The other ingredient is Basil...
When thinking of what I would make for this challenge I had few thoughts. One of my first thoughts was to make a drink of some sort (I am still going to do this) and I also thought of making a salad of some sort, but as I was making some basil chicken for my dinner.. this popped into my brain...
Apple Basil Chicken Panini
For this recipes I am going just going to give the ingredients, not the quantity as you can use as much or as little as you want.
Ingredients: Printable Recipe
Basil Chicken (recipe below)
Apply dijon mustard to the inside of each half of Ciabatta bun.
Apply chicken, slice apple, fresh basil and cheese.
Butter the outside of the buns.
Place in a panini maker or use a frying pan.
Cook per instructions of your panini make or grill until golden brown.
Cook's Note: I used a Gala apple as that is what I had, I think a Granny Smith apple would be good too as it would give some tartness to the sandwich. The Gala apple gave a sweetness to each bite.
1 lb chicken (I used boneless chicken thigh)
2 tbsp fresh basil chopped
1/4 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper
Pound chicken so that the pieces are approximately the same thickness (this makes it easier to cook)
Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste on each piece of chicken
Mix basil and mayonnaise together.
Apply basil mayo mixture to pieces of chicken and let marinate for at least 1/2 hour.
Apply small amount of oil to frying pan and fry chicken until brown or crispy. You can also bake the chicken in the oven -350 degrees until chicken is brown and cooked all the way through.
