If you don’t have a panini press, cook the sandwiches on a stovetop griddle or grill pan. To create the “pressed” sandwich effect, place a heavy skillet on the sandwiches as they cook.

Ingredients

Directions

  • Coat a panini press with cooking spray and preheat to medium-high. Combine the chicken and barbecue sauce in a large bowl and toss to coat the chicken.
  • Arrange 6 of the bread slices on a work surface. Top each slice with 1 slice of the Swiss cheese, red onion, chicken mixture, and the second slice of Swiss cheese. Top with the second slice of bread.
  • Place the sandwiches in the panini press and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, until the bread is golden brown and the cheese melts.
