1 tbsp unsalted butter, divided

1 cup prepared macaroni and cheese, warmed

½ onion, thinly sliced

Salt and pepper to taste

¼ cup barbecue sauce

½ cup roast chicken, shredded

2 slices sourdough bread

3 slices sharp cheddar cheese


1 Melt ½ tbsp butter in a frying pan over a medium heat.

2 Add the onions and stir until caramelised, about 20 minutes. 

3 Season with salt and pepper.

4 Combine the barbecue sauce and chicken in a saucepan and cook until warmed through, about 5 minutes.

5 Preheat the panini press.

6 Melt the remaining butter and brush one side of each bread slice.

7 Flip over the bread and begin layering the sandwich – first the cheddar, then the macaroni, cheddar again, the shredded chicken, the onions and another slice of cheddar.

8 Top with the other slice of bread, buttered side up.

9 Cook the sandwich in the press until the cheese melts and the bread is golden.
