Chicken Parmesan Sub

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
Allow to sit for 5 minutes
