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

Very tasty, but I felt the sandwich needed a little extra boost. After tasting the chicken filling, I also added a large tablespoonful of pesto. Used ciabatta and my panini press. Thanks.

I loved this with a few modifications...I used my panini maker to cook two boneless and skinless chicken breasts, which I had pounded to a universal thickness and seasoned with salt and pepper and Italian seasoning.

Next I assembled the sandwiches using fresh mozzarella slices rather than the shredded, so this eliminated the problem of falling ingredients. Otherwise, I used everything as listed and cooked the assembled sandwiches in the panini maker. Once cooked I added a few fresh basil leaves.

Made for photo tag, thanks for posting.
