I loved grilled cheese more than most foods, and this recipe is kind of like grilled cheese on steroids. It’s so much easier than you might think and makes for a hearty, delicious meal.

How To Make Chicken Parmesan Grilled Cheese:


  • 1 tbsp. butter
  • 2 slices white or sourdough bread
  • 1 tbsp. plus 2 tsp. marinara
  • 1 c. shredded mozzarella, divided
  • 1/4 c. freshly grated Parmesan, plus more for garnish
  • 3 oz. fresh or frozen breaded chicken, cubed
  • A few torn basil leaves
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Spread butter on one side of each slice of bread.
  2. Spread a tablespoon of marina sauce on the unbuttered side of one slice, then top with 3/4 cup of mozzarella, Parmesan, chicken, and basil.
  3. Top with another slice of bread, buttered side up.
  4. In a skillet over medium heat, cook sandwich until crispy (about 5 minutes).
  5. Spread remaining 2 teaspoons of marinara sauce on top of the sandwich, then top with remaining 1/4 cup of mozzarella.
  6. Broil in the oven until cheese is melted and golden.
  7. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan and pepper and serve hot!
