Bring a medium saucepan of water to boil, add a pinch of salt and place chicken breast in boiling water. Depending on the size of chicken breast, it can take between 8-15 mins to cook through. I recommend removing chicken breast after 10 mins and slicing in half to check if it is no longer pink inside.
Once cooked, transfer chicken to a large bowl and shred using an electric hand mixer. Then, add the filling ingredients and combine. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Preheat oven to 180℃ / 360 ℉. Cut your paninis into halves. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt. Place on baking tray and bake for 5 mins.
Add mexicana cheese to the bottom of panini, then your pulled peri peri chicken filling, then mozzarella cheese and bake for 5 mins until cheese has melted. Enjoy!
