Best Chicken Panini

I have a local eatery who makes an amazing flatbread sandwich. This panini is based on their chicken pesto sandwich. I recommend pane turano, or you may use a sturdy sourdough.

5 sandwiches


  • 10 slices sourdough bread

  • 10 teaspoons butter

  • 1 (22 ounce) package grilled chicken strips

  • 1 (2.5 ounce) package precooked bacon

  • 1 (8 ounce) ball fresh mozzarella cheese, thinly sliced

  • 1 medium avocado, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 medium Roma tomato, sliced

  • 5 teaspoons fresh basil pesto


  1. Heat a panini grill on the highest setting. Brush 2 pieces of bread with butter. Assemble panini with chicken, bacon, and mozzarella. Lower panini press. Cook until bread is golden and cheese is melted, about 5 minutes.

  2. Carefully separate bread and add in some sliced avocado, tomato, and pesto. Repeat above steps for additional panini sandwiches.

  3. Reassemble sandwiches and cut in half. Serve immediately.
