Ingredients
1 pkg. PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® Frozen Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts, Individually Wrapped (3 lbs.)
1 large red bell pepper, seeded & quartered
1 medium red onion, sliced in 1/3 inch thick rounds
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup prepared pesto
1/4 cup Kalamata olives, pitted and finely chopped
1 loaf (16 ounces) focaccia bread (or 4 sandwich rolls)
1 Panini sandwich press, or heavy oven-proof skillet and brick
Instructions
1 Preheat grill to high. Brush chicken, bell pepper and red onion with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
2 Place chicken and vegetables on grill. Grill chicken 4-5 minutes per side until internal temperature is 170°F. Grill vegetables until tender-crisp, turning once or twice.
3 Meanwhile, combine pesto and olives in a small bowl. Slice focaccia into 4 pieces; cut each piece (or each roll) horizontally to make a sandwich. Spread pesto mixture on cut sides of focaccia.
4 Slice chicken crosswise 1/8-inch thick. Divide chicken, peppers, onion and cheese evenly between 4 sandwiches. Place top on sandwiches, pesto side down.
5 Return sandwiches to grill and reduce heat to medium. Place a heavy cast-iron skillet (or oven-proof skillet weighted with a brick) on top of sandwiches. Close grill lid. Grill 2-3 minutes until bread is crisp; remove skillet, turn sandwiches and repeat pressing with skillet. (May need to grill sandwiches 2 at a time to fit under pan.) Alternatively, press sandwiches in preheated panini grill or sandwich press. Serve warm.
