Green Chile & Chicken Panini

Back in my troubled eating days, I just loved to eat at Corner Bakery. For those of you who aren’t familiar with this chain bakery, it’s a casual place where you can grab a sandwich or pasta while enjoying some free wifi. It’s reasonably priced and never really packed so you can relax and stay as long as you want .. while carb-loading of course! One of my absolute favorite things to eat at Corner Bakery was their Green Chile & Chicken Panini. Crispy bread, tender chicken, flavorful green chiles, melty cheese — it was a whole lot of wonderful! So, like many other things on the Dukan Diet, if I wanted it enough, I knew I could make it happen. And, well, I wanted it pretty darn bad so here we are..

Green Chile & Chicken Panini

First, make the Savory Dukan Bread recipe found here. (note: cut bread into two slices)

Ingredients:

  • 2 slices Savory Dukan Bread
  • 1 chicken breast
  • 1/2 can whole green chiles
  • 2 tbs low fat mayo
  • low fat mozzarella/parmesan mix
  • salt & pepper
  • cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat grill on medium-high heat
  2. Filet chicken through the center to create two thin slices of chicken.
  3. Season chicken with salt and pepper and grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side or 4 minutes in the George Foreman Grill.
  4. Spread low fat mayo on Dukan bread slices. Spray opposing sides of bread with cooking spray.
  5. Pat green chiles down with a paper towel to dry.
  6. Stack on chicken breasts, 2 whole green chiles, and cheese between bread slices.
  7. Place sandwich in a panini press or George Foreman Grill for 1 minute.
