Chicken, Mozzarella and Spinach Panini

So the kids went back to school last week and to ease the pain of an empty house, I bought a Panini Press. Yes, I did. I have lusted after it for some time now and my husband encouraged me to stop window shopping and just go for it. As my family explore the wonderful world of grilled sandwiches; I will try my best to share some recipes with you.

To christen our new kitchen gadget, I went to Walmart to pick up a few items for a quick recipe complete with Summer Refreshments, hence today’s beautiful creation – Easy Chicken, Mozzarella and Spinach Panini with Mangotini Iced Tea.  I bought the Lipton 100 count tea bags and a Hellmann’s Mayonnaise to create a perfect pairing for my easy dinner or lunch menu idea.

I chose everyday ingredients that are readily available to make life easy. Red Onion, Tomatoes, Spinach, Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and Pre-seasoned Chicken (chopped Jalapeño is optional)

    the instructions say: Arrange the mozzarella cheese, chicken, spinach, tomatoes, and onion….
    I don’t see tomatoes or onions in the ingredient list? Are they fresh tomatoes? Are the onions raw?
