Chicken Panini

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Preheat an electric sandwich press, a covered indoor grill, a grill pan, or a 12-inch skillet. To assemble sandwiches, spread one side of each bread slice with the mayonnaise. Layer basil, chicken, and roasted sweet peppers on 4 of the bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices, mayonnaise sides down. Brush both sides of each sandwich with oil.
  2. Place sandwiches (half at a time, if necessary) in the sandwich press or indoor grill; cover and cook about 6 minutes or until bread is toasted. (If using a grill pan or skillet, place sandwiches on grill pan. Weight sandwiches down* and grill about 2 minutes or until bread is lightly toasted. Turn sandwiches over, weight down, and grill until remaining side is lightly toasted.) Makes 4 sandwiches.

Top evenly with 4 ounces deli-sliced pastrami and 2 ounces sliced provolone cheese. Add roll tops. Brush with olive oil and cook as directed above.

In a medium bowl, stir together two 7.1-ounce packages tuna (water pack), drained; one 15-ounce can cannellini (white kidney) beans, rinsed, drained, and slightly mashed; 1/4 cup mayonnaise or salad dressing; and 2 cloves garlic, minced.
