Sourdough Chipotle Chicken Panini


* 2 slices sourdough bread
* 1/4 cup Caesar salad dressing
* 1 cooked chicken breast, diced
* 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
* 1 tablespoon bacon bits
* 1 teaspoon chipotle chile powder, or to taste
* 2 tablespoons softened butter


1. Preheat a panini press for medium-high heat.
2. mix chile powder and caesar dressing in a small bowl.
3. Spread one side of each piece of bread with the Caesar dressing. Place the chicken on top of the bottom slice, sprinkle with Cheddar cheese, bacon bits, and chipotle chile powder. Place the top piece of bread onto the sandwich, and butter the outsides with the softened butter.
3. Cook on the preheated grill until the bread is crispy and golden brown, and the inside of the sandwich is hot, about 5 minutes.

This awesome sandwich is so good, but as with all good things, there is bad. Not to be eaten by anyone who is trying to lose weight. It packs 1243 calories and a whopping 83 grams of fat according to the original version on allrecipes.
