Chicken Parmesan Sandwich w/ Baked Potato

Dinner Tonight: Chicken Parmesan Sandwich w/ Baked Potato

I had an early morning Doctor's appointment so I had to skip Breakfast. I was a bit worried about a
health problem but it was nothing major, I'm on a prescription for 60 days. I always get a bit nervous when a health problem pops up, especially with my history of Melanoma Cancer. Not a bad day out today, high in the 30's and sunny. They say in the 50's and 60's by Saturday! For dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Parmesan Sandwich w/ Baked Potato.

I came across this recipe idea in the latest issue of Taste of Home, Weeknight Chicken Parmesan
Sandwiches. Sounded good so I made my version of it. I'll need; Perdue Perfect Portions Italian Style Boneless and Skinless Chicken Breasts, 1/2 cup Progresso Italian Style Bread Crumbs, 11/2 cup Ragu Pizza Sauce, 1 slice Boar's Head Mozzarella Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Grated Parmesan Cheese, and Aunt Millie’s Deli Style Whole Grain Mini Sub Buns. I only made 2 of these, 1 for myself and 1 for Mom or Dad after they seen how good it looks!

I had the Chicken Breast in the freezer. I laid 2 of the Breasts in the fridge overnight to thaw. To
prepare it I preheated the oven to 400°. Placed the bread crumbs in a large plastic container. Add the chicken, a piece and rolled the breast to coat. Transfer to a small baking pan that I lined with foil and sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray.

Baked, uncovered, 15-20 minutes or until no longer pink. Spooned the pasta sauce over the chicken. Sprinkled with cheeses. Baked 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese melted. Serve on the mini sub buns. This makes one delicious Chicken Sandwich! The Chicken, Sauce, Cheese all combine just right. I left the original recipe and web link at the end of the post.

For a side dish I had some large Russet Potatoes. I baked one of them and cut in half, seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Topped it with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. For dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Mousse.
