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!

How to Make Honey Mustard Chicken Panini

Step-by-Step

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