Leftover Chicken: Asian Panini

If you're returning to the blog from Wednesday's post, you'll remember that we did Asian-Style grilled chicken. If you had any leftovers (and you should have if you read my note/hint), you can do today's recipe! If you didn't do Wednesday's chicken, just make it specifically for this recipe - it'll just take a little longer (OK, a lot longer, but it's worth it).

  • 1 Asian-style grilled chicken breast from Wednesday's blog post
  • 8 slices hearty sandwich bread (whole wheat or sourdough would be nice)
  • 1/4 cup baby spinach, washed and dried
  • 1 sliced tomato
  • 2 ounces sliced Monterey Jack cheese

Distribute 1/4 of a sliced chicken breast over 4 slices of bread. Top with spinach, tomato, cheese, and remaining bread. Bake in a 300 degree oven or toaster oven for 3-5 minutes (or grill on a skillet or panini press) or until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Slice in half diagonally and serve. Makes 4 sandwiches.
