Chicken Bacon Ranch Panini

Recipe by Jessi Leigh
READY IN: 20mins




  • Season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, garlic powder, chili powder, red pepper, and the blackening seasoning.
  • Add 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil to a pan and cook the chicken breasts until cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Slice into strips or shred, and set aside.
  • Cook the bacon.
  • To assemble the sandwiches, spread a generous amount of mustard on one half of the bread. Spread a generous amount of ranch dressing on the other half. (Definitely be generous; when the sandwich cooks, these will turn into more of a "sauce.").
  • Arrange chicken, bacon slices, and cheese slices on the bottom half. Top with the top slice. Butter both sides of the bread generously, then grill in the panini maker. (If you do not have a panini maker, you can grill the sandwiches in a skillet, laying a heavy skillet on top of the sandwich to press it together. Turn to grill the other side in the same way.).
  • Slice in half and gobble it down immediately.
