  • 1 Pound loaf of French Bread soft interior, not skinny baguette
  • 20-25 1-2 inch pieces Chicken breast tenders baked and cooled
  • 1 1/2 Cups Marinara sauce divided into 1 cup and 1/2 cup
  • 2 Cups Shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 Tbsp Melted butter
  • 2 Tsp Garlic powder
  • Parsley chopped, optional for garnish


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking pan with foil.
  • Make slits diagonally across your French bread about an inch to inch and a half apart.Cut down the bread but not all the way down so that it's still intact. Repeat the slicing this time going across. 
  • Add a spoonful of sauce into each bread crevice (spoonful equal to about 2 teaspoons' worth). That should use up about a cup of sauce. 
  • Insert one chicken tender in each bread crevice on top of the sauce. 
  • Now add the rest of the 1/2 cup of sauce on top of the chicken pieces.
  • Spread 2 cups of shredded mozzarella cheese inside the bread crevices. 
  • Combine your melted butter with garlic powder. brush on top of bread and on sides. 
  • Bake on your foil-lined baking pan for about 10-15 minutes in a 400 degree preheated oven, or until cheese is bubbly and fully melted. 
  • Sprinkle chopped parsley on top. Serve warm. So messy but worth it!
