Southern Picnic Chicken BLT Panino


A Southern Fried Chicken breast served up with crispy bacon, garlic aioli, grilled green tomatoes, white cheddar cheese baby greens and a honey Dijon drizzle on foccacia bread!
Ingredients:

4 oz. Fried Chicken breast (Seasoned flour, Buttermilk, Panko crumbs)
Green Tomatoes (1 thick grilled)
Baby Greens (1/2 cup)
Dijon Glaze (1 oz.)
Garlic Aioli (1 1/2 TBLS)
4 foccacia square
3 Strips Bacon (Cooked crisp)
1 slice white cheddar cheese

Prep:
Pound Chicken out slightly so top of lobe is same thickness as bottom.
Set up standard breading station (Dry, wet, Dry) in pans
1. Seasoned flour, 2 Butter milk, 3. equal parts panko and seasoned flour.

Fry Chicken breast in skillet or deep fryer at approx 350 until done. Hold
Core and slice green tomatoes. 1 thick. Season with S & P toss in light olive oil and grill on flat grill 45 sec to 1 min per side. Then butterfly in . You want the tomato to maintain some texture.

All ingredients can be prepped ahead and held. I like to do the chicken Picnic style chilled. So the Panini can be assembled just before service and finished (pressed) on site.

Build:

Slice foccacia in half. Spread garlic aioli evenly on top and bottom.
Place fried chicken breast on bottom, top with grilled green tomatoes (2 slices) Season with S&P
Top with baby greens and drizzle with honey Dijon glaze .
Top with bacon and cheese. Top sand with foccacia.
Heat on Flat grill or Panini press both sides until toasted
