Chicken, Mozzarella & Basic Panini

Once, I was able to get my daughter down to sleep. I was flipping the pages of my new March 2011 Parents Magazine. When on page 115, I found this recipe. It immediately got my taste buds flowing! Check this out….

I made my own alterations to the recipe as I usually do. Instead of using basil leaves, I made basil pesto. I just spread a thin layer on the bread like mayo.

Here’s how I make my basil pesto.
2 1/2 to 3 cups of fresh basil
2 cloves of garlic
1/2 cup of olive oil
pinch of salt
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese

Combine all in a food processor and mix until well blended.

This is a lot for sandwiches, but you can freeze leftover and put over pasta for another night! We will be making this again for sure!
