I put down five stars because I didn't want to leave a bad review on the recipe since I did not really make it. However, I just wanted to say.. 83 grams of fat FOR A SANDWICH?? Not sure if anyone looking at this recipe who has made it noticed that but that is really insane!!! I just wanted to put this review here so that if you didn't see the nutritional facts on the side of the recipe you might see it here!!
The chipotle was overpowering to me, but my husband liked it okay. I missed the caesar, chiptle and bacon bits together and used it on a spread. I also used one batch of it for 3 sandwiches, but it was still too much.
If you have a panini press, you absolutely need to make this! Here's what I did with mine, and they came out perfect: (1) Cooked chicken tenders on a skillet with minced garlic, salt, and pepper and until cooked through. (2) Chopped up the chicken using my Ninja chopper so it was shredded into small pieces. (3) Used Ken's Healthy Options Caesar Dressing. (4) Used reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese. (5) Used Hormel bacon bits. (6) Used Land-o-Lakes Light Butter. This still isn't the healthiest sandwich in the world, but if you cut the calories in a few easy no-brainer ways it doesn't hurt the flavor AT ALL. I wanted to take a new picture for this recipe to do it some justice but both paninis were gone before I had a chance!
very good flavor! but for more kick i mixed ranch dressing with chipole peppers in adobo sauce!
For those who don't have a panini press, did you know you can use your George Foreman grill? Works great.
yummy! made it when I didn't have sourdough bread or ceasar dressing (used rench with parmasean) but it was still great.
absolutly loved this sandwich. I probably only used a tablespoon of the dressing, and couldn't find the chipolte chile powder so just did a sprinkle of cayenne. Don't own a panini maker so just fried in a pan with another heavy pan on top to press it down. Will definatly make this again, thanks!
Best panini I have made so far!! Me and my husband love it! Popular lunch in our home.
