These chicken parm subs were so so yummy. If you live in Utah you may have visited a sandwich shop called, Moochies. It’s delicious, sloppy, fattening and perfect. I decided to make our own version of the chicken parmesan sub from there and oh my! It was really quite yummy.

All of the different flavors used in this sammy really come together and make what could look like just another ordinary sandwich into something worth drooling over. Fresh bread, meat sauce, delicious, melty cheese and the secret.

First, you need to buy the best bread you can find. It needs to be soft and squishy but still firm and solid enough to handle this baby. Then the important part, I insist that you cut open the bread, butter both sides, sprinkle each side with garlic salt like Johnny’s or Lawry’s that have the parsley etc. Now toast it in the oven and then add sauce to the bottom piece. You can use marinara, but a meat sauce actually enhances the whole sandwich. Add your chicken and enjoy!

Are Sub Sandwiches The Same As Hoagies?

Sub sandwiches are the same thing as hero, grinder, baguette, and hoagies.

They may be called by different names in different locations.

They are all a type of sandwich that consists of a long roll of bread split width wise into two pieces, and filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, vegetables, seasonings, and sauces.

Does Parmesan Chicken Use Mozerella Cheese?

Chicken parmesan is made with mozerella cheese, and/or provelone.

Is Chicken Parmigiana The Same As Chicken Parmesan?

Chicken parmigiana and chicken paresan are the same dish.

It’s a breaded chicken breast with lots of melted mozzarella and/or provolone.

  • This looks delicious and I really want to try but I’m confused. The pictures look as if the chicken is breaded and I don’t see anything in the recipe steps that breads the chicken. Is this a grilled chicken sandwich with meat sauce?

  • I actually tried Moochie’s not too long ago and I wasn’t too impressed. I ordered their cheesesteaks after being told it was the best in SLC, but sadly it wasn’t. Maybe I should stop by and order something else?
