  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min.
  • Makes
    1 dozen

Ingredients

  • 24 ounces frozen breaded chicken tenders
  • 1 package (12 ounces) Hawaiian sweet rolls
  • 1 package (7-1/2 ounces) sliced provolone and mozzarella cheese blend
  • 1 jar (24 ounces) marinara sauce
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh basil

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 375°. Prepare chicken tenders according to package directions. Meanwhile, without separating rolls, cut horizontally in half; arrange roll bottoms in a greased 13x9-in. baking dish. Place half of cheese slices over roll bottoms. Bake until cheese is melted, 3-5 minutes.
  • Layer rolls with half of sauce, chicken tenders, remaining sauce and remaining cheese slices. Replace top halves of rolls.
  • For topping, microwave butter, garlic powder and red pepper flakes, covered, on high, stirring occasionally, until butter is melted. Pour over rolls; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake, uncovered, until golden brown and heated through, 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with basil before serving.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Dinner rolls also work in place of Hawaiian sweet rolls.
  • Sneak a few slices of pepperoni or salami onto each roll.
  • Chicken nuggets can be used instead of tenders.
