Servings: 4 servings
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 loaf French bread
- 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into small, bite-sized pieces
- 1 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
- Fresh ground pepper to taste
- ¼ cup plus 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce divided
- ½ cup marinara sauce
- ½ cup thinly sliced red onion
- 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese shredded
- ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
- 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro or to taste
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with foil.
Coat a large skillet with vegetable oil and place over MEDIUM-HIGH heat. Sauté chopped chicken until nearly cooked through and barely any pink remains. Season with seasoning salt and fresh ground pepper as it cooks. Add 3 tablespoons BBQ sauce, reduce heat to MEDIUM, and continue to simmer for 3 or 4 minutes, until chicken is thoroughly cooked and sauce has thickened. Remove skillet from heat and set aside.
In a small bowl combine remaining ¼ cup BBQ sauce and marinara. Cut French bread in half and place it on the prepared baking sheet. Coat each half of bread with the sauce mixture. Divide chicken evenly between bread. Top with sliced red onions. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella and cheddar.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until cheese is melted and bubbly. Remove from oven and top with chopped cilantro. Allow to sit for about 5 minutes and then slice and serve.
