The panini sandwich is a quick lunch occasionally even eaten on the run.
Ingredients

soft-type goat cheese

2 oz, reduced-fat, herbed variety, at room temperature

roasted red peppers (packed in water)

2 Tbsp, finely chopped

capers

1 tsp, drained and finely chopped

black pepper

tsp, freshly ground, or to taste

wheat dinner roll(s)

4 item(s)

cooked skinless boneless chicken breast(s)

1½ cup(s), chopped, roasted, shredded

arugula

cup(s), 16 leaves

Instructions

  1. Combine the goat cheese, roasted pepper, capers, and ground pepper in a small bowl.
  2. Slice the rolls horizontally almost all the way through; spread open. Pull out some of the bread from the center, if desired. Spread the cheese mixture evenly on both sides of each of the rolls. Arrange the chicken and arugula evenly on the bottom halves of the rolls. Close the rolls. Serve at once or wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for up to 4 hours. Yields 1 sandwich per serving.
Notes
Sometimes served hot and other times cold, sometimes pressed and sometimes not, panini are always elegant.These are absolutely wonderful as is, but if you have a sandwich or panini press feel free to use it, and serve the sandwiches toasted and warm.
