I must say . . . I have a crush on my panini press. Some sort of leftover meat, a random assortment of condiments, cheese and like magic . . . a hot delicious dinner! Flat bread is a staple in our house for everything from falaffle to fantastic and quick mini pizzas! This time around, I decided to fold it over and grill it panini style. Some leftover homemade Caesar dressing, roasted peppers, and oregano added a flavorful punch to this quick and easy dinner. This recipe makes enough for four flat bread paninis- plenty to share!
- 4 pieces of flat bread
- 1 cooked chicken breast, diced
- 3 Tbsp. prepared Caesar dressing
- 1/4 c. kalamata olives, halved
- 1 roasted red bell pepper
- 4 marinated artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
- 4 slices provolone cheese
- 1 tsp. dried oregano
- 1/4 c. crumbled feta cheese
Heat panini press to high. In a small bowl, toss chopped chicken breast with Caesar dressing. Set out flat bread pieces and top each with one slice of provolone cheese. Divide chicken, bell pepper, artichoke hearts, and chopped olives amongst paninis and mound ingredients on top of the provolone slices. Sprinkle each panini with a little dried oregano and crumbled feta cheese. Fold each panini in half and place on heated panini press.
Cook paninis on the press for about 5-8 minute until the flat bread becomes toasty and the cheese melts. So quick and easy- it's a great week night family dinner with a little tomato soup or tzatziki sauce for dipping.
