Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium bowl combine mayonnaise, vinegar and garlic. Add chicken and fennel and stir until well combined. Spoon chicken mixture evenly atop 4 of the bread slices, spreading to an even layer atop the bread. Top with arugula, pepper strips and cheese. Top with remaining bread slices.

  • Lightly coat an unheated panini griddle, covered indoor electric grill or large nonstick skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Preheat over medium heat or according to manufacturer's directions.

  • Place assembled sandwiches on griddle, grill or skillet, adding in batches if necessary. If using griddle or grill, close lid and grill for 2 to 3 minutes or until bread is toasted. (If using skillet, place a heavy saucepan or skillet on top of sandwiches. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until bottoms are toasted. Carefully remove saucepan or top skillet (it may be hot). Turn sandwiches; top again with the saucepan or skillet. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes more or until bread is toasted.)

  • Cut sandwiches in half and serve warm.
