Everyone in my family loves it. This is better than eating out.
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.
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.
Tried this the other night! Loved it, but I did make a few changes.. I didn't see the need for that 3rd piece of bread so I just used two slices of potato bread. Potato bread works great for paninis and is 99% fat free! I pounded the chicken breasts very thin, put a little bit of olive oil, dried oregano, and garlic salt on them. I grilled them on my panini press and then assembled with the dressings and cheese along with lettuce and sliced tomato; Then grilled for about 4 mins! Definitely making this again and again!!
