Roast Chicken and Spinach Panini

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year! We’ve been quite busy in our family over the holidays.

This recipe was created for Babble’s family Kitchen.



Roast Chicken and Spinach Panini


1 ciabatta roll, or other sturdy bread
sliced tomato
baby spinach leaves
sliced onion
thickly sliced roast chicken (pre-cooked from the deli counter)
2 slices mozzarella cheese
basil pesto
olive oil
salt and pepper


Cut ciabatta roll in half. Brush the top and bottom of the roll with a little olive oil. Spread each inside of the roll with a little basil pesto. Add cheese first, then chicken, tomato, salt and pepper, onion, spinach and the other slice of cheese. Add the top of the roll.

Grill sandwich in panini press until browned. Serve with soup or a simple salad.

If you don’t have a panini press, see this post at Panini Happy for alternative ways of cooking a panini without a panini press.
