Cookbook:Chicken & Ricotta Paninis

Cookbook | Ingredients | Recipes

Tender, flavorful, chicken and creamy, smooth, ricotta cheese in a warm grilled sandwich is the perfect meat and cheese sandwich combination.


  • 1 1/4 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • Ricotta cheese
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • 8 (1/2 inch) slices white bread
  • Hot pepper sauce, to taste


  1. Spread slices of bread liberally with ricotta cheese. Toss chicken with hot sauce and spread on in a single layer evenly on each slice of bread. Top with another slice of bread.
  2. Heat a grill pan or a griddle over medium high heat. Meanwhile, brush sandwiches with extra-virgin olive oil. Place sandwiches on grill, working in batches if necessary, until browned on both sides and cheese is melted. Serve warm.
