Chicken Pesto Panini
This is just a sandwich, but it turns out looking so fancy!
Salt and pepper (or your favorite all purpose seasoning)
Pesto (again, I recommend Classico brand)
Butter or margarine
Sun dried tomatoes packed in olive oil
Thickly sliced bread (I like sourdough or french bread)
Thaw your chicken breast partially. (It is easier to slice when kinda frozen, kinda thawed) Slice it horizontally so that it is in two thin layers. Cook chicken in olive oil in a skillet. Season with salt and pepper (or your favorite all purpose seasoning). Be positive it is fully cooked!!
LIGHTLY spread butter on one side of each of your bread slices (the pesto has olive oil in it, so you don't want it to be too greasy). Spread pesto on other side of both pieces of bread. Layer up your sandwich with chicken, cheese and sun dried tomatoes. Place in skillet or on George Foreman grill! Cook until golden brown.
