"I cheated and used deli chicken breast slices so I wouldn't have to turn on my oven. Turned out delicious anyways!"

"Loved the flavor of the chicken. We did indoors on a grill pan instead of the outdoor grill. Used pre-packaged mozzarella slices rather than fresh mozzarella."

"These were delicious!! The only thing I did differently was after I assembled the sandwiches I grilled them again instead of making the toast. My family went crazy over these!"

"I make paninis like this. Even better than the toasted bread. In a pinch I use the Carving Board turkey or chicken with bacon, the peppers and either the purchased pesto or some fresh basil leaves. Awesome flavor."
