Get Dinner on the TableHere it is – my final post in the Get Dinner on the Table series. Hopefully you’ve gleaned some helpful new ideas, tips and recipes to make weeknight meals a little easier. Let me add one last dinner idea to the mix: Garlic Chicken Panini.

Garlic Chicken is more like a nickname for this sandwich. It’s full name should really be Garlic & Herb-Brined Chicken Breast Panini with Roasted Red Peppers, Marinated Artichokes, Swiss Cheese and Basil Garlic Mayonnaise on a Baguette. Truly a mouthful! It’s inspired by a sandwich they serve at a local chain I like called Champagne French Bakery Café.

As you might imagine from that ingredient list, it’s an incredibly savory, flavorful combination. Don’t worry – the garlic in these panini isn’t at all overwhelming (you can still plan to kiss your loved ones). If you have leftover chicken on hand you can always incorporate that and forego the brining (although the brined chicken breast is pretty amazing). Add a green salad and dinner is served.

This is definitely going to be on my list for next week! Every week I roast red and yellow peppers, and make homemade mayonnaise, so I can see this panini recipe being a favourite go-to for busy weeknights!
