Chicken, Apple & Raspberry Panini Recipe

by on February 12, 2008

Raspberries on chicken panini?? It’s far from traditional, but the unexpected sweetness of the raspberry preserves on this sandwich provide just the right complement to the saltiness of the asiago cheese and rotisserie chicken and the tartness of Granny Smith apples.

4 servings


1 rotisserie chicken
1 Granny Smith apple, cored and sliced into 16 pieces
1 lemon
4 slices asiago cheese
4 teaspoons raspberry preserves
8 slices sourdough bread
2 tablespoons olive oil


Remove chicken meat from the bone, pulling apart in pieces. Set aside. Squeeze lemon juice over apple slices to prevent browning.

Heat panini grill to 350 degrees.

Build each sandwich one at a time. Spread 1 teaspoon of raspberry preserves on a slice of bread. Pile about 1/4 of the chicken on top of the preserves. Lay 4 apple slices on top of the chicken. Add one slice of cheese on top of the apples. Top with a second slice of bread. Brush olive oil on top of the sandwich.

Grill 5-6 minutes until the outside of the sandwich is crispy and golden and the cheese is melted. Serve hot.
