Baked Chicken Parm Subs

It's the day before Thanksgiving.  Lets not all pretend like we don't still need to eat.  There are still three square meals to be had today, the most important one being dinner.  And have I got a meal for you.  A simple, easy and mouth-watering meal.

Remember, say a month ago when I promised these subs on Facebook?  Well, life got in the way and I forgot about them.

So this past weekend when I roasted yet another chicken, I saved some of the meat for these subs.  We had them for lunch on Saturday and Sunday.  And I would have continued having them this week if I hadn't run out of bread, meat, sauce and cheese.

There is something to be said for warm, toasty, melty subs out of the oven.  Anytime I see subs, of any form, on a menu, my eyes are immediately transfixed.  I can look at other options but my number one choice always comes back to the sub.

You'd think I was from New York or Chicago or something.

Yet, here I live breathing in the glorious Iowa air.

Baked Chicken Parm Subs
*makes 4 large subs
4 hoagie or sub rolls
3 c. shredded chicken
2 c. marinara or spaghetti sauce
tons of mozzarella cheese
garlic salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Butter both sides of each side of bread, sprinkling with garlic salt.  Lay face down on a baking sheet and toast for 5 minutes.  Remove from the oven.

In a bowl combine shredded chicken and sauce.  Top chicken onto the bottom side of the toasted rolls and sprinkle dump on cheese.  Put those bottom halves topped with chicken and cheese back into the oven until cheese is melted.

Remove from the oven, top with other half of sub and eat your little heart away.

    I never used to eat a lot of sandwichs, but my boyfriend LOVES sandwich, so I'm starting to get more and more into them. I prefer hot.

    My kind of sub, looks awesome!

  5. I prefer hot sandwiches. Even if it's a cold meat sandwich, I pop it in the microwave or toast it! I can't stand a cold sandwich!
