Chicken Salad Panini

"Have any left over chicken that you don't know what to do with? How about trying this sandwich? The honey mustard dressing gives the chicken plenty of pizzazz, and the apples and pecans lend a lively crunch!"

  1. Bought our first Panini Grill this week [ Villaware] and used this recipe for our trial as it sounded sooo good..Did add approx. 1/8 cup of chopped red peppers to the recipe but kept everything else as stated with the exception of the White bread...We used 3" square Focaccia rolls split and brushed with butter then grilled untill done. Wonderful !...Will make again. Oh, yes we used leftover rotisserie chicken. WCJACK
  2. This was a delicious chicken sandwich!! Very tasty - loved the mix of mayo, Dijon mustard and honey!! As I was bringing it in my lunch, I didn't add a fresh apple, but used some dried apples I had. The sandwich was way better right off the gril - but I still loved it cold the next day in my lunch!! Used brown bread (personal preference) and light cheddar cheese. Thanks Juenessa for a winning recipe!!
