One of the pieces of equipment that does live in a drawer in our house and gets used fairly frequently with growing boys is our panini press. We tend to get our chicken from our local butcher Andrew Gordon Butchery and Fine Foods nowadays, so I know it’s all good stuff. I buy the lighter mayonnaise and add some herbs to make it more interesting, and a favourite standby food is always a panini.
My Kenwood panini maker actually reminds me a lot of a George Foreman grill, and if I had one of those, I’d be tempted to try making paninis with one of those.
I often make my own bread, but in emergencies, it has been known to be a shop bought loaf, or even the ready made panini bread from Costco, which I’ve used for this chicken and mayonnaise panini.
We were out of much in the way of vegetables, and with only a sad lettuce in the salad drawer, it just had to be added for the health option.
