Chicken Avocado Bacon Panini Sandwich with Homemade Ranch

This meal is NOT for the faint of heart and I will not try and figure out how many calories are in this sandwich.  I will however say how darn tasty it was – the combination of the flavors are just drool worthy.  If the sandwich itself wasn’t bad enough for me, I had to make the homemade ranch that I came across today on One Good Thing’s blog to dip the sandwich in.  I modified it a bit, reduced the mayonnaise by half and omitted the salt.  It was wicked and I will never buy ranch dressing ever again.


Ingredients for sandwich:


French bread

Rotisserie chicken meat



Apple cured bacon

Cheddar cheese


Fry up the bacon and layer everything into the bread.  Place the whole sandwich into a panini maker on high and grill until the cheese is melted.


Ingredients for ranch dressing:


1/2 cup sour cream

1/2 cup real mayonnaise

2 tablespoons minced chives

1/4 cup minced flat leaf parsley

2 cloves of garlic minced

1-2 tablespoons buttermilk


Smash the minced garlic up a bit and combine all the above ingredients in a small bowl and add buttermilk until desired consistency is reached.


6 relatively innocent looking ingredients….
