      Wow! Perfect sandwich!! Used some BBQ chicken and some nice crusty french bread. Used George Foreman's grill. Thanks rick! :)

      This recipe was perfect! As sandwiches go they don't get any better than this. The flavors blended together beautifully. I used leftover grilled chicken (warmed to room temp before making the sandwich) and store-bought pesto. The store did not have French rolls, so I used a baguette and sliced it into 6 inch pieces for each sandwich. I used a non-stick skillet and weighed down the top of the panini by placing another skillet and two large cans on top. I think the only thing that could make this recipe better is to use homemade pesto, which I will definitely do next time. Thank you so much for posting this. This will become a regular in our house.
