I know that I say this about many of the meals that I have posted on our blog, but the Chicken Salad Panini is one of our all time favorite meals! I guess we just love to eat so all our meals are our favorite! We have been eating this meal for many years and it is still requested quite often.
This one is so easy and fast to make. It is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. It would even be great if you had to take it to go! Portable dinners are pretty handy sometimes!
Chicken Salad Panini
Adapted from here
Makes about 4 sandwiches
- 2 1/2 cups cooked, shredded chicken breasts
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 2 Tbsp. crumbled bacon (or you can use the packaged real bacon bits)
- 1 green onion, sliced
- 2 Tbsp. ranch dressing
- 8 slices whole wheat or multi-grain bread
- 4 slices of sharp cheddar cheese
Heat up skillet or panini press on medium heat. Mix the chicken, mayonnaise, bacon, green onion, and ranch dressing. Divide chicken mixture between 4 pieces of the bread. Add a slice of cheese to each sandwich and then top with piece of bread on each.
Heat on skillet or panini press until cheese is melted and sandwich is heated through.
Serve with fresh fruit and/or homemade fries!
I hope you love these sandwiches! They are fantastic!
