Quick and easy meals are a life saver on busy days. This chicken parmesan casserole uses ingredients most of us keep on hand in the pantry, and combines them in a simple casserole dish. Taking the flavors of the much loved Italian classic, we’ve streamlined the process transforming it into a simple supper the whole family will love.
We’ve updated the Italian American classic, by sticking it in between a crusty Ciabatta bun that’s been spread with an irresistible sauce- with just enough left over for dipping.

I can’t stop. I won’t stop. No, I’m not trying to be Miley. I don’t want to get anywhere near Robin Thicke. I would much rather make a yummy slider sandwich than twerk. Seriously, though. I can’t seem to get enough of sliders recently. I don’t know if it’s the whole ‘mini’ thing that’s got me hooked, or just a refreshing change. I’m guessing a bit of both. In either case, I’ve pinned every new slider recipe I have found, and am on a mission to try them all. One recipe at a time of course, like the easiest cheeseburger sliders ever and our chicken and waffle sliders. This is the latest, and it lived up to it’s name. These petite, slightly varied versions, have all the tried and true flavors of Chicken Parmesan, but without all the work. These healthy sandwiches are perfect for a party, a dinner, or even for a lazy weekend lunch. They are sure to score a spot on your list of family favorite recipes.
