Do you want to make the best chicken parmesan sandwich ever? It all starts with crispy fried chicken cutlets, smothered in tomato sauce then topped with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. In Italian, it is called Pollo Alla Parmigiana. I like to call it just Chicken Parm. Put this between two slices of fresh bread, to create this Italian – American favorite. Now, how to achieve a moist crispy piece of chicken? I will give you my secret. Coat your chicken with flour. By following this tip you will be locking in the juices.
Next, dip your chicken in egg and then completely cover in seasoned breadcrumbs. After frying, you will have created that crunchy texture, we are all craving for. It will be impossible at this point, not to steal a piece. But don’t eat too many! You will want to make sure you have enough to assemble these delicious sandwiches.

I was raised in and around an Italian family. All my life I cooked and everyone around me cooked. It was my life and still is. In 2013 I had to go gluten-free for health reasons. I was devastated to learn that I can no longer enjoy bread and pasta, that I was so used to eating every day. Can you imagine an Italian girl not eating bread or pasta? During the last few years, I have experimented with all kinds of different products. Searching for a good tasting bread has been a struggle because there was not much available. I was super excited to find Three Bakers Rye Style bread while visiting CT, my home State. I was even more excited to learn it is available locally here in FL. It is absolutely amazing!
