We’ve got fresh tomatoes; we’ve got fresh peppers, some new cheese in the fridge and some chicken breasts. What shall we make?
Well, since we have a Panini grill, why not make some great fresh chicken breast Paninis? In addition we got some cute little purple cayenne peppers in an extra free seed packet called Cayenne Purple from Totally Tomatoes. These little plants seem to have done the best of any of our peppers are small but abundant, and simply terrific for salads, sandwiches and pizza toppings.
We also decided to make some low-fat home fries alongside the sandwiches by slicing a potato 1/8” thick, drizzling the griddle region with a little olive oil and then laying the potato slices on it. Top with a few more drops of oil so the potatoes won’t stick when you close the lid.
Then we took some thin sliced chicken breast (1/2 or 1/3 thickness) and put them on the oiled griddle in the same way and closed the press for both sides to cook. After a few minutes, turn the potatoes and breasts and cook until the potatoes are tender and the chicken cooked through.
Then, lay a slice of chicken breast on the bottom of a hamburger bun, top with a slice of fresh tomato, a slice of cheddar and 1 or two little cayenne slices or other small pepper slices. Close the bun and griddle until the cheese is melted. Serve at once with the potato slices.
