Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Chicken Parmesan Sub Sandwiches

These sandwiches made for a fun and easy weeknight dinner for us. I love making sandwiches for dinner. My mom never did that and I'm not sure why. When I was a kid, our dinners were casseroles or Mexican food or sometimes my dad would grill steaks or burgers. I think food has really evolved over the years and I'm a firm believer in having fun with your food and switching things up from the same old standards. So here's a fun twist on Chicken Parmesan.....you should try it!

Chicken Parmesan Sub Sandwiches

2 cups pasta sauce
2 large chicken breasts ~ split
1 small onion ~ sliced
2 cloves garlic ~ minced
Salt & pepper to taste
1 - 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
Mozzarella cheese
Parmesan cheese
4 hoagie rolls or good bread
4 tablespoons butter ~ softened

In a large skillet, saute the onion and garlic in a little olive oil for 5 minutes.

Season the chicken and add it to the pan. Cook until done. 

Turn the oven to broil.

Slice open the rolls and butter. Place rolls on a baking sheet and toast.'

Remove the pan from the oven and spread some pasta sauce over both sides on each roll.

Place a piece of chicken along with some onion on each rolls then top with some cheese. Sprinkle a little Italian seasoning on the cheese.
