Make

  1. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat with oil. Add chicken and sear on both sides until golden brown and cooked through (165F / 74C degrees), 6 to 10 minutes total. If all of the chicken won't fit in the pan at once, do this in batches. Add some more oil to the pan if it starts to look dry.

  2. Transfer chicken to a cutting board to rest for a few minutes. 

  3. Reheat leftover vegetables in the microwave.

  4. Serve chicken over leftover vegetables with green onion aioli spooned over top. Enjoy!

Very messy but good flavors. I preferred just putting leftover grilled veggies on pasta.

I liked this, but I found it difficult to keep the veggies from spilling out of the paninis while moving & cooking, maybe we needed to cut them smaller? Might substitute sweet potato fries next time.
