What might you think does this have to do with a chicken panini? Well... one of these gifts was an awesome panini maker! Not only do I use it to make panini's, but I cook chicken and veggies on it too.

So last night I was at the store deciding what to make for dinner and I decided a panini was the way to go. For this sandwich I used thinly sliced chicken breast from our local deli, a red pepper, a red onion, an avocado, a smidge of ranch, swiss cheese and sliced italian bread.

First I plugged in the panini maker so it could heat up, then I chopped up the veggies!

Next I threw the sliced red peppers in a pan on the stove with a little EVOO, extra virgin olive oil. I flipped the slices until I could see the skin start to get cooked (my quick version of roasting them).
