Chicken Parm Sub Sandwiches Recipe

Ingredients:

For the Chicken:

  • 2 large boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil (for frying)

For the Sandwiches:

  • 4 sub rolls, split
  • 1 1/2 cups marinara sauce (store-bought or homemade)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the Chicken:

  1. Butterfly the Chicken:
    • Slice each chicken breast in half horizontally to create four thin cutlets. Season both sides with salt and black pepper.
  2. Set Up Breading Stations:
    • Place the flour in a shallow dish.
    • Place the beaten eggs in another shallow dish.
    • In a third shallow dish, combine the breadcrumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and dried basil.
  3. Bread the Chicken:
    • Dredge each chicken cutlet in the flour, shaking off any excess.
    • Dip the floured cutlet into the beaten eggs, allowing any excess to drip off.
    • Press the cutlet into the breadcrumb mixture, ensuring it is fully coated. Repeat with all cutlets.
  4. Cook the Chicken:
    • Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
    • Fry the breaded chicken cutlets for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until golden brown and cooked through.
    • Remove and drain on paper towels.

Assemble the Sandwiches:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Prepare the Rolls:
    • Place the split sub rolls on a baking sheet.
  3. Layer the Ingredients:
    • Spread a generous amount of marinara sauce on the bottom half of each roll.
    • Place a fried chicken cutlet on top of the marinara sauce.
    • Spoon additional marinara sauce over each chicken cutlet.
    • Sprinkle shredded mozzarella cheese and grated Parmesan cheese over the sauce-covered chicken.
  4. Bake the Sandwiches:
    • Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven.
    • Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  5. Garnish and Serve:
    • Remove the sandwiches from the oven.
    • Sprinkle with chopped fresh basil and parsley if desired.
    • Close the sandwiches with the top half of the rolls.
    • Serve hot.

Tips:

  • For a crispier sandwich, you can toast the sub rolls in the oven before assembling.
  • If you prefer, you can use a mixture of mozzarella and provolone cheese for added flavor.
  • Serve with a side of extra marinara sauce for dipping and a green salad for a complete meal.
