Being a mother or a wife is a very tough job. You are in-charge of everything in the house. You have to look after your children and husband's needs. Doing the groceries and cleaning the house must be done on a regularly basis. The hardest part is planning for your meals everyday. This is critical because you have to be as creative as possible. You do not want to serve your family the same food every day of the week. It has to be different and attractive in order to get them to eat.

Normally, the kids are the ones that tend to be picky when it comes to food. If you still have little children, your recipes must be interesting and nutritious at the same. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it should be a healthy and nutritious meal. You need to give them something that has enough energy to last for the whole morning. One great suggestion for this is making a healthy and delightful panini recipe. One nice thing about this recipe, it cuts your usual cooking preparation in half and you will still have more time to bond with your family while eating.

Here is an easy-to-do Grilled Chicken Panini Recipe that will add variety to your usual breakfast meal.


• 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
• 8 slices of Italian bread
• 8 slices Mozzarella cheese
• 3 tablespoons olive oil
• 2 teaspoons fresh rosemary, chopped
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 1 tomato, sliced
• Italian dressing

• Set the griller to a medium-high heat temperature.
• Mix the chopped rosemary, garlic powder, salt and black pepper together.
• Brush the chicken with olive oil and add the mixed seasonings on it.
• Place a small amount of oil on the grill grate and cook the chicken for about 7 minutes. Wait for the juices to get clear and for the chicken to be well cooked before you remove it from the grill. Then allow it to cool for 5-10 minutes.
• Slice the chicken pieces about half an inch and sprinkle the pieces and bread with Italian dressing.
• Put the tomato, cheese and chicken on the bread. Brush the bread with olive oil and put it on the grill.
• Cook the panini until the cheese melts. Then remove from the grill.

To turn this meal into a 5 minute meal, cook your chicken ahead of time and freeze it cooked. When it's time to make your panini, place the cooked chicken in the microwave to defrost it before you place it into your Panini.

Pair your panini with fresh fruit juice or milk and your kids will enjoy a full-packed breakfast. You can also serve these delicious concoctions for lunch or dinner. Change the chicken to pork of fish if you want to be more experimental. It will then be a new recipe that your family will definitely crave. Just remember when planning a meal, try to be adventurous and innovative. Your family will thank you for it by cleaning off their plate.
