We made these sandwiches for dinner the other night and they were so good! I was so glad when we had leftovers. If you like caesar dressing you will really like this sandwich. This recipe makes four sandwiches.
As funny as it sounds, one of my favorite things to order at Johnny Carino’s (when they had it on the menu) was a chicken caesar panini. There’s something about a chicken caesar sandwich on crispy bread that really speaks to me. And makes me want to EAT. IT. ALL. I told my sister that I made these rockstar sandwiches for dinner and her response was, “Chicken caesar sandwiches remind me of you.” I love them!!
You know those days where you can’t wait to eat the leftovers of what you ate the night before? THIS is one of those recipes. You should have seen me at lunchtime yesterday. I could not wait to get the kids fed so I could make me a sandwich!
You can cook the chicken any way you like, but I recommend grilling it for this sandwich. It adds so much more awesome flavor that makes it taste like it came straight out of a restaurant. I feel so lucky that I got to be the one to take a bite out of this sandwich before taking this picture!
