Michael Symon's Chicken Mozzarella and Basil Sandwiches

This is really just a fried chicken sandwich, but since that is something that is loved around here, I'm sure you can imagine it was a hit.  We all gave this a 9, and although it was a calorie bomb, it was great.  I found this in Michael Symon's 5 in 5, and each sandwich was 823 calories for 6 sandwiches because we used two slices of garlic bread for the bread, but it will be less if you use less calorific bread.  Anyway, this was a hit, and easy to make, so here's what I did:

1/4 c flour
salt and pepper
1 egg
1/2 c dry bread crumbs
1/2 c Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 lbs chicken tenders
1/2 c olive oil
1/2 lb fresh mozzarella cheese cut into slices
12 slices garlic bread
1/2 c fresh basil leaves
1 tomato, sliced

Pour the flour in a bowl and season it well with salt and pepper.  In another bowl, beat the eggs, and in a third shallow bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan, and season it well with salt and pepper.  Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Season both sides of the chicken with salt and pepper, and then dredge each piece in the three bowls in order, flour, eggs, then bread crumbs.  Pour the oil into the pan, and then place the chicken in the oil.  Cook until browned well on both sides, and cooked through.  Place the mozzarella on top of the chicken slices, place on the bread and top with basil and tomato, then top with the last piece of bread.  Serve.

  1. Except for the fried chicken, this sounds good. I know that is the sandwich, but I am not a real fan of fried chicken sandwiches. Love mom
