    MarraMamba's Note:

    This takes some of my favorite flavors, basil and lemon, marries them with grilled chicken and melting cheese on a hot grilled bun. yum. I will post the chicken recipe on its own as well (you can use scaloppine too, I prefer the thicker cut) What I do is cook the chicken for dinner making extras and use the leftovers for the panini :)

      Extreme yumminess! This was so easy to prepare and satisfied that growing itch for a panini I was getting. I loved the flavors of the lemon, garlic and pesto. I can see this would be delicious as a panini or just as a chicken entree. Thank you so much!
