For the past few months or so, my co-worker Donna and I have been doing demos together on the weekends at my local ShopRite. These next few weeks we are focusing on getting and staying healthy for the New Year. I wanted to use a few new products in the store to create this delicious and healthy panini. Everyone just loved it and the buzz is still going around the store about how good this sandwich was!
The products we used in the sandwich were Sabra Spreads and Brooklyn Bred Bistro Buns. Credit also goes to Karla in our Cheese Department for suggesting the best Provolone Cheese that brought this sandwich over the top!
You will need:
Extra Virgin Olive Oil or butter, softened
4 squares of Brooklyn Bred Bistro Buns
6 Tbsp. Sabra Spread Sea Salt and Cracked Black Pepper
1/2 lb. grilled chicken, (you can use Rotisserie Chicken) or Deli Chicken or Turkey
Slices of Imported Provolone Cheese (we used Auricchio)
Thinly sliced English cucumber
Marinated Roasted Red Peppers
Sliced Kalamata Olives
Thinly sliced red onion
- Preheat grill pan or panini press. We improvised at the store. We used a skillet and placed foil on the bottom of a heavy pot to press the sandwich. Brush olive oil or butter on one side of each Bistro Bun. On the other side of each square, spread a thin layer of Sabra Spread. Place buns hummus side up and layer on chicken, provolone cheese, cucumber, roasted peppers, kalamata olives, feta and red onion. Close with top pieces of bread with olive oil or butter sides facing up.
Place sandwich carefully onto hot grill pan butter side down. Grill for about 3-5 minutes, until toasted and grilled on the bottom. Flip and grill for an additional 3-5 minutes. Place a heavy pot or skillet on top of the sandwich to help press it together.
Cut each sandwich in half and serve warm.
