Next up………Last nights Chicken Panini Dinner!!!

 SO This is a Pioneer Woman Recipe and it was the perfect “I have the Monday Blues” dinner!!
First up you need to make a “sauce”……
You need to blend, chop, puree (whatever you choose) 1Part Pesto and a few Sun Dried tomatoes in oil, then add salt, pepper and a dash of lemon juice!!! (Just make the right amount for your family add more or less)
You will then put 1/2 of the mixture in a plastic baggie with your chicken breasts. Roughly 1 breast will make 2 panini’s! Then you need to refrigerate over night or few a few hours!
Then PW says to grill your chicken but I roasted mine in the oven on 350 for 20minutes, so either way works!

 Then take the other 1/2 of your mixture and stir in a dollop of mayo………yummy…..

 You will need to butter the outside of each piece of bread!!!! And after your chicken is done slice it up because assembly is next!

 Assembly time………. with the butter side down add 2 sliced of provolone to 1 side and the mixture spread on the other side. Then add as many roasted red peppers as you would like (yes, I used them in a can but if you want to be an overachiever roast your own) then and your chicken breast.

 And heat….I left mine in for about 4 minutes…you could also use a grill pan, turning your panini once!

 Here it is………delish!! Such a simple and yummy meal!! You should try it! I ate mine with a side of cold cottage cheese!

Let me know if you make this and if you want to check out the original version with much much better pictures head on over to the Pioneer Woman’s blog!
