Italian Chicken Panini
Get started!


1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

4 slices Italian peasant bread

2 tablespoons mayonnaise

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

8 (3/4-ounce) slices Land O Lakes® Italian Blend

6 ounces rotisserie chicken breast, skin removed, sliced 1/2 inch thick

8 ounces heirloom tomato, thinly sliced

1 cup arugula leaves

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Spread 1 tablespoon butter on one side of each slice bread. Turn 2 slices over; spread each with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise. Sprinkle mayonnaise with 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Top each slice seasoned bread with 2 slices cheese; divide chicken evenly between sandwiches. Layer half of tomato slices over each sandwich; top each with half of arugula, 2 slices cheese and remaining slice bread, butter-side up.

  2. STEP 2

    Place sandwich onto panini press; grill until bread is toasted and cheese is melted. Repeat with remaining sandwich.

Tip #1

If desired, a grill-style pan may be used instead of a panini press: Place sandwich into heated grill pan. Place a piece of parchment on top of sandwich, then use a heavy saucepan to press firmly down on sandwich. Cook over medium heat 3 minutes; turn sandwich over and cook 2-3 minutes or until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.
