Grilled Chicken, Cheddar and Apple Panini

4 sandwiches
15 min

My favorite sandwich of all time is a panini. These grilled sandwiches are delish year round, not matter what goes between the bread.

With all that being said, my favorite panini combination is grilled chicken, cheddar and apple. The grilled flavors of the chicken with the comfort of the cheddar cheese, and the sweet crunch from the apple makes this combo the perfect panini trio.

A sandwich that can be made in minutes, thanks to my favorite and highly recommended panini press, this small kitchen appliance should be a staple in all kitchens. With a quick spray of non-stick spray and a quick heat-up, it's like - Presto Panini.

Paninis are great for a picnic, for lunch and even for dinner served with a green salad on the side. But above all, my recipe for grilled chicken, cheddar and apple panini is the best of the best.
