We don’t eat out often, but find our way to eat wherever we are.
We were out with Adam, Emily et famille last month, and they chose to go to District 45 in Lynn, MA.
Looking at the reduced menu they offered for brunch, I chose a panini, minus the bread. I have never actually had a panini, as they became popular after I had renounced gluten.
The combination of ingredients appealed to me. A flattened piece of chicken, topped with a slice of bacon, a slice of apple, covered in melted cheddar cheese.
Would you be surprised to hear that I wanted to recreate at home?
I did, using the ingredients we had at home. A large chicken breast, that I tried to butterfly. I ended up with 6 pieces.
We have Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon, nitrate and nitrite Free. 1/2 slice on each piece of chicken fit great. Granny Smith apple was sliced, not peeled. The apple was not precooked, as the crunch of the apple slice adds a nice bite. Top with white cheddar, which we buy at Aldi’s.
I am sure I will have better pictures the next time make this.
