Blackberry Barbecue Chicken Panini

Ingredients

1 cup fresh blackberries
1/4 cup sweet chili sauce
1 tablespoon chipotle hot sauce
8 slices precooked bacon
1 small jalapeño pepper, thinly sliced
1 Deli chilled oven-roasted chicken, shredded
4 tablespoons spreadable butter-margarine blend
8 slices multigrain bread
4 slices Gouda (or Monterey Jack) cheese

Steps

  1. Combine berries, sweet chili sauce, and hot sauce in small saucepan on medium; cook 4–5 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until berries break down and sauce thickens. Mash berries with potato masher or back of wooden spoon, then set blackberry barbecue sauce aside to cool.
  2. Preheat two-sided tabletop grill following manufacturer instructions. Heat bacon following package instructions, then cut slices in half. Slice jalapeño (remove seeds and membrane if desired). Shred chicken (breast only, about 2 cups).
  3. Spread butter blend on one side of all bread slices, then place bread butter-side down on a flat surface. Divide chicken among 4 bread slices; top each with 2–3 jalapeño slices, 4 pieces of bacon, and 1 cheese slice. Spread 2 tablespoons blackberry barbecue sauce over remaining 4 bread slices, then place bread sauce-side down on top of cheese to assemble sandwiches.
  4. Transfer sandwiches to two-sided tabletop grill and close lid lightly; cook 3–5 minutes or until cheese has melted and chicken is hot. Serve.

Coconut-Berry Freeze

Ingredients

3 cups frozen mixed berries (such as blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, or strawberries)
3 medium ripe bananas
1/2 cup honey (or agave nectar)
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 (13.66-oz) cans coconut milk, divided
Plastic wrap

Steps

  1. Place in food processor bowl (or blender): berries, bananas, honey, vanilla, salt, and 1/2 cup coconut milk; pulse until combined and fruit is in small pieces. Pour in remaining coconut milk, while food processor is running slowly, until completely blended and mixture thickens.
  2. Pour mixture into large loaf pan and cover with plastic wrap (placing plastic directly over mixture to prevent ice crystals); freeze 2 hours (or up to 6 hours). Serve. (Makes 8 servings.)

Aprons Advice

  • Complete your meal with fresh salad blend, pita chips, and a Bakery Decadent dessert cake.
  • Our mixed berries are picked at the peak of their season, then frozen. Fresh berries can be used for the freeze recipe if you blend them with frozen bananas.
