Chicken Panini Sandwiches

A quick and easy sandwich with leftover chicken and store bought pesto!

This sandwich has a been a family favorite for a very long time! Kids can’t get enough of this and their friends too! Spread some pesto, sun dried tomatoes, cooked and sliced chicken and pepper jack cheese between two slices of bread and cook until golden brown.

If you do not own a large pan, then simply cook sandwiches 2 at a time in a 9-inch skillet.

Weighing down the sandwiches with a heavy pan is a classic panini technique that helps in pressing the sandwich resulting in a crsipy exterior.
