Chicken Spinach and Artichoke Paninis

2018年8月8日

Last weekend, I decided to dig through my cookbooks and Pinterest to find a new recipe to try.  When I ran across a new panini recipe, I knew this was “the one.”

Chicken Spinach and Artichoke Paninis

While I’ve eaten many paninis out and about, I’ve never made one at home.  I also thought it would be a nice challenge to grill up this panini without a panini iron.  A panini iron is one of those items in the kitchen that I just don’t think I need.  I don’t often say that… since I like to collect most kitchen appliances, but I really don’t see myself using a panini maker more than a few times a year.

But… what I did have was a seldom used George Foreman grill… and an amazing idea!

I was able to make this sandwich VERY easily using the George Foreman, and it was crispy and crunchy like I’d expect from a panini grill – – Brilliant!
