Chicken Parmesan Sub Sandwich Recipe

Chicken Parmesan Subs Recipe

This is the recipe my kids beg for. I mean chicken, cheese, toasted bread that crunches when you bite. We love Chicken Parmesan Subs. This time of year lots of folks are looking for portable meals. You know what I mean…quick, healthy meals you can take with you to the ballpark, swimming pool, and in our case, the hay field. Beyond ham & cheese sandwiches, what should you pack? I have a number of to-go suppers that keep the menu varied and interesting throughout the year.

Pizza Burgers, Avocado sandwiches, chicken strawberry wraps, calzones, and oven-baked chicken are among the meals I can easily make and take. I also highly suggest a good grilled cheese. How to make grilled cheese tasty is a post you shouldn’t miss. Most any portable meal pairs well with a fruit salad, so chop up a mix of your family’s favorite fruits and have it ready-to-go in the fridge.

I try to plan my meals so that the “to-go” meal will be quick & easy to prepare. So, when I want to make chicken parmesan subs, I plan to have spaghetti & meat sauce one night, grilled chicken the next night, and chicken parmesan subs the third night. I use the leftover meat sauce and grilled chicken as the base for the subs. For this week’s recipe, I’ve included grilling instructions for the chicken. Grilling them a night or two before assembling the subs will save you time. Substitute your favorite pasta sauce for meat sauce, if preferred.

Chicken Parmesan Subs Recipe

oven baked Chicken Parmesan Subs

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
½ t. grill seasoning, divided
½ t. Italian seasoning, divided
12” loaf Italian bread, sliced lengthwise
1 c. meat sauce, warmed
4 slices mozzarella cheese
2 T. parmesan cheese

Season chicken breasts with ¼ t. each of grill & Italian seasonings. Let sit while grill preheats. Grill chicken over medium heat 6-8 minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 170 degrees. Keep chicken warm and let sit 5 minutes before slicing across the grain into strips. Spread chicken slices evenly on bottom of bread. Top evenly with meat sauce, then cheeses. Broil for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly and cut surface of bread is browned. Close sandwich and slice into quarters.

*Wrap each quarter in aluminum foil for an on-the-go meal. Do not forget you can freeze these for later. It is an awesome way to make dinner once and have several meals. You will love our Chicken Parmesan Sub.
