I loved this!!! I made them in my panini press, and the mozzarella melted enough to hold the ingredients together. Made for CQ 2014.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 23 cup rotisserie-cooked chicken, shredded (not cold)
  • 23 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded

  • 3 tablespoons sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

  1. Stir together chicken, mozzarella, olives, sun dried tomatoes, pepperoncini, and roasted red peppers.
  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray (such as Pam) and place over medium-high heat. Divide Parmesan into 4 small piles (about 1 tablespoon each) spreading slightly. Top with 4 slices of bread.
