Prep: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Sometimes, I am just at a loss for what to make at lunch time. If I don't have leftovers or sandwich stuff, it can be a real challenge to think of something quick and easy and not just have KD. Again. Here is a quick, easy one I rely on.
What you'll need:
- 375 g frozen stir fry veggies
- 375 g cooked chicken strips or chunks (you can buy packaged ones now)
- 4 whole wheat paninis
- 4 large lettuce leaves
- ranch dressing (or BBQ or pesto sauce)
- shredded marble cheese
- sandwich press or grill
Over medium heat, heat a bit of water in a nonstick pan. Pour in the frozen veggies. Cover with a lid for ~2 minutes to soften the veggies.
Uncover the pan, add the chicken and saute until the chicken is warmed through, and the veggies are tender (~5 minutes).
Meanwhile, preheat sandwich press or grill.
Spread ranch dressing on paninis, sprinkle with cheese and top with a lettuce leaf, and some of the veggies and chicken mixture.
Press the panini until the cheese is melted (~1-2 minutes).
