Healthy Sandwich Time

Here is a healthy meal for us that made a New Year's Resolution to eat healthier in 2007. This recipe comes from the newest edition of Cooking with Paula Deen.

I love panini sandwiches. They are quick to make and taste oh so good.

Chicken Sandwich

Chicken Panini
Makes 4 servings

1-1/2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 teaspoon Greek seasoning blend
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 onion, thinly sliced
1/2 tomato, seeded and thinly sliced
4 slices mozzarella cheese
4 sandwich size loaves of ciabatta bread

Cut chicken breasts into thin slices. Sprinkle evenly with Greek seasoning.

In a medium skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken, and cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add bell pepper, onion, and tomato, and cook 5 minutes, or until tender.Preheat panini grill to high.

Slice ciabatta in half horizontally. Divide chicken mixture evenly over bottom halves of bread. Top each with a slice of cheese. Cover with tops of ciabatta.

Spray the grill with cooking spray. Place sandwiches on grill, and close grill lid, pressing down if needed. Grill panini until bread is crusty and browned, and cheese is melted (about 5 minutes). Serve immediately
