Grilled Chicken and Swiss Panini

Grilled Chicken and Swiss Panini

Smoked turkey and ham make tasty substitutes for the smoked chicken in these pressed Italian sandwiches.

  • Yield: 2 sandwiches (serving size: 1 sandwich)

Ingredients

  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced smoked chicken breast
  • 2 none (3/4-ounce) slices reduced-fat, reduced-sodium Swiss cheese (such as Alpine Lace)
  • 4 none (0.5-ounce) slices very thin white bread
  • none Butter-flavored cooking spray

Preparation

Divide chicken and cheese evenly between 2 bread slices. Top with remaining bread slices.

Coat tops of sandwiches with cooking spray. Place sandwiches, coated sides down, in a grill pan or large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Coat tops of sandwiches with cooking spray. Place a piece of foil over sandwiches in pan; place a heavy skillet on top of foil to press sandwiches. Cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Turn sandwiches over; replace foil and heavy skillet. Cook 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Cut sandwiches in half, and serve immediately.

Note: We used a smaller skillet weighted with 2 canned goods to press the sandwiches, but a cast-iron skillet would also do the trick.
