Happy Friday, y’all! I’m currently with my family, flying over the ocean somewhere on our way to Germany, but I’m so lucky today to have the talented Jaren from Diary of a Recipe Collector holding down the fort today!

Hello Five Heart Home readers!! I’m Jaren from Diary of a Recipe Collector, and I am so thrilled to be sharing a fabulous recipe with you all today. I love Samantha’s blog so much, and she always has the most gorgeous recipes! I couldn’t wait to share this Garlic Cream Grilled Chicken & Bacon Panini with all of you!

We are sandwich eaters in my family. Now I’m not talking about your regular lunch sandwich with a little turkey and cheese on it. I’m talking about a really gourmet-style sandwich piled high with fixings and served on bakery-style bread. I love coming up with new sandwich creations, and paninis have a special place in my heart. The first time I made one when my husband and I were first married, I was immediately sold on the whole concept of a grilled sandwich.

This particular panini came about after I made a Grilled Chicken & Bacon Pizza which is a really popular recipe on my blog. I love recreating recipes! Pretty much anything can be made into a sandwich.

Plus, there is no need for a panini press! Just press it down with another skillet, and you are good to go!Garlic Cream Grilled Chicken & Bacon Paninis ~ piled with thin slices of grilled chicken, crispy bacon, and Colby Jack cheese, spread with a garlic cream sauce, and grilled until golden brown | DiaryofaRecipeCollector.com for FiveHeartHome.com

 

Garlic Cream Grilled Chicken & Bacon Paninis

Yield: 4 sandwiches

Garlic Cream Grilled Chicken & Bacon Paninis

Garlic Cream Grilled Chicken & Bacon Paninis are piled with thin slices of grilled chicken, crispy bacon, and Colby Jack cheese, spread with a garlic cream sauce, and grilled until golden brown.

Ingredients

  • 3 grilled chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • 8 slices Colby Jack cheese (or 1 1/3 cups shredded)
  • 12 slices bacon, cooked
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (plus more for grilling paninis)
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • French bread loaf or Italian bread loaf, cut into 8 1-inch thick slices

Instructions

  1. MAKE GARLIC CREAM SAUCE:
  2. Heat olive oil and butter in a small sauce pan. Add garlic and saute over medium heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Add flour and stir for 1 minute. Lower heat to medium-low and add milk and stir to prevent lumps. Season with salt. Cook for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove from heat.
  3. ASSEMBLE SANDWICHES:
  4. Spread garlic cream sauce on each inside slice of bread. Top one side with grilled chicken, 3 slices of bacon, and 2 slices of cheese (or 1/3 cup of shredded cheese). Top with other slice of bread.
  5. GRILL SANDWICHES:
  6. Preheat a skillet over medium-high heat. Drizzle a little olive oil on one side of bread. Place that side down onto skillet. Press down using another skillet. Let cook until golden brown. Drizzle other side with olive oil. Flip it over, press down with other skillet, and grill that side until golden brown. Serve warm.
