packed fresh basil leaves
grated Romano cheese
ground black pepper
skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
creamy Caesar salad dressing
6 (1/4 inch thick) slices
Italian bread with sesame seeds (also known as Scali)
shredded iceberg lettuce
2 thin slices
In a word...FANTASTIC! I pounded the chicken thin and seasoned it with salt and pepper,used a flat bread and my indoor grill. Many flavors but nothing overpowers anything else. This will be a regular in my house.
Everyone in my family loves it. This is better than eating out.
The whole family loved it. We grilled the chicken, sliced it up and used chibata bread in a panini maker. We also added tomato in place of letuce and added black Forrest ham. Delicious.
Really yummy! I grilled the chicken breasts and melted the mozzarella on top of them--on the grill. Then, I put together the sandwiches. Thanks for the recipe. Great way to use the pesto I had left over from pasta.
Really good. I used my frozen pesto with ranch dressing (I didn't have caesar) and shredded mozarella cheese all on focaccia bread from my bread machine. Yummo! Perfect summer dinner.
Great Panini! We didn't use 3 slices of bread, just 2. Yum!
I used an already prepared basil pesto and these were really good! Very flavorful and easy to put together. I did marinate my chicken in ceasar dressing (regular, not creamy), prior to cooking them quickly on the george foreman grill.
Great sandwich! Thanks for sharing this delicious recipe. The pesto is so good! I used the Creamy Italian Dressing I from allrecipes.com because it is what I had on hand and I love it! I also used american cheese as I had it on hand, and I seasoned the chicken with salt and pepper before grilling, and I buttered the outside of the bread before grilling. I had to do this in a grill pan and it was still so good! Thanks again.
