One of the only clean eating restaurants around here serves the most amazing chicken pesto paninis! Unfortunately it’s about and hour and a half away so we really don’t make it down there very often. So we decided to make up our own! You’ll be glad we did too. The taste is out of this world!
We are definite clean eaters so whenever we make any recipe we keep the ingredients as clean. For this one the basil is fresh from our organic garden, the nuts, seeds, cheese and chicken are all organic as well. The cheese and chicken we get at our local Costco and it’s actually a pretty good price for organic!
