Panini Clubhouse with Crisp Prosciutto, Avocado and Cheese

You have to make this panini!!! I took this recipe from “The Best of Rose Reisman – 20 years of healthy recipes” by Rose Reisman.

I do not have a panini press so I use a large skillet and press down on the wrap with a smaller skillet.

Picture 2353

2 oz (60 g) sliced prosciutto
8 oz (250 g) boneless skinless chicken breast
2 Tbsp (30 ml) reduced fat mayonnaise
2 tsp (10 ml) lemon juice
1 tsp (5 ml) Dijon mustard
1/2 tsp (2.5 ml) crushed fresh garlic
Pinch of ground black pepper
4 large whole wheat tortillas
2/3 cup (160 ml) grated Parmesan or Swiss cheese
1/3 cup (80 ml) diced, seeded plum tomatoes
1/3 cup (80 ml) diced sweet onion
1/2 diced ripe avocado

1. Spray a nonstick skillet with cooking oil and place over medium heat. Sauté the prosciutto for 5 minutes or just until dry and beginning to crisp. Remove from the pan, cool slightly and crumble. Wipe the skillet and respray.
2. Working with one at a time, pound the chicken breasts between two sheets of waxed paper to an even 1/4-inch (6 mm) thickness. Sauté the chicken for 5 minutes, or just until cooked and no longer pink in the centre, turning halfway. Cool for 5 minutes, then dice.
3. Combine the mayonnaise, lemon juice, mustard, garlic and pepper in a small bowl and mix thoroughly. Spread evenly over the entire surface of the tortillas. Scatter the chicken, prosciutto, cheese, tomato, onion and avocado overtop. Fold in the sides of each tortilla and roll it up tightly.
4. Preheat a nonstick grill pan to hot and spray with cooking oil. Sear the rolls on both sides until browned, approximately 2 minutes per side. Slice in half before serving.

Make ahead – Make the panini early in the day. Cover and refrigerate and heat just before serving.

I treated myself to this wonderful sandwich today at lunch. This recipe was taken from Food and Drink magazine (compliments of the LCBO) Autumn 2007.

 

2 tbsp mayonnaise
2 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp finely diced red or green onion
1 tsp drained and rinsed capers, chopped
160g can salmon, drained well
1 tbsp fresh dill
3 tbsp spreadable cream cheese
2 of your favorite buns such as panini or focaccia or 4 slices of sourdough
Arugula leaves


1. Place mayo, lemon juice, red onion, and capers in a bowl. Stir. Using a fork, mix in salmon.
2. In a separate bowl, stir dill into cream cheese. Slice buns in half horizontally. Spread bottom half of each with cream cheese. Top with salmon mixture then Arugula. Top with other half of buns to make sandwiches.
