For me this is panini with potential. I found the wine/vinegar/sugar syrup too sweet and by the time it cooked down it had a almost carmelized after taste. I ended up making more w/o the sugar and cooking it less, so that it was less syrupy but had a better flavor. I had left over grilled chicken which was great with the roasted red pepper and red onion. I dislike goat cheese so left that out, I had planned to sub fresh mozzarella but it had turned sour , so to keep it from being too dry I added some fresh pesto aioli, which turned out to be perfect with it. For bread I used baquette slices. I will try this again with a cheese substitute. Thank you Emmy sharing your recipe. Reviewed by a Chic Chef for ZWT4 Italy - Panini Challenge

This makes a delicious wonderful panini. I used artesian garlic bread. I used cream cheese because I didn't have any goat cheese. I followed the rest of ingredients per recipe. The sauce reduced very well and is a really great sauce. We will be making these again. Made for ZWT4 for the Cookin Cats.

This was an awesome sammie - so flavorful! I made one for my lunch today and loved everything! I used some pre-cooked seasoned chicken strips that I warmed in the pan before making the sauce. I halved the sauce to make just enough for the sandwich replacing the sugar with splenda and it was great! Although, like Kim127 mentioned, it didn't get syrupy - who cares, it was still great. I didn't have any ciabatta rolls, but used a warmed poppyseed and onion bagel instead. Made for ZWT4.

Yummy! I used cream cheese instead of goat cheese, as it was what I had on hand, and skipped the peppers. The sauce really made this sandwich!

Divine Sandwich!! I used an herb flavored goat cheese and that added a great flavor. I grilled the chicken breasts instead of on the stove and also sauteed the red onions a bit to soften them up. I put all the balsamic sauce items in a saucepan and reduced, but it never got syrupy, which may be due to not cooking the chicken in the same pan. I used a flat Italian loaf from the local bakery and pressed the sandwiches at the end on the stovetop. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.
