Chicken and Avocado Panini


2 chicken breasts, pounded out to 1/2" thick

1 whole avocado, sliced

1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese

jalapeno mayo, as little or as much as you like

4 semi-thick slices ciabatta or bread of your choice

butter for the outside of the bread

panini grill


Heat the panini grill according to directions. 

Season the chicken with the seasoning of you choice. I used Adam's Reserve kicked up chicken.

Place chicken on hot grill, close and cook until no longer pink. Approx 8 minutes.

Remove the chicken from grill and set aside.

Butter the outside of the bread, start with the jalapeno mayo on the bottom next put the chicken, half of the avocado, half of the cheese and finish the with other slice of bread.

Repeat for the second sandwich.

Place on the hot panini grill, cover and cook until toasted to your liking. Approx 5 minutes, I gave it a good press or two to really smash it down.


NOTE: If you don't have a panini grill, you could easily do this in a pan/skillet using something heavy to press it down. For example, another pan or wrap a brick with heavy duty foil and that would work perfectly.
