FAST AND FURIOUS FRIDAY "Southwest Chicken Salad Panini"

Tomorrow is my Yard Sale, so tonight's meal will be light as we will be working all evening setting up for the sale.

I found this recipe from Served with a bag of gourmet chips and some sweet tea, it will be perfect.


2 cups finely chopped cooked chicken breasts
1-1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 Tbsp. MIRACLE WHIP Light Dressing
2 Tbsp. KRAFT Light Ranch Dressing
8 slices Italian bread
1 large tomato, cut into 8 thin slices
4 KRAFT cheese slices

HEAT panini grill to medium-high heat. Mix chicken, chili powder and dressings.

FILL bread slices with chicken mixture, tomatoes and cheese.

GRILL 3 to 5 min. or until cheese slices are melted and sandwiches are golden brown on both sides.

*You Don't Have a Panini Grill?
Heat grill pan or large skillet on medium heat. Cook sandwiches 3 to 5 min. on each side or until cheese is melted and sandwiches are golden brown on both sides, gently pressing down tops of sandwiches with spatula to flatten slightly as they cook.

Make Ahead Chicken salad can be prepared in advance. Store in airtight container in refrigerator up to 2 days. Use to assemble sandwiches just before cooking as directed.
