Chicken Parmesan Boats
I have been obsessed with filled breads lately. I love how quick they are to make for a really yummy and gourmet looking meal. These are the most satisfying sandwiches that don’t look anything like a sandwich! The loaf of bread stays crispy on the outside, while I fill the inside with tender chicken, tangy tomato sauce and creamy cheese. Top the delightful creation with some finely diced basil for that little burst of freshness. Sandwiches like these are absolutely wonderful for using up leftovers as well. Have leftover chicken from the rotisserie chicken you bought? How about that half jar of spaghetti sauce? My family loves this kind of quick meal. Before baking the filling in the bread for the final time, stuff the bread and freeze the whole thing. Take it out a couple hours ahead of time and you can toss this fresh meal into the oven and walk away for 30 minutes, pull out and have a healthy but quick meal. Company coming and you need an appetizer? This is perfect too. I can imagine a terrific party with all my stuffed bread recipes made up and sliced, just perfect for a group gathering.
Look at that saucy richness! YUM!
One half loaf serves about 5 for a snack.
