Grilled Chicken Parmesan Sandwiches

Tender grilled chicken cutlets are topped with marinara sauce and Parmesan, then served on a bun.





It's the most wonderful time, of the year! I sing that song at least 3 time a year. On the first day of school, during Christmas and on the last day of school, LOL. Today is our last day of school and I could not be happier. 

We've been grilling a lot since the beginning of June. It's a little hard to keep things fresh, especially with my daughter around, but I've been thinking of new recipes to make this summer. This idea for chicken parm sandwiches came about one night, as I prepared some chicken cutlets for the grill. My original plan was to simply grill up the chicken and serve it on a bun with desired toppings. Then I saw some leftover marinara sauce in the fridge and I decided to top our grilled chicken with it, and some parm. I just hoped the kiddos would like it.

I found out a few years ago, that the trick to juicy boneless chicken on the grill, is to cook it over indirect heat. I heat up the grill until is screaming hot, to get a good sear on the chicken, then turn off half the burners and cook the chicken on the grates that are not in direct heat. The chicken doesn't dry out, as it cooks to the proper internal temperature.





Grilled Chicken Parm Sandwiches

6 chicken cutlets
6 Tbs garlic and herb seasoning (I used Pampered Chef)
1/2 C marinara sauce
1/3 C parmesan cheese
6 slices mozzarella cheese (I used some from the deli)
sliced tomatoes
green leaf lettuce
hamburger buns
mayonnaise

Preheat your grill until screaming hot.

Season chicken with garlic and herb seasoning, and place on hot grill. Cook until chicken releases easily from grates; about 5 minutes. Flip chicken and place on one half of the grill. Turn burners beneath the chicken off, leaving remaining burners on medium high. Cook, with the lid closed, until chicken reaches an internal temperature of 162 degrees F.

Once chicken reaches desired temperature, top each cutlet evenly with marinara sauce and sprinkle with parmesan cheese. Close lid and cook for another 3-5 minutes; until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F.

Serve chicken on buns, with mayonnaise, mozzarella, lettuce and tomato.

No Yeast Old Fashion Cinnamon Rolls

 These delicious cinnamon sticky rolls have been in my family for over 40 yrs. No yeast is required, so you can whip up a batch of these in no time. Still tender, sticky sweet and delicious! Ever since I can remember Mom would make these as a special treat. It wasn't too often, but every once in a while, we'd come home to these no yeast cinnamon rolls, as an after school snack. Growing up, this is what I thought cinnamon rolls were. I wasn't aware that there was a yeast version of cinnamon rolls. As much as I LOVE the yeast version, this no yeast version seems to make an appearance more frequently here at home.  Since there is no yeast in the dough, it does not need to rise for 30 minutes before being rolled out and baked. When I worked in the retirement home the residents were always excited when I made these cinnamon rolls. They said it reminded them of their childhood. It was amazing seeing how happy a simple recipe could make them. I don't make these very often and

Black Forest Roll Cake

Light and fluffy cherry and whipped cream filling is rolled in an airy sponge cake. 13 years ago, I made a dinner that I was totally proud of. Not only did it taste wonderful, it looks fantastic too. I was so proud of myself that I took a photo, which I wanted to share with my friends and family. Only I didn't know how I could share it with everyone, at the same time. Then a thought came to me- a blog!!!  I've always been a foodie. While growing up, I'd often watch talk shows, just to see the cooking segments. I'd sit with a pen and paper, quickly jotting down ingredients and directions, to hopefully recreate recipes at home. I still remember a beet salad I begged my mom to let me make, asking her to buy raspberry wine vinegar for the dressing. It turned out to be something neither of us enjoyed, and up until a few years ago, Mom still had the vinegar in her cupboard.  I first started my first blog, Hun... What's  for Dinner?, as a way to share recipes with my famil

The BEST Bacon Cheddar Deviled Eggs

 Hard boiled eggs are transformed into a magnificent, indulgent appetizer, by mixing the yolks with sharp cheddar cheese and smokey bacon. A welcome addition to any gathering and a great way to use those coloured hard boiled Easter eggs! Jump to Recipe Eater growing up was always a magical time. I love how my parents tried to make holidays such as Eater and Christmas so magical. I was always in awe when I would wake up to Easter treats on the couch, on Easter morning. It was a welcome sight after partaking in Lent for 40 days. Every lent we would give up candy, making us appreciate our Easter treats all that much more. Our family is Catholic, so Easter and Christmas were centered around religion and teachings, but I appreciate that Mom and Dad also made it fun and let us believe in things like the Easter Bunny and Santa Clause.  Mom would buy the Easter egg dying kits and we would colour eggs on the Saturday before Easter. Everyone would choose their favourite to enjoy for breakfast af
