Three Cheese Spicy Chicken Panini
Serves: 2
  • ½ pound thinly sliced chicken
  • 1 cup sliced white mushrooms
  • 1 onion sliced
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. cumin
  • ¼ tsp. garlic salt
  • ¼ tsp. red cayenne pepper
  • 2 tbsp. brie cheese (cut in small cubes)
  • 1 oz. cheddar
  • 1 oz. jalapeno Havarti cheese
  • 2 tbsp. classic hummus
  • ½ avocado
  • 4 slices of wheat bread
  1. Prep all ingredients by chopping the mushrooms, onion, cheeses and chicken.
  2. Combine the garlic salt, cumin and red cayenne pepper in a small bowl and stir until well blended. Toss in a large bowl with sliced chicken and add to a skillet with 1 tbsp. olive oil.
  3. Cook chicken on a medium heat, 4-5minutes or until cooked through and remove to a plate.
  4. Add mushrooms and onions to two tbsp. melted butter in the same skillet and cook for about 5-7 minutes until tender and caramelized. Set aside.
  5. Heat Panini press, skillet (or mini George Foreman grill, if you are me) and begin to assemble the sandwiches.
  6. Spread hummus between both sandwiches (about a tbsp. of hummus each) and divide the remaining ingredients between the two sandwiches (mushroom and onion mixture, chicken, avocado and cheeses).
  7. Cook until cheese has melted and the bread is golden brown.
