grilled chicken panini and homemade sweet potato chips

Bless the person who invented sandwiches and bless x infinity the person who thought to grill it.  The glorious panini press is used weekly in our house and magically turns an okay sandwich into a delicious meal.  

The perfect accompaniment, of course, are homemade sweet potato chips which couldn’t be easier to make.  To do: Use two long(ish) sweet potatoes, keep the skin on, and cut into thin slices.  Toss with olive oil and seasonings (I used sea salt and cayenne pepper).  Arrange on two baking sheets and cook at 400 degrees for 20-30 minutes flipping halfway through.  The cook time depends on the thickness of the chips so make sure to monitor while they bake!

{Raw sweet potatoes are a great treat for puppies, too!  Charlie is très lucky and always gets the ends of our vegetables.  Can you even believe he stayed still for this?}

{Our panini ingredients: shredded gruyère, onions, peppers, arugula, grilled chicken, and tasty spread on a whole wheat baguette.}

{Quick tip: Add the arugula after the sandwich has been grilled to avoid sogginess.  Don’t forget to brush the outer side of the bread with olive olive to get that tasty crunch.}


  1. Looks delicious!! I need to make these chips asap!

  2. I want…I need…just a bite! Looks yummy:D I’ve made sweet potato fries, but will have to try the chips! New to your blog and glad I found your delicious little spot on the web. Happy weekend!
