Why This Recipe Works
A panino is a simple sandwich, most often filled with meat and cheese, that is pressed as it cooks to compact the ingredients. In our Chicken and Roasted Pepper Panini recipe, a mix of peppers, garlic, olives, and basil makes a quick and flavorful spread for chicken cutlets and provolone cheese. We used our large Dutch oven to press the sandwiches, but any large, heavy pan would work well. To make quick work of pitting the olives that give our Chicken and Roasted Pepper Panini sharp flavor, we placed each olive on a work surface and held the flat edge of a large knife over it. We hit the blade with a fist to smash the olive, then simply separated the pit from the olive meat with our fingers.
