If it still feels too chilly or inconvenient to spark up the grill, and you’re looking for a quick way to use up that thawed chicken in your fridge before it goes bad, these Baked Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches are a nice easy meal idea to add to your rotation this week. Although we love a classic chicken parm, this recipe removes the breading step to keep it simple and less heavy.

Is Chicken Parmesan (Parmigiana) Italian?
A little Italian food-ducation for you – although Chicken Parmigiana is often served in North American restaurants as Italian cuisine, it to didn’t actually originate from Italy and is more of an American creation. The ingredients and process mimic the authentic Italian parmigiana di melanzane (Eggplant Parmesan) so the chicken (“pollo”) version is inspired by this dish.
