A grilled panini consisting of chicken, tomatoes, and cheese.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°; wash and pat dry the chicken breasts; put chicken breasts on a foil-lined baking tray.
  2. Rub each with a teaspoon of olive oil; season with salt and pepper; bake 12-15 minutes until the breasts are opaque and firm to the touch.
  3. Slicing across the breast, cut the chicken into 1/8 inch slices.
  4. Preheat a panini grill.
  5. Slice off the domed tops of the ciabatta rolls; the rolls should now be about 1 inch thick; split the rolls horizontally.
  6. Cover the bottom halves of the ciabatta with an even layer of sliced chicken; follow with a layer of oven-roasted tomatoes.
  7. Season with salt and pepper before adding chopped arugula.
  8. Give each a squeeze of lemon juice and then top with a layer of grated asiago.
  9. Cover the sandwiches with the tops of the ciabatta and place, two at a time, in the preheated grill.
  10. They are done when you can smell the cheese, about 3 minutes.
