      This is the first Panini I ordered from Panera’s Hot Panini menu. I chose to try this Panini first because it sounded like a pizza pie from the description of ingredients. It has smoked pulled chicken and melted mozzarella with tomatoes, onions, and fresh basil. It sounds like a pizza so far, right? Oh, and there’s chipotle mayonnaise. That’s where the pizza imagery is broken. Also , it comes on a focaccia, which I’ve had before and


      When I picked up this Panini at the counter, I was instantly surprised at how thick the sandwich was. Opening the halves up, I was overwhelmed by the amount of smoked chicken – the flesh was white but the outsides was lightly dark-brown from the smokiness.

        I don’t know what “frontega” means but I thoroughly enjoyed this Panini. I’m sure Italians will scoff and say “a Panini, this isn’t!” But I would exclaim, “but delicious, it is”. The focaccia was crunchy and not too greasy, and chewy and well-seasoned on the inside. The chicken was well-seasoned and moist. The cheese and veggies were just as essential as the meat. And the chipotle mayo married everything together. I would look forward to ordering this sandwich again.
