- 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 toss to coat. Transfer to a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan.

YUM!! My hubby made these, he baked in quite a bit of oil, mimicking fried. Ran through egg wash before bread crumbs and served on garlic toast. Oh Yeah, he may have been a little heavy handed on the cheese, nothing wrong with that. These sammies were ridiculously delicious!!!

These were amazing. Chicken Parmesan on a bun? It works! We changed this up a little and dipped chicken in egg before coating with breadcrumbs and we fried in a little olive oil instead of baking. I know it's not as healthy, but it just tastes so mych better. I want to make this a regular on our family menu!

Delicious! I substituted the chicken breast with Quorn Meatless Chicken cutlet; and used Alfredo sauce instead of pasta sauce. Thank you, Bridget, for sharing this recipe.

Delicious meal! I crushed butter and garlic croutons and used them instead of breadcrumbs.

Delicious! I will make this again. The chicken is great as an entree with a veggie dish as a side.
