My husband is a big garlic fan, so we use garlic bread crumbs and garlic sauce for our baked chicken sandwiches. They are so comforting on a chilly day. —Bridget Snyder, Syracuse, New York

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1 cup garlic bread crumbs
  • 1 cup garlic and herb pasta sauce
  • 1 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, optional
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split


  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Pound chicken with a meat mallet to 1/2-in. thickness. Place bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Add chicken, a few pieces at a time, and turn to coat. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.
  2. Bake, uncovered, until no longer pink, 15-20 minutes. Spoon pasta sauce over chicken. Top with mozzarella and, if desired, Parmesan cheese. Bake until cheese is melted, 2-3 minutes longer. Serve on rolls.
