC RECIPE.
These are excellent but only foccocia bread will work. I attempted an alternative and it didn’t work.
Yummy alternative to the normal sandwich (love the focaccia bread and pesto combination). I customized this rather since I’m not a big fan of the peppers/onion combination. I substituted those components with fresh tomato slices leafy lettuce and a thin layer of olive oil mayo. I believe this is an excellent dish to adjust and tweak to your preference.
