Looking for an Italian- style sandwich recipe? Then check out these creamy chicken paninis that are ready in just 30 minutes!
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
hard rolls (about 5x3 inches), split
slices red onion
large tomato, sliced
cup Caesar dressing
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (1 oz)
leaves romaine lettuce
Between pieces of plastic wrap or waxed paper, place each chicken breast smooth side down; gently pound with flat side of meat mallet or rolling pin until about 1/4 inch thick.
Spray 8- or 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken in skillet 10 to 15 minutes, turning once, until chicken is no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from skillet; keep warm.
In skillet, place rolls, cut sides down. Cook over medium heat about 2 minutes or until toasted. Place chicken on bottom halves of rolls. Top with onion, tomato, dressing, cheese, lettuce and tops of rolls.
For kid-friendly crispy chicken paninis, nix the boneless skinless chicken breasts and steps 1 and 2, and instead, heat frozen breaded chicken patties per package directions and continue with the recipe in step 3.
