Frontega panini (Panera Bread style)

Frontega Chicken Panini (à la Panera Bread)
This Panini tastes so close to the original it’s scary.

3-4 chicken breasts
2 cups chicken broth
3 tbsp. Liquid Smoke
3 tbsp. salt
Focaccia bread (I used tomato basil focaccia)
Mozzarella slices
Sliced tomatoes
Sliced red onion
Chopped basil (fresh)
Chipotle mayo (recipe follows)

1) Place chicken, broth, liquid smoke and salt in a slow cooker and cook on high for AT LEAST 4 hours!
2) Once the 4 hours are up, remove chicken from broth and “pull” apart
3) Cut focaccia bread in half, slice each half…
4) Smear chipotle mayo on the bottom, place cheese on top, sprinkle basil, add chicken, tomatoes and onions
5) Place the top half on the bottom and grill in a Panini press or sandwich maker until you see nice grill marks.
6) Cut each half in half…enjoy with chips!

Chipotle Mayo
½ cup mayo
1 can chipotle chilies in adobo sauce

In a food processor combine mayo, 1 tbsp. adobo sauce, 2 chilies and process till smooth, put in an airtight container and store in fridge.
