Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Serve this panini to guests and people will think you picked these up at a fancy sandwich shop. They'll be very impressed with your cooking skills when they find out they're homemade. This roasted chicken panini is good, creamy and so easy to make.

Ingredients

1
roasted chicken - pre-cooked from the deli counter.
2-3 slice
Havarti cheese
1/2
avocado, peeled and sliced
4 slice
sweet French bread
2 tsp
butter, room temperature
4 Tbsp
mayonnaise, whatever kind you prefer
1/2 pt
coleslaw, homemade or from deli counter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat panini grill, butter the outside of the French bread slices. Then add mayo to the inside of them. If you want mustard, you can add that too. It has a creamier taste without it, to me.
2
Slice up one-half of an avocado. Separate your cheese, then start slicing chicken breast or dark meat (your preference) off the roasted chicken. Enough for 2 sandwiches.
3
Place chicken meat, cheese slices, and avocado on one side of bread, then top with the other slice.
4
Place the sandwiches in your panini grill for approx. 5 minutes, maybe less. Watch for the color of the toasting, or when cheese starts to melt. Add a side of coleslaw or fresh fruit. Enjoy!

**These sandwiches can be made in a skillet like making a grilled cheese sandwich if you don't have a panini grill**
