Chicken Panini with Kimchi Aioli
Submitted by: Chef Linda Anselmi
Break out a few extra napkins for this panini full of bold flavors.
8 slices Italian bread, or bread of choice
8 slices Muenster cheese
4 cups Grilled chicken breast, sliced
1 cup Fried onions
1 Roasted red pepper, divided into 4 servings
12 slices Bacon, cooked
Spread Kimchi Aioli on all 8 slices of bread. On 4 of the slices, top evenly with cheese, chicken, onions, red pepper, and bacon. Top with remaining bread.
If you have a panini press, preheat it. Lightly brush the outside of each sandwich with olive oil. Add sandwich to press and cook until golden and crisp, 3 to 5 minutes.
*If you do not own a press, preheat a skillet with butter or oil on medium low. Add your sandwich, then press a heavy pan on top to weigh it down. Cook until golden and crisp, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
