French Onion Chicken Panini

Kim Biegacki


If you love french onion soup and grilled chicken lover I know your going to enjoy this combination. This was a creation of mine I made 2 years ago and thought I should go ahead and post it. Now, I must say that this panini is packing some flavor because of the french onions that were cooked in beef broth, brandy, thyme and rosemary. So, what I'm really saying is make the soup and then make these French Onion Chicken Panini's. You'll be glad you did.
-- Though I created this out of leftovers I now look forward to making the soup just to have the panini too!
