8 slices Italian peasant bread
2 tablespoons purchased basil pesto
1 deli rotisserie chicken
1 large tomato, sliced
1/4 cup sweet Peppadew pickled peppers, sliced, if desired
- Peppadew peppers are small sweet pickled red peppers. They are available in jars or often at the salad or olive bars in grocery stores. Mild pepperoncini or banana peppers can be substituted.
- If you don’t have a panini press, use a griddle, grill pan or skillet. You can press down on each sandwich with a spatula, or place a second heavy skillet on top of sandwiches to flatten them. Panini sandwiches typically are pressed so they are a little thinner than the usual toasted sandwiches.
