Like any other food blogger, I love me some free stuff, and the competitive side of me loves a good food contest as well! So if you can combine the two, you will surely get my attention. So when I saw that Saucy Mama was going to give you their product to make a quick and easy meal, and that if I was one of the first 25 blogger to sign up, I would win stuff to giveaway to my readers too. I jumped at the chance. Lucky for both of us, I was one of the first 25 bloggers to enter!
I don’t know about your house but even though its just P and I, we often want different things for dinner. And I’m not a fan of making two different dinners, so one of us will have to compromise. So I figured I would take this opportunity to take the same basic ingredients and make 2 different sandwiches in about 15 minutes.
Lime Chipotle Chicken and Parmesan Garlic Chicken Panini's
The basics -
1 rotisserie chicken
1 loaf of French bread, sliced in half and then into 6 inch pieces
Saucy Mama’s Lime Chipotle and Parmesan Garlic Marinades
The accessories – These are all to taste, so use as much or as little as you like.
Lime Chipotle – guacamole, fresh tomato slices, Chihuahua cheese
Parmesan Garlic – Sundried Tomatoes, Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheese
Preheat Panini Press to Medium High Heat. Remove the skin from the chicken and remove all of the meat. Shred the meat into bite size pieces. Divide the chicken into 2 bowls. Add 1 tablespoon of marinade for every 1/3 cup of chicken. Stir to combine.
Lime Chipotle Assembly -
Spread guacamole on one side of the sandwich and top with a tomato slice. Top with the chicken coated in Lime Chipotle Marinade. Cover with shredded Chihuahua cheese and place the top of the sandwich on and press down slightly.
Parmesan Garlic Assembly -
Chop desired amount of sundried tomatoes and mix into the Parmesan Garlic coated chicken mixture. Mound some of the chicken mixture onto the bottom of the sandwich and cover with mozzarella and parmesan cheese. Place the top of the sandwich on and press down slightly.
Finally we get to cook them -
Spray the Panini press with non stick spray and place the sandwiches on and press for 7-10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted. Remove from the press and let the sandwiches sit for a few minutes before slicing.
Now onto the Fun Part!!! The giveaway.
