Pesto Chicken Panini

Pesto Chicken Panini

8 Slices Sourdough Bread, Buttered

1 Cup Pesto

8 Ounces Ricotta

1 1/2-2 Cup Parmesan Cheese

2 Tomatoes, Thinly Sliced

2 8oz Chicken Breasts, Cooked & Sliced


Combine Ricotta Cheese, pesto, and 1/2 parmesan cheese in a small bowl; set aside. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on the buttered side of each slice of sourdough bread and press down so cheese sticks. Place one slice of bread butter side down on a nonstick pan. Spread a thin layer of pesto mixture, top with sliced chicken (about 2 ounces), add three slices of tomato, and sprinkle evenly with parmesan cheese; top off the sandwich with the other slice of bread. Heat pan to medium heat and cook sandwiches 3-4 minutes on each side until the cheese has melted and the outside of the sanwich is golden brown. Slice and enjoy!
