Chicken and Salsa Verde Panini

Chicken and Salsa Verde Panini

The salsa verde spread in is this tasty sandwich is olive-based rather than tomato-based. Garlic, lemon and capers add the kick in this non-spicy salsa, perfect with chicken.

Preparation Time5 min


  • 7 green olives, coarsely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons capers, drained
  • grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • pinch salt
  • freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 skinless, boneless roasted chicken breast halves, thinly sliced
  • 4 round or oblong sandwich rolls, split in halves


  1. On a chopping board, combine the green olives, garlic, capers and lemon zest. Chop finely. Transfer to a bowl.
  2. In a small jar combine the olive oil and lemon juice; shake until combined and pour over the olive mixture.
  3. Stir in the salt and pepper. Spread bottom halves of rolls with the salsa verde, leaving some of the juices in the bowl.
  4. Top with the slices of chicken breast. Brush the remaining juices over the inside of the top halves of the rolls; place on top of bottom halves and press down lightly. Cut into halves and serve.
