  • 2 (6-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cooked
  • 1 -- (1-pound) ciabatta loaf
  • 1/2 cup homemade or store-bought pesto
  • 2 cups greens (such as spinach, arugula or watercress), stems removed
  • 4 slices cooked bacon
  • 2 roasted red peppers (either fresh or from a jar), sliced into strips
  • 1/2 pound fresh mozzarella, cut into ¼-inch slices


  1. Cut chicken on the bias into ¼-inch slices.
  2. Cut ciabatta loaf into 8 slices. Spread with pesto. Layer greens, chicken, bacon, red pepper strips and a cheese on top of bottom pieces. Top with bread tops. Press down to slightly flatten. 
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the panini and press down with a spatula. Cook until golden and crisp on the bottom, then flip and continue cooking until both sides are golden and crisp and the cheese is melted, about 10 minutes total.
