Goat Cheese and Grilled Chicken Panini

This tasty panini recipe is written for those without a panini press. It is just as delicious as a standard panini, but without the special equipment. A flat, round, cast-iron pan, known as a comal, is traditionally used to make tortillas or to sear meat, but is perfect for making your own paninis.


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 slices Italian bread
  • 1 ounce goat cheese (any soft variety works)
  • 2 tablespoons basil
  • 2 tomato slices
  • 1 (4-ounce) grilled chicken breast
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat and melt butter.
  2. Brush the bread with melted butter, then place one slice of brushed bread on the skillet to toast.
  3. While the bread is toasting, spread it with goat cheese, sprinkle with basil, top with tomatoes, and finally place the chicken on top, followed by the other piece of bread.
  4. Flip the sandwich, toasting on both sides and using a metal spatula to compress so as to melt the cheese and meld the flavors.
  5. Cut in half and serve warm with fresh fruit or veggies.

Makes one panini.
