What sets this panini apart? Golden raisins team up with buttery Roth Gouda for a surprising, luscious taste in a sauce that can be made ahead.


  • Vegetable or peanut oil, for searing
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 pieces)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 8 slices Italian bread
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1 cup mixed baby greens
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
  • 8 slices Roth Gouda cheese


  1. Generously brush skillet with oil; heat over high. Add chicken breasts and sear. Reduce heat and cook through. Set aside. Slice when chicken cools slightly.
  2. Heat panini press to 350 degrees F.
  3. Butter one side of bread slices. Place butter-side-down, on work surface.
  4. Combine mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, and golden raisins. Spoon mixture over plain side of 4 bread slices. Divide greens, tomatoes, reserved chicken slices and Gouda slices over the 4 slices. Top with remaining plain bread slices, butter-side-up, to close sandwiches.
  5. Grill sandwiches in a panini press for 6 to 8 minutes, until heated through and cheese is melted.
