Chicken Parmesan is one of my husbands favorite meals. I generally make the whole dish from scratch and cook it slow in the oven, so its not a meal I just throw together.  The breading of the chicken and cooking a sauce are the two most time consuming parts of the homemade recipe, so we came up with a quick and easy version using pre-breaded chicken strips or patties.

You can use breaded Chicken Patties or chicken strips, to make this recipe really simple. I thought they would be perfect for a quick and easy version of Chicken Parmesan. We have teens over at our house often, and I wanted a quick and easy meal I could put together for them, so I decided make Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches.

They were a huge hit. Not only did the teens like them, but I loved them as well, and I don’t often eat freezer type foods. These patties are real chicken though, and not pre-cooked, so they were juicy and flavorful, and did not have that typical freezer taste that I am not a fan of. It took about 5 minutes to prep this meal, 25 minutes to cook, and another 5 minutes to plate. Since most of that time was spent cooking (and only really required me to work on it ofr about 10 minutes), its also a great weeknight meal for busy families.

If you would prefer to not turn it into a sandwich it is a really easy “shortcut” recipe for Chicken Parmesan, but my favorite way to eat it was as a sandwich!

Ingredients Needed for these Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches:

  • Breaded Chicken Patties or Chicken Strips
  • Your favorite marinara sauce (I used a 3 Cheese Sauce)
  • Mozzarella Cheese (This is where I splurge, and buy the Fresh Mozzarella Cheese in liquid. You could use any Mozzarella you want though).
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Cole Slaw
  • Brioche Buns (or your favorite sandwich rolls)

To Make the Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches:

1) Lay out the Chicken Patties or chicken strips in a baking dish (use 4 – 6 with this recipe).

2) Top with the jar of Marinara Sauce (you can reserve 1/3 of the jar if you do 4, or use all if you use 6 to 8 patties).

Cook according to the directions on the Chicken box (time changes depending on the number of patties you are cooking.

3) Once the patties are cooked through take out the dish and top with the Mozzarella and Parmesan Cheeses.

4) Place it back in the oven and cook until the cheeses are bubbling (approx. 5 minutes)

5) Toast up your brioche buns. I do this by adding butter, and letting them cook face down in a frying pan until the butter gets golden on the bun (you could also do this under the broiler).

6) Top a toasted brioche bun with a Parmesan Chicken Patty.

Optional – top with coleslaw before putting the bun top on (like shown at top of the page). I like the extra crunch that the slaw adds to the sandwich!
