Chicken, Roasted Red Pepper and Pesto Panini

Paninis are a fun twist to mix up a traditional sandwich, which can become monotonous and boring. There is something very satisfying about the delicious crunch combined with the melty cheese and delicious fillings of a panini!

A panini press came as a gift a couple of years ago. At the time I thought it was a peculiar gift choice, but the first time I used it I was hooked. What a delight!

If you do not have a panini press and are a sandwich lover, you should consider making the investment. The day my panini press goes kaput is the day that I will be ordering a replacement!

There are several paninis that I have grown to love, but Chicken, Roasted Red Pepper and Pesto is one of my all-time faves.  


  • Bread (such as bolero or ciabatta)
  • Pesto
  • Provolone cheese (or other good melting cheese such as mozzarella)
  • Roasted Red Bell Peppers, well drained
  • Rotisserie chicken, sliced


  1. Assemble sandwich as suited to personal taste and press to desired crispness.  
It is that easy!!!

Inspiration for this panini came from the Something Extra Magazine published by Raley's / Bel Air a few years ago.
