Inspired by Heidi's Brooklyn Deli.
During the last four years, it seems like some of our favorite things we've found in Vegas are places to eat. One place we absolutely love is Heidi's Brooklyn Deli, which has become somewhat of a lunchtime tradition among the UNLV dental students. The food (including the bread) is made fresh daily, and everything we've tried so far has been delicious. Some of our favorite sandwiches are the chicken salad, the reuben, the Cajun turkey with avocado, and the chicken parmesan. So good! I love getting their chocolate chip cookies and macaroni salad, too (which is amazing because I'm not a macaroni salad person). Whenever we make chicken parmesan, we use the leftovers in our imitation of the sandwich at Heidi's.
Chicken parmesan, thickly sliced (at least 1/2 breast per sandwich)
Fresh mozzarella cheese, shredded
Spread a generous amount of marinara sauce on one piece of bread. Layer chicken slices over marinara. Cover with mozzarella cheese. Toast chicken-covered piece of bread and empty piece (or broil in the oven if don't have a toaster oven) until bread is toasty and cheese is melted. Put sandwich together, slice (if desired), and dig in!
- We like to use this recipe for chicken parmesan, which we got from a friend of ours.
