Cheesy Chicken–Avocado Panini

Cheesy Chicken–Avocado Panini
How often do you take advantage of that panini press you received from your wedding registry? Not nearly enough, I imagine. And there’s no reason to skip out when you can have a restaurant-worthy sandwich ready in about 15 minutes. Chicken, cheese, bacon, avocado… who could resist?
  • Serves: 2
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 4 slices thickly cut sourdough bread
  • 1–2 teaspoons mayonnaise
  • 4 slices Swiss, Monterey Jack, or pepper Jack cheese
  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cooked and sliced
  • 4 bacon slices, cooked
  • ½ avocado, sliced
  • Olive oil, for grilling

Directions

  1. Preheat a panini press or grill pan.
  2. Spread one slice of bread with mayonnaise.
  3. Layer 1 slice of cheese, half the chicken slices (or as many as you’d like), 2 slices of bacon, half the avocado slices, and top with another slice of cheese before adding the top slice of bread. Repeat for the second sandwich.
  4. Drizzle olive oil on both sides of the bread.
  5. Place the sandwiches on the panini press or grill pan and press until the bread is golden.
  6. If using a grill pan, flip the sandwiches after 2 minutes to grill the other sides.

Note:

To cook the chicken, place the breast on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
