How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat broiler to high.

Step 2

Hollow out top and bottom halves of hoagie rolls, leaving a 1-inch-thick shell; reserve torn bread for another use. Place hoagie rolls, cut sides up, on a baking sheet, and broil for 1 minute or until rolls are toasted.

Step 3

Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Sprinkle chicken evenly with oregano, salt, and pepper. Add chicken to pan; cook 7 minutes, turning occasionally. Add bell pepper to pan; cook for 2 minutes or until bell pepper is tender and chicken is done. Stir in marinara sauce, and cook 30 seconds or until marinara is thoroughly heated.

Step 4

Transfer top halves of rolls to a plate. Divide chicken mixture evenly among bottom halves of rolls; top evenly with cheese. Broil 1 minute or until cheese melts. Top with top halves of rolls.

Good and easy. Next time I'll sub 1/2 of the pepper slices with thin sliced onion. Some minced garlic and a sprinkle of crushed red pepper would turn this into 4 stars easily.

Great sandwich. Tenders are a nice alternative to the usual.

Great little lunch that saves for tomorrow well. I'm always looking for good recipes that can be taken to work the next day and reheated in the microwave. I made the filling exactly as described but had to serve on ciabatta rolls instead of hoagies because they were out at the grocery store. I just reheated the chicken mixture in a microwave safe dish then put it on the the ciabatta and microwaved just long enough to melt the mozzarella & it worked perfectly the 2nd time around. I will definitely be making this again. I served it with bagged lettuce & a oil & vinegar dressing that I made adding a little oregano to compliment the dish.
