Panini Time

Well, finally the Olympics are over and I am almost glad because it means I can get back to work without having one eye and one ear on the television. Mind you, because of the energy expelled I was able to lose 2 1/2 lbs. Yeah!

To make it easy, these chicken panini sandwiches have an Asian flavoured slaw to give the added crunch. Yum! This makes 2 sandwiches, so adjust ingredients accordingly if more people are with you.

  • 1 tsp. soy sauce
  •  2 tsp. rice vinegar
  •  1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  •  1 1/2 tsp. creamy peanut butter (yes, indeed)
  •  1/2 tsp. grated ginger, peeled
  •  1 tbsp. finely chopped Italian parsley
  •  1/4 tsp. sugar
  •  1 1/2 cups thinly sliced green cabbage
  •  1 medium carrot, grated
  •  2 Ciabatta rolls
  •  1 1/2 cups grilled teriyaki chicken, chopped

Heat panini press according to instructions for the brand you have.

Whisk together the soy sauce, vinegar, oil, peanut butter, ginger, parsley and sugar in a bowl until the sugar has dissolved.

Add the cabbage and grated carrot and stir to coat it all well.

Arrange the slaw on the bottom half of the ciabatta roll. Add the chopped chicken on top and put the top half of the bun on. Grill in the panini press for about 5-6 minutes until the roll is crisp and browned.

Serve immediately. There, I told you it was yummy!
