Lazy Chicken Parmesan Grilled Cheese

Rated as 4.75 out of 5 Stars

"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!"

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place chicken patties on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked through and crispy, about 20 minutes. Cut chicken patties in half lengthwise.
  3. Spread garlic butter onto 1 side of each bread slice.
  4. Mix marinara sauce, basil, and garlic salt together in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave until warmed, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Stir.
  5. 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.
  6. 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 ...

Super good recipe! I am not typically a fan of processed chicken but it works great in this recipe. Super simple and one kids and adults both are sure to love.

As written. Really tasty, hearty, and easy!
