A couple years ago I received a 5-in-1 Griddler for Christmas.  I had seen it advertised on television and decided it would be the perfect addition to my kitchen appliances.  Plus, it would allow me to get rid of a couple other appliances, creating more room in my (tiny) kitchen.  I love to use the grill for chicken, burgers, and hot dogs, and I often make pancakes on the griddle.  Until recently though, I had never used the griddler as a panini press.

I had a loaf of freshly baked Dill Pickle Bread on the counter and Mike and I needed a quick dinner.  I grilled a chicken breast and sliced it up.  I had also purchased a ball of fresh mozzarella cheese on a whim at the store.  Since I'd never purchased fresh cheese before, I wanted to use it in something that would really allow the flavor to shine through.  

This sandwich is simple, but it is packed with flavor.  The dill flavor of the bread is a delicious complement to the grilled chicken and melted cheese.  Mike and I both enjoyed this sandwich; it was easy to make and full of protein.  I know that now that we've created this sandwich, our panini press will be getting a lot more use!
