Another excellent sandwich inspired by my absolute favorite sammy at Paradise Bakery. So sorry for those of you who aren’t fortunate enough to have one close by. However, I like my version even better, and it’s so easy!

If you don’t have a fancy panini press or grill pan like I used in my pictures, no worries, just use a skillet like you would a grill cheese, but use a medium weighted pan to press on top of the sandwich while the bottom half cooks. Flip and do the same for the 2nd side.

There’s just something about a hot, crispy, cheesy sandwich that is so tempting. I could eat this any day of the week and be so happy! Give it a try and enjoy it with a good bowl of soup or salad! Have a great week everyone!

I used those ciabatta rolls again that I find at Walmart, but any crusty roll will work fine.

Chicken Artichoke Panini with Prosciutto and Swiss

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 ciabatta roll or other crusty roll of choice, split
2 slices swiss cheese
1-2 slices prosciutto or crisped bacon if you’d prefer
4 slices deli chicken breast meat
1/4 Cup artichoke hearts marinated in olive oil, drained
1/2 Cup packed fresh baby arugula leaves
2 slices roma tomato

1. Prehat grill pan, panini press or large skillet to medium high heat. Brush both sides of roll with extra virgin olive oil. Layer bottom roll with 1 slice of swiss cheese, prosciutto, chicken breast slices, artichoke hearts, arugula leaves, tomatoes and 2nd slice of swiss. Close with top roll and place onto grill pan. Place a weighted pan on top to press sandwich down and form grill marks. Cook for 2-3 minutes each side or until browned, crisped and cheese has melted. Remove, cut in half if desired and enjoy!
