Chicken Saltimbocca Panini

Monica Keleher


This panini is so flavorful and a great way to use left over chicken. If you don't have a panini press, don't worry you can either weight it down with a cast iron pan or a brick covered in aluminum foil. Heat through until cheese becomes melty and bread crisps outside! DELISH!!!!
Hope you like it as much as we do.
