My daughter received a Panini maker for her birthday, and we have been experimenting with various types of sandwiches for the past month and a half. Our favorite is an Italian Style Panini using John Soules Foods Italian Style Chicken Breast Strips.
John Soules Foods Italian Style Chicken Breast Strips can be found in the lunch meat and cheese section of a supermarket, ours were found at our local Kroger supermarket. The bag is plastic and contains eight ounces of fully cooked chicken breast strips with rib meat. They are seasoned with Italian spices, and no hormones or steroids are added.
The back of the bag gives recipes for making Grilled Italian Style Chicken Pasta and Tossed Green Salad with Chicken. The package says to heat to an internal temperature of 165 degrees, and this can be accomplished by cooking the chicken strips in the skillet, conventional oven or the microwave.
The package makes two and a half three ounce servings, and contains only 110 calories and 1 gram of fat per serving. There are zero grans of saturated and trans fats 50 mg cholesterol, 3 grams of carbohydrates, 490 mg sodium, 0 grams dietary fiber and sugar, and 20 grams of protein. A serving also provides 2% vitamin A, 2% calcium, 2% vitamin C, and 6% iron.
Our Panini Sandwiches
While John Soules Foods Italian Style Chicken Breast Strips can be kept refrigerated, you can also freeze them for a later time if you find them on sale. I like to stock up since these chicken strips taste amazing! We were making enough paninis to feed four people, and we didn’t think one eight ounce bag would be enough chicken, so we purchased two bags. As it turned out, one bag was plenty of chicken for our needs.
While these John Soules Foods Italian Style Chicken Breast Strips can be added to a variety of salads, casseroles, soups, and other dishes, they really helped make outstanding tasting paninis. We layered them on seasoned deli bread, added some spices, and layered Provolone cheese on top and the panini maker grilled them to perfection in a few minutes. John Soules Foods Italian Style Chicken Breast Strips are a product I will be looking for when I return home! I gladly recommend this product and give it a rating of five out of five stars.
