Who doesn’t love a good Grilled Chicken Sandwich? My husband is a lover of sandwiches, he could probably eat a sandwich for every meal. Me, I could take it or leave it. But, I must admit that I am becoming fan. Especially after making this Grilled Chicken Sandwich.

This ain’t your run of the mill Grilled Chicken Sandwich. This Grilled Chicken Sandwich is amped up with some homemade Chipotle Pepper Mayo and then thrown onto a panini press to smoosh all the yummy flavors together for one awesome bite! It is definitely going on my list of top panini recipes or sandwiches. 🙂 I hope you enjoy.
