Servings: 24

24 dinner rolls

6 cloves minced garlic

1 onion chopped

1 tablespoon oregano

1 tablespoon basil

½ teaspoon chili flakes

¼ teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon salt

3 cups marinara sauce

1 pound shredded rotisserie/cooked chicken

1 cup shredded parmesan cheese

1 pound fresh mozzarella, sliced


# Preheat oven to 425°F/220°C.

# Carve out a deep hole in the center of the dinner rolls. Press down the bottom of the bun to create a denser bottom layer.

# Add olive oil, onion, and garlic to a skillet and cook for about 20 minutes or until caramelized and softened.

# Add the oregano, basil, chili flakes, pepper, salt, marinara, chicken, and parmesan cheese. Cook until well combined, reduced, thick, and heated through.

# Put one thin slice of fresh mozzarella at the bottom of the dinner roll hole, fill with approximately ¼ cup of the chicken parmesan mixture, and top with another slice of mozzarella cheese.

# Bake rolls for 15 minutes or until the bread has darkened a little, the chicken mixture is bubbling, and the cheese melts.

# Let cool slightly, sprinkle with chopped fresh basil, and serve.

# Enjoy!
