Updated October 28, 2010

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
  • 4 hard rolls (about 5x3 inches), split
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 1/3 cup Caesar dressing
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese (1 oz)
  • 4 leaves romaine lettuce

Steps

  • 1
    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.
  • 2
    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.
  • 3
    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.
