Last Friday we saw one of the restaurants make a roasted chicken panini with LOTS of fresh veggies and a roasted garlic sauce. So I knew that I had to try it. I wrote down the ingredients and figured it was worth a try. Although I did not love the sauce (others I shared my food with did) I LOVED the panini!
1 head of roasted garlic
one whole egg
a few drops of hot sauce (for me sriracha)
1 TBSP of lemon juice
2 TBSP ketchup
a splash of peperocini juice
I just buzzed them in my magic bullet until smooth. Although it definitely was interesting, the sauce was too strong of a flavor for me, my husband thought it was too spicy and my mom and sister loved it so try at your own risk ;)
I roasted two chickens because I was planning another type of chicken sandwich for later in the week and why not kill two birds with one stone ;) I took them out of the roaster, and picked off all of the meat. They made a good amount of broth during cooking so I strained it and put into a zip lock freezer bag because why waste something so wonderful!
Cut up toppings.
Assembled the yummyiness on some fresh whole wheat bread with a slice of Swiss cheese. I used a vinaigrette on mine since I wasn't a fan of the roasted garlic sauce and it was very good with the chicken and all the fresh veggies.
Then I SQUISHED my sandwich in George foreman grill and then enjoy the toasty goodness!
FYI The George Foreman grill is one of my all time FAVORITE kitchen appliances :)
What I would do differently next time: Skip the sauce and just use whatever salad dressing I have in my fridge or come up with something new to try next time.
