BBQ Chicken Panini

All the benefits of a BBQ Panini without using a real barbeque. It only takes a couple of veggies, cheese, chicken and a simple BBQ sauce to make this panini sandwich.

A freshly cooked BBQ chicken panini you won’t be disappointed with. Begin by mixing half a pack of roast chicken chunks with a class BBQ sauce – the dip kind, not the marinade – and layer it up with red pepper and onion before applying grated cheese. Then cook in the oven and you got a tasty BBQ treat.
