When one of the local cafes discontinued my favorite sandwich, I decided to make my own version at home. This is perfect for those hot summer nights. We cook everything on the grill and serve it with a big salad on the side. Yummy and healthy too!

Ingredients

1 pkg
thin chicken breast cutlets (4-5 pieces)
1 c
italian dressing
2 Tbsp
dijon or spicy brown mustard
1
loaf of italian bread (i use whole wheat)
1/2 c
honey mustard
8 slice
fresh mozzarella cheese
2 c
spring lettuce mix
2 large
tomatoes, sliced thin
1/4 c
olive oil, extra virgin

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a large freezer bag, combine chicken breasts, Italian dressing and dijon or brown mustard. Let marinate in fridge for 30 minutes to a hour.
2
Grill chicken over low heat about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until there are grill marks and chicken is white in the center.
3
While chicken is grilling, slice the Italian bread into two long pieces. Spread honey mustard liberally over each side.
4
Once chicken is cooked, begin assembling the sandwiches. Layer sliced mozzarella, then chicken breasts, then tomatoes and lettuce.
5
Place top of the bread on the sandwich and brush olive oil over the outside, both top and bottom.
6
Put sandwich on the grill and cover with aluminum foil. Place a large baking pan pan or skillet over the foil and press down to create the flat panini.
7
Once grill marks begin to appear, about 5-6 minutes, gently flip the sandwich over. Place the foil and pan/skillet over the top and grill for another 5-6 minutes.
8
Once the bread starts to become crispy and the cheese is melted, remove sandwich from grill and let cool for about 5 minutes.
9
Cut sandwich into thick slices (about 6-8 per loaf). Serve with your favorite salad.
