81. Organic Chicken and Sundried Tomato Panini at BLT Steak
Sometimes the south Florida sun burns too hot to eat a steak. BLT Steak's Organic Chicken and Sundried Tomato Panini is a delicious and satisfying alternative that won't leave you guilty for not having steak in a steakhouse.
The bread is crusty on the outside, soft on the inside. Between the bread you'll find thick slices of chilled white meat chicken, chopped egg, the greenest lettuce and the freshest tomatoes. Sundried tomato and a garlic/onion mayonnaise give the sandwich a punctuation of flavor. This sandwich proves that when you use only the freshest ingredients, a humble chicken sandwich can be elevated into something praiseworthy. Thin-cut fries accompany the panini to round out a lunch that will leave you sated, but not stuffed.
