Reviews for Parmesan Chicken Sandwiches
"Just finished these delicious sandwiches...easy to make and absolutely delectable. Used ciabatta rolls. Definitely keeper sandwiches!"
"Very tasty sandwich with an Italian twist. It would also be delicious as a main dish to serve over pasta by laying cheese over cooked chicken just long enough to melt and serving with a little extra marinara sauce!"
"We really enjoyed these sandwiches which were quick and easy to make. I had two really thick chicken breasts, so I cut them crosswise in thirds and didn't have to pound them too much to get them to the right thickness. That gave me the makings for six sandwiches so we are looking forward to leftovers tomorrow night. I used shredded pizza cheese that I had on hand and also used my own home-canned spaghetti sauce and homemade hamburger buns which I toasted first. Once the breaded chicken was done in the skillet, I topped the individual portions with cheese and then poured the spaghetti sauce over all and simmered for a few minutes. Very tasty, I will definitely be making these again."
"My family enjoyed eating these sandwiches. I used shredded mozzarella cheese because that's what I had on hand. The parmesan cheese gives the breading a good flavor. I think this is a great, easy recipe for someone who has never made a parmesan chicken sandwich to try."
"My family absolutely loved this sandwich. It's quick,easy, and both my two and four year old declared them a winner. Next time I'm going to toast the buns with a little garlic butter under the broiler to send this sandwich over the top!"
"This sandwich is a winner in many ways. Really quick and easy and delicious. Next time I will fry up some peppers and onions to add to the sandwich. I will make this again. Janet. VFE"
"One of our favorite Italian meals in a sandwich! My sons absolutely loved this! I also tried with un breaded chicken for a lighter version and we enjoyed that too!"
"My husband's favorite meal in a sandwich! I used thin sliced chicken breast, so no pounding, and I had enough for 4 sandwiches. I held the salt until after the chicken was fried. I topped them with the sauce, cheese and popped them under the broiler to melt it. Finished it off with a sprinkle of Italian seasoning on top. Perfection!"
"These are WONDERFUL! The family loved them and they were so simple and easy to make. I did add a little extra Parmesan because the family loves it. Will definitely make again and again!"
"Very good! Made exactly as written. Will make again! Joyce Moynihan, Voluteer Field Editor"
"Mama Mia! That was Delish! As a Volunteer ToH Field Editor, I try a lot of new recipes. This was this week's hit with my family. I did add saute mushrooms because we love them on hot sandwiches. I did sub mozzarella cheese for the provolone; although, I know we would also love the provolone. Husband and I were also discussing that this recipe would be easy to change to Tex Mex: Salsa for the marinara sauce and pepperjack cheese for the provolone."
"My family cleaned their plates. I had to make this for 3 servings and it was very easy to increase quantities. I mistakenly bought mozzarella instead of provolone but I think either would be delicious. I lightly toasted the rolls with butter and garlic spread. The flavor overall was delicious. This recipe is perfect for a busy weeknight dinner or a weekend lunch."
"Definitely a hit at my house. We will be having this again! Billie Pock, volunteer field editor"
"Tasty sandwiches. I just increased the cheese being a cheese lover! Gail Borczyk ,field editor"
"This is a very good recipe. The only thing I did different is I substituted mozzeralla cheese for the provolone cheese."
"My husband and I fell in love with these quick and easy sandwiches. We love chicken and this recipe is delicious. Be sure not to omit the marinara sauce. It gives these sandwiches a pop that takes them to a new level of flavor. Definitely a winner in our book. I’ve already added it to our meal rotation menu. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor."
"This is a great recipe. Used Kaiser rolls instead (I didnt feel like going to the store just for hoagie rolls!) and added mushrooms to the marinara. Can be a bit messy to eat but they are tasty. My husband loved em."
