Such an easy meal and has lots of flavor. I took a lazy route and bought sub buns which is a good thing since every available bit of counter/table space is overflowing at the moment. It seems that getting organized sometimes means making a mess.
Chicken Parmesan Sub
Sub buns, cut in half, buttered and toasted to a golden brown
Chicken strips ~
2 chicken breasts, cut into strips
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
Soak chicken breast strips in buttermilk for 15 minutes. Combine all the bread crumbs and spices in a bowl. Dip chicken in crumbs and place on a greased baking dish. Bake for 30 minutes at 325°.
For each sandwich ~
2 tbsp marinara sauce
2-3 slices fresh mozzarella
Place chicken strips on toasted buns. Place marinara sauce on top of strips and top with mozzarella slices. Bake for a 5 minutes until mozzarella melts.
Serve with extra marinara sauce.
To make buttermilk if you don't have on hand ~
Place 1 tbsp lemon juice in a glass measuring cup
Fill with milk to 1 cup measurement
