Chicken Artichoke Panini with Prosciutto and Swiss

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!
