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

How to Make Roasted Chicken Panini

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**
