Secret Recipe Club: Chicken Parmesan Hero

It's the May edition of Secret Recipe Club and I am excited to share this tasty treat from Homemade Cravings. SOOOO many yummy things you can find at this wonderful website full of family friendly meals. You will easily find something you will enjoy making and serving for you and your family here! The author of this terrific blog is a New Jersey stay at home mom to 4 kiddos, and you can see a glimpse into their lives through the wonderful recipes she shares on her website.

I opted to make Chicken Parmesan Heroes (using the Chicken Parmesan Tenders recipe as well). Some of the other items I bookmarked to make later include: Chicken Enchiladas, Garlic Bread Steak Sandwiches, and Crispy Honey Pork!

These sandwiches are so good! You can't go wrong with tender, flavorful breaded chicken topped with sauce and cheese and sandwiched between a baguette. It is a wonderful combination, and these were eaten happily and quickly in our house! My son wanted the leftovers as soon as it was lunch the next day - he had to fight me for them though. These are a great addition for the quick weeknight meals as well.

Chicken Parmesan Hero Sandwiches

1 lb chicken breast, pounded thin
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs (or 1 cup plain breadcrumbs or crushed crackers with 1 TBS Italian seasoning and 1/2 TBS garlic powder)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Olive oil
2 - 4 oz sliced cheese (Swiss, mozzarella, Monterrey jack, etc.)
1/2 cup spaghetti sauce
1 baguette

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Combine chicken and buttermilk in a bowl and let sit 15 minutes (or longer in the fridge).
  3. Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan.
  4. Dip chicken pieces in bread crumb mixture and place on a baking sheet.
  5. Drizzle with olive oil and bake for 15-20 minutes until crispy on top.
  6. Meanwhile, slice baguette into sandwich sized pieces and slice lengthwise.
  7. When chicken is done baking, pull out of the oven and spread sauce over the tops and cover with sliced cheese. Put back into the oven and bake 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted. Put bread into the oven at the same time to toast (remove after about 5 minutes, or when lightly toasted and heated through).
  8. Cut chicken to size if needed (so it will fit on the baguette). Layer chicken on bottom half of baguette and top with the other half. Serve immediately (serve with a side of spaghetti sauce to dip in if desired).
