“Using store bought panini breads and cooked shredded chicken or ham makes this a very easy to put together lunch or supper dish. This is one of those recipes where you can add as much or as little of any ingredient.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 12-1 cup chicken (cooked & shredded) or 12-1 cup ham (cooked & shredded)

  • 14 red pepper (diced)
  • 14 yellow pepper (diced)
  • 14 green pepper (diced)
  • 1 -2 tomatoes (sliced)


  1. Slice panini horizontaly

  3. Cover one half of each panini with shredded chicken or ham.
  4. Top with other ingredients ending with tomatoes.
  5. Sprinkle with a little salt & freshly ground black pepper if desired.
  6. Place second half on top.
  7. Cook for approx 3-5mins in a preheated non stick grilled sandwich machine or press.
