Chicken Parmesan Sub Skewers


Chicken Parmesan Sub Skewers are a fun, easy, and kid friendly recipe!
Recipe type: Main Course
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 4
  • 1 tube pillsbury breadstick dough
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cubed into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cups of your favorite homemade or premade marinara sauce (I use prego traditional)
  • 1 cup grated parmesan cheese (sprinkle kind!)
  • ¼ cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • 8 wooden or metal skewers (is using wooden, soak in water for 30 minutes before placing on grill or putting in the oven)
  • shredded mozzarella cheese for garnish
  1. Place chicken in a ziplock bag or bowl with the marinara sauce and coat completely
  2. Pour all parmesan cheese into medium sized bowl. Take each piece of chicken and dredge in parmesan cheese, coating completely
  3. Assemble your skewers by threading one end of breadstick dough, then a piece of chicken, then wrapping with breadstick, followed by another piece of chicken, and repeating until you reach the end of your breadstick dough. For me it wrapped around 3 cubes of chicken.
  4. Grill for about 10 minutes on each side, or bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 (less depending on thickness of chicken)
  5. Take off of the heat and sprinkle with mozzarella
  6. Enjoy

I like to dip mine in some of that marinara sauce after they are all done as well! DELICIOUS!

Roasted Parmesan Potatoes

Roasted Parmesan Potatoes
5-6 medium sized potatoes (I like using red potatoes) skins on, scrubbed and diced
3-4 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (the kind that you shake over spaghetti!)
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
Line a large baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray with non-stick cooking spray. Dump diced potatoes on the foil-lined pan. Drizzle the olive oil over the potatoes and using your hands, gently toss the potatoes until oil has covered all the potatoes.
In a small bowl, mix together the Parmesan cheese, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sprinkle over the potatoes and once again use your hands to incorporate spices over the potatoes.
Place pan in the oven and cook for 35-45 minutes, stirring every 10-15 minutes so that they are evenly cooked and don't get burned on the bottom. When finished baking, remove from oven and sprinkle with additional salt and pepper if desired.
Makes 4-5 servings.
