Chicken Parmesan Subs Recipe

Chicken Parm and Garlic Bread Combine Forces For One Epic Sandwich

I love chicken parmesan, but my go-to recipe is messy — breadcrumbs always seem to end up in every nook of my kitchen — and time consuming. When I'm in desperate need of a comforting plate of this Italian classic, I'll turn to this quick, cheesy open-faced sandwich version.

Think of it as the lovechild of garlic bread and chicken parm, simplified. Hoagie rolls get buttered, toasted, and rubbed with fresh garlic, while chicken skips the messy, sticky breading step and instead is browned in oil and then bathed in a quick tomato sauce. All in all, the recipe takes less than an hour, making it an excellent candidate for busy weeknights.

  1. 4 thin chicken cutlets
  2. Kosher salt
  3. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  4. 4 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  5. 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  6. Freshly cracked black pepper
  7. Crushed red pepper
  8. Oregano
  9. 1 tablespoon grape-seed or vegetable oil
  10. 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  11. Two 6-inch firm-textured hoagie rolls, split
  12. 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Generously season the chicken cutlets with salt on both sides.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add 3 garlic cloves, and fry until lightly golden, about 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, and cook until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season the sauce to taste with salt, pepper, crushed red pepper, and oregano. Let simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the grape-seed oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Pat-dry the chicken cutlets. Once the oil is hot, add the chicken breasts, and brown on both sides.
  4. Add the chicken to the tomato sauce, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes to marry the flavors.
  5. Meanwhile, preheat the broiler. Spread a little butter on each hoagie roll half, place cut side up on a half-sheet pan, and broil until golden and crunchy, about 3 minutes. Gently rub with the remaining garlic clove.
  6. Distribute half of the mozzarella on the roll halves. Arrange the chicken and some sauce over the cheese, and then top with the remaining cheese. Broil until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 3 minutes.
