Wanted to eat a chicken Parmesan sub but didn't feel like spending the time cooking and breading chicken. So I opted to cut corners using frozen chicken patties and pre-prepared ingredients to make my life easier. Picked up the sub rolls and couldn't justify eating that many calories, so opted instead for sliced Italian bread and thin-sliced cheese. Turned out so surprisingly good, I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place chicken patties on a baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and crispy, about 20 minutes. Cut chicken patties in half lengthwise.

  • Spread garlic butter onto 1 side of each bread slice.

  • Mix marinara sauce, basil, and garlic salt together in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until warmed, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir.

  • Place 1 bread slice, butter-side down, into a skillet; top with 2 slices provolone cheese, 1 tablespoon marinara sauce, 2 chicken patty halves, overlapped to cover bread, 2 tablespoons marinara sauce, 1 slice provolone cheese, and bread, butter-side up. Cook over medium heat until bread is crisp and cheese is melted, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining ingredients.

  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over remaining marinara sauce and serve alongside each sandwich.

Cook's Note:

Mozzarella cheese can be used in place of the Parmesan cheese.

This was a wonderful idea! i was in a pinch for dinner one night not only was this easy but my 4 year old actually had seconds! Kids liked it hubby was fine with it...I'm not sure how often I would make it but it was a wonderful spin on my "easy dinner night" which is just regular chicken patty sandwiches. I deep fried my patties to make them extra crispy and instead of garlic butter I used plain butter and sprinkled garlic salt lightly on the bread. Served with a side of raw veggies and dip and that was a dinner that I was actually very satisfied with. Thank you for this idea/recipe from my family to yours! Read More
