Let's Make a Meal: Grilled Chicken Panini


2 Skinless chicken breasts
Extra Virgin Olive Oil

4 Ciabatta Rolls

2 Oven roasted tomatoes
1 cup Arugula leaves roughly chopped
4 oz Asiago - grated


1. Grill or saute chicken breasts with garlic, olive oil and salt & pepper.

2. Slice tomatoes in medium-thick slices. Drizzle with olive oil, and season with salt & pepper to taste. Roast in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

3. Preheat a panini grill.

4. Slice the chicken breasts into fajita/stir fry size pieces.

4. Slice off the domed tops of the ciabatta rolls and reserve for another use. The rolls should now be about 1 inch thick. Split the rolls horizontally.

5. Drizzle some olive oil over the bottom half of each roll. Follow with 3-4 slices of chicken per sandwich. Top the chicken with coarsely chopped arugula. Cover that with about 3 tomato slices. Finish with 2-3 slices of Asiago cheese.

6. In the hot panini grill - grill the sandwiches for about 3 minutes until the bread is lightly toasted and the cheese has just begun to melt. Cut each in half and serve warm.
