Chicken, Pesto, & Provolone Panini Sandwiches

A Panini press isn’t necessary for these crusty, cheesy hot sandwiches. They can easily be made on the stove-top. Serve with a pasta salad.

Ingredients 

8 slices (4-inch x 5-inch x 1/2-inch) crusty artisan bread
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 tablespoons purchased basil pesto
4 slices (1 ounce each) provolone cheese
2 medium tomatoes, thinly sliced (1/8-inch)
1/2 Gold'n Plump® Deli Rotisserie Chicken - Original flavor, meat removed and thinly sliced (about 2 cups)
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Instructions 

Spread one side of each slice of bread with olive oil.

Turn bread slices over and top each of the 4 slices with 1 tablespoon pesto, 1 slice cheese, and 1/4th of tomato slices, chicken, and pepper. Cover each with 1 slice of remaining bread, olive oil side up.

Cook sandwiches either in a Panini grill for 3 to 4 minutes or two at a time in a large skillet over low heat. Place a heavy skillet on top of the sandwiches to press them down and cook for 5 minutes or until bottoms are browned and crispy. Turn sandwiches over, place the heavy skillet on top again, and cook for 5 more minutes or until browned, crispy, and heated through.
