This is just a a really cool idea for some leftover chicken, and homemade cranberry sauce. Even for some leftover turkey after “Turkey Day” had arrived. Cute little Sammie with great flavor that is sure to please.
8 slice crusty bread. ( I used Tuscan
8 slices fresh mozzarella
8 tablespoons cranberry sauce ( 2 tablespoons for each panini)
4 cups leftover chicken chopped or shredded
1/2 cup roasted walnuts
Drizzle of olive oil.
On a med heat preheated stove top grill pan, brush all 8 slices of bread with olive oil. Put 1 slices down on grill pan, then 2 slices of fresh mozz, spoon 1 tablespoon of cran sauce, then chicken, walnuts and another spoonful of cran sauce and 2 more slices of mozz. Place top layer of bread . Take a large heavy skillet or cast iron skillet and place 2 heavy cans on top. Cook for 3 mins, turn Panini over and do the same thing for the other side. Do this for each panini. Place panini on cutting board, slice in half and serve.
Cooking time: approx 15 ( for all 4)
