Chicken Parmesan Melts are a tasty version of the classic Italian dish. A delicious sandwich baked to perfection with melted mozzarella cheese on top!
I’m fairly certain this is the fall of the shredded chicken in the Serbinski house. Sorry for the shredded chicken overload, but I’m THAT obsessed with this dinnertime shortcut. As I’ve mentioned time and time again, most Sunday’s I’m throwing a batch of chicken breasts in the slow cooker and adding a random homemade sauce in with them. Once cooked, I shred and have the base for a variety of shredded chicken meals. I guess you can say that’s the long short of how I came about making these chicken parmesan melts. Heck, I used this chicken breast and marinara base for parmesan chicken pasta. Why not change up the whole grain I serve it with and make it a melt?! Melt sounds naughtier… and what toddler wouldn’t jump on the chance to be a little naughty!
From one busy mom to another, enjoy these chicken parmesan melts. My kids gobbled them up! Which really means they picked off the cheese, ate the bread, and may or may not have accidentally eaten a piece or two of chicken. I devoured a low-carb version as I took the chicken mixture and had it over zucchini. While everyone looked at Mom like she was crazy, I enjoyed a comforting meal with minimal effort. I think you deserve one too!

Guys, that’s as simple as it’s been getting in my kitchen. While it feels funny making this a “recipe” on the blog, consider it a no-recipe meal that came to me one evening. And since I know many of you are doing homework or bath time right in the middle of the dinner witching hour, I’m thinking you could use a few no-brainer recipes too. Am I right?
