Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches with Grilled Zucchini {Easy Dinner}

This is the ultimate comfort food sandwich yet much leaner than a traditional meatball sub. You can always skip the crusty roll and serve the savory chicken on a gluten-free roll or right on top of a salad or a bed of fresh spinach. This make a large sandwich! I typically eat 1/2 a sandwich and pile on the veggies and salad. Enjoy!

Recipe: (serves 4-6)
4 crusty rolls (optional)
4 chicken breasts
2 large zucchini, sliced lengthwise
1/2 cup of your favorite marinara sauce
4-6 ounces of mozzarella cheese, sliced
Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper

1. Preheat grill.
2. Warm a grill pan over medium heat. Lightly season zucchini strips with salt and pepper and grill flat-side down for 5-7 minutes, flipping once, until zucchini is crisp-tender. Set aside.

3. Grill chicken on hot grill for 5-7 minutes per side or until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees and is no longer pink. Allow chicken to rest.
4. Preheat oven to BROIL.
5. Spread a couple tablespoons of marinara on top of each chicken breast and top with 1-2 slices of mozzarella cheese.
6. Broil on a baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, watching very closely!, until cheese is melted and golden. Sprinkle each one with Parmesan cheese
7. Serve chicken in a crusty roll along side grilled zucchini and a fresh green salad.
